Senior Wordpress and Shopify Developer


About Us:

Miroma Project Factory (MPF) are a global award-winning digital development company providing creative digital products across web, mobile, social media, interactive TV, virtual worlds, and games platforms. Founded in 2005, the company produces interactive solutions focused especially on behaviour change and gamification to positive influence our communities. 

What makes us tick:

We believe in using tech for good, we passionately seek diversity in our team and leave egos at the door. We believe in an environment that is inclusive, supportive, creative, and most importantly fun. Our values are important to us, and we make these central to everything we do. Our business is founded on strong relationships, trust, quality, and innovation. We are an ambitious team who want to create opportunity and desire for everyone to grow personally. 

What We Need:

We’re looking for a Senior WordPress / Shopify Developer to lead the way in creating and maintaining beautiful and functional websites end to end using best practice methodologies to exceed client and user expectations (we work with big, small and “in-between” organisations – diversity is our middle name!). 

You have developed a high level of knowledge of best-in-class Ecomm and web-based experiences from design-driven seamless solutions bringing brand story to life, alongside technical optimization, to performance and speed allowing revenue to flow seamlessly. You like to implement modern and complex designs beautifully (you don’t need to “be” a designer or animator, we have some great ones!).

You will manage a small, but perfectly formed team to rapidly develop, and deploy websites; manage backups and databases (WordPress, Magento, Shopify Command-Line Interface) as part of deployments, and be familiar with hosting and domain information. And yes, you’ve developed a good level of business acumen and can keep your eye on a few plates as they spin, and still crack the odd joke along the way…


About You:

Website Builds: You use best practices for theme and plugin development, PHP (WordPress) and Liquid (Shopify) development exposure as well as managing deployment and maintenance of sites with solid understanding of Shopify and Shopify Plus functions, CLI and available plugins

WordPress / Shopify: You have an expert understanding of WordPress, WordPress CLI, Advanced Custom Fields, Gutenberg block development, parent / child theming and WordPress Customiser, and some expertise writing HTML and styling using CSS, and using preprocessors (SCSS or LESS) and animating HTML5 using CSS3 or animation libraries such as Lottie or GreenSock

Web Performance: Your background has given you a solid understanding of web performance techniques, (Google Lighthouse / Page Speed Insights, optimisation of script and code file size, image optimisations using newer image formats (WebP and SVG and relevant caching techniques to enhance performance) with a good grasp of DOM elements, git development workflows and the ability to add fun to flat designs

Team Leadership – You manage our current team of two (1 x front end dev + 1x full stack dev with animation strengths) with excellent communication and people skills able to provide guidance, support and management of the delivery of tactical solutions and outcomes. Ensuring they seamlessly work and blend with the wider technical team

Quality: It’s in your DNA - you’re accurate and you love detail. You set and manage priorities, especially time management and task scheduling with an eye for quality delivery at every turn. You critically analyse your own work to solve any potential problems and pride yourself on not being a transaction person but a “project/customer expectation” person

All things Digital: You’re curious and have a good understanding of digital technologies (web, game and mobile) with UX along with change request and project management processes - ticketing workflows, wireframes and digital project management tools are your “happy place”

Collaboration: You collaborate with teammates to support team outcomes; you listen and learn and share with your colleagues

Communication: Your communication style and skills are terrific when liaising with production / project management peers and development team members and clients. You recognise that the only dumb question is the one that’s not asked

Problem solving: You have the capability to be on the front foot with “solutions” for yourself, your clients, and the team – with a positive approach and a sense of calm

Technical: Okay, and now for the Technical Shopping List (remember you might have some, but not all – and that’s fine – we’d love to talk to you!) DNS Records / Caching Techniques, PHP, JQUERY, CSS, HTML 5, JSONREST APIs & Shopify object/properties, AJAZ APIs and meta fields…
