Overview

At Madden, we are on a mission to encourage people to discover new locations and experiences. We believe getting people out of their homes and into new places makes for stronger individuals, communities, and economies. As a nationally recognized leader in marketing, we work across the travel and tourism industry to help our clients tell their local stories to a global audience and showcase why locations are the best places to live, work, and explore.

Our partners range from organizations in smaller communities to some of the most traveled destinations in the world. We ensure our clients and our team stay informed of the latest research, marketing techniques, and technology solutions that can improve how they showcase their community.

Come join us and make the world a little more connected via travel as a Senior WordPress and Front End Developer.

What we need from you

You’ll create custom websites and web experiences using WordPress and other technologies. As a senior developer, we’ll look to you to help drive and lead our MarTech products and offerings to keep them at the forefront of the travel industry. You’ll need to know your way around a variety of platforms and tools, and you’ll need to be up-to-date on the modern ways that websites are built and deployed. We are fast-moving, and we respond quickly to what our clients need from us. It will be your job to help us do that.

What you will get from us

We see our relationship with you as a symbiotic one, and we want to see you thrive and grow with us. We’ll need a few months to get you used to all the company ins and outs, but within a week of joining us, you’ll have worked on your first client project. You’ll start working right away with all the disciplines on your team, and you’ll have support from them all to help fill in the gaps as you settle in. We are a friendly bunch, and anybody you need will be available to help.

After a few months, you’ll be enjoying a variety of technical challenges on simultaneous projects. We will keep you busy, but we will respect your work-life balance. (By this point, we’ll have also likely asked to see pictures of any animals you have in your house.)

Beyond that, we will invest in you as you invest in us. We offer learning and training opportunities, as well as a tech culture that encourages the exploration of new solutions and approaches to challenges. We want to hear how you think we can improve and do better, and we want to help you do the same.

Tech specs

  • We are an agency, so we are a creative bunch. You’ll do well if that sounds good to you.
  • We need you to really know WordPress – you write custom themes, blocks, and plugins, and you promise to not mention a love of theme builders in your interview.
  • You might use JQuery, but you know how to not use it, too.
  • You know when you don’t know an answer, but you also go get that answer on your own.
  • You have built more than a few consumer-facing websites that focus on results.
  • Clients need to marvel at your ability to speak human with them.
  • You respect “pixel perfect” but you also contribute your expertise to the project.
