We are looking for a Web Developer to work on a news website project.

A newspaper in USA that gets published every two weeks offering news in USA. The website offers both articles from the paper and online-only daily news.

What makes this project interesting is that the current site has been designed over 10 years ago and it is built entirely with HTML. The challenge is to move from old technology and standards to a new one while creating a new site design that will offer seamless transition for our readers from old way of reading our news to a faster, more convenient and interactive experience. We expect exponential growth from this revamp and positive feedback from our readers.

The site is being designed by the internal team and a file in PSD format will be provided.

Project Scope:

Responsive and mobile device compatible

Semantic code and SEO friendly structure

Light and fast to load


Database-driven CMS

Fast and easy to use interface and tools

Preferred Open source CMS: WordPress, Joomla or Drupal


• You must be a PHP Developer who has experience with CMS (including WordPress, Joomla and Drupal) and front-end development with HTML, CSS and jQuery.

• Must have expert knowledge and experience with Wordpress, Joomla or Drupal and can advise best solution for the project, to the detail of most appropriate plugins/extensions required to meet the feature requirements.

In web development, we believe these 3 pillars are very important to a success of a project. We will select a developer who believes in them.

1. Deadline is extremely important

You must respect Project Timeline and milestones. Work must be delivered on time.

2. Good user experience counts

You’ve got an eye for detail, especially when it comes to design. We believe the site can grow exponentially if it offers a good user experience and that only comes with a good mix of design and programming.

3. Code with Passion

We’re looking for people who will dedicate time and energy to complete a given project and will feel proud about the accomplishment. Sharing ideas and finding most appropriate solution to a given problem, even if it defies what’s stated in the original requirement, will be encouraged in this project.

We’re also looking for long-term prospects as we have plans to revamp other sites in the group. We’d also be introducing more marketing features and interactive sections to our news site in the near future. So, if we love you for your work, we will consider hiring you full-time.
