Senior Full-Stack WordPress Developer with Managerial Functions

Who We Are:

Harbinger Marketing: We are a fast-growing marketing and web development company based in the United States. Due to our team’s exponential growth, we are looking to expand and enhance our team. Currently, we are working with contractors all over the world. This has been a successful strategy for some time, but we have decided to make a big change.

We believe that the best work happens in an environment where an employee is more than a number and where an employer is more than a paycheck. Our team shares a deep commitment to treating each other with love, respect, and dignity. We spend a lot of time “at work”; life is too short not to work at a company that you love. We believe that the best work will come from a team that is not fully remote and share life in common beyond their work in at least some capacity.

Harbinger Marketing is planning to develop a Bulgarian team located in the city of Varna and eventually establish an office and robust team which will service 100% of Harbinger’s development needs. We have a long-standing member of Harbinger located in the city of Varna who will spearhead this initiative. The role will be a full-time remote contract position at first with limited face-to-face interaction with our team in Varna. The goal would be to eventually transition this role to a regular full-time position as a part of the subsidiary we start in Bulgaria, and an office we establish in Varna.

The professional we’re looking for should be located in Varna, nearby Varna, or willing to relocate.

About the Role:

  • The senior developer will be responsible for working with and communicating effectively with the Lead Developer, other Developers, Project Managers, Art Director, and completing each task. We require them to be proactive by showing initiative in the process in order to create and maintain a high-quality end product.
  • The requirements and assets are being delivered to our senior developer by way of our project management software. They are expected to learn the project management software and time tracking software and implement them into their daily workflow. This helps us to work efficiently and stay ahead of deadlines.
