Seeking Part-Time Local PHP Developer

We are seeking a part-time local PHP developer to work out of our Sherwood office.

Job Description

Generally, the work will be scattered and small tasks. Occasionally tasks that may take a few days to a couple of weeks to complete.

  • Communicate over email and phone with clients about their same-day change requests.
  • Enter them into our project management tool.
  • Complete those tasks or coordinate with relevant staff (such as a graphic designer on staff) to complete them with maximum focus for the fastest possible turnaround without compromising quality assurance.


  • Telecommuting will almost certainly become the norm. Most of our team operates remotely. But for the first 2 months it will likely be in-office every day between 9AM and 5PM (part time can fit anytime within those hours).
  • Many of us are gamers and have game consoles and gaming laptops available for occasional use here.
  • We are a Teaching Company, so we encourage honesty about your skill-weaknesses and supporting you to learn and improve on them.
  • We’re generally very laid back about what time you show up to work, as long as it doesn’t interfere with clients needs or other staff.
  • If you need, we can provide a laptop and external monitor to work from. Razer Blade 2015 or MacBook Air 2015.
