We are looking for a for a candidate to work as part of a team for an on-going 10-week project, with the possibility of making it a full-time position for the right candidate.  This job will allow you to work from home if necessary, however, you will need to attend a couple of days per week to sign off and show development and what you’ve worked on.

The challenge:

We are looking to update and move our website to a different platform. Currently, it is on MODx. We will keep this platform active during the project and upon completion launch the new site. You’ll be working alongside someone to determine the design requirements.

Ideally, we would like to use an open source system like WordPressWooCommerce or alternatively Squarespace as they allow the possibility of also implementing an e-commerce site which we are keen on. Therefore, we are looking for someone who is proficient in commercial and has experience in those systems. Furthermore, by using open source it will allow us to manage it in the future and create new pages as new products are added to our catalogue. They should be apt in creating and editing templates. Potentially we will need help with finding the right hosting to handle our growing requirements.

We use trade box and sage which have an API with online platforms such as eBay/AMAZON for a stock update etc- so potentially we need the solution that can implement the same processes. An essential part of the new website is it must have an online live chat option so we can sort out any urgent customer requests/requests.

Availability for user accounts- we need clients to be able to purchase products that are in stock and Improve our SEO and cross-platform compatibility.  We are looking to optimise how our website loads on mobile devices and product datasheets scale down to ‘printable’ versions.

Analytics software will allow us to monitor the behaviour of the visitor. What areas of the website they are visiting, how long they are spending on it and where they are from.

Database knowledge is desirable but not essential.
