Modern Tribe

Work from anywhere in the US or Canada; if you are in Central or South America, let’s talk. This will be a 100% remote position. If your working hours are in a timezone outside of the US range, but you work 4+ hours of overlap each day our team might be able to consider your application.

The Opportunity

Modern Tribe is looking for a talented Frontend Developer to join our team.

We’re currently working on high-profile WordPress implementations that range between conventional to seriously bleeding edge. We will want to see plugin code examples – public plugins are ideal. We want people that are able to develop code that can withstand high profile sites and intense loads. You should be comfortable working as part of a team – your code will have to integrate into an existing architecture. If tightly optimized code get’s you excited – you’re probably a good fit.

Do you have a dog eared copy of ‘Secrets of the JavaScript Ninja’beside your bed? Would you be excited to work on large scale WordPress projects that actually require your JavaScript skills? Would you be stoked to push the limits of where JavaScript and WordPress can play nicely together?

The opportunity calls for a mixed set of skills. We need someone with expert level CSS skills, impeccable WordPress experience, and solid JavaScript & PHP skills. Experience building sites with extremely large loads is a plus. We like our stuff to run fast and smooth.

Modern Tribe believes in quality. In our products. In our relationships. In our lives. We are 100% distributed and close as can be.

Who We Are

Everyday we strive to fulfill our motto: live well and do good work. We hope you will consider joining us.
