Emerson Stone is looking to contract with a talented PHP developer, specifically with experience in the Magento eCommerce platform. We are working with a Magento 2 installation that will be running on the Claue theme to produce the majority of the pages for the client. There are approximately 5 custom pages that need to be produced and managed in the admin area of the installation. Additionally, there are some other custom features to be integrated, including CTA's, new data structures, and updated nav.
Emerson Stone will produce the majority of the custom page styling and markup, these will then need to be integrated into the site. We use GitHub to manage our codebases and will need all new features to be submitted via pull request.
The contract will start as soon as a qualified candidate is found and the project is scheduled to conclude in early January. If we have a good working relationship, there is potential for the position to turn into additional work, or a full-time position in the future.
