Team Lead - Senior Wordpress Developer

Web Development • London, Ontario

We’re on the hunt for a Team Lead to join our WordPress Development Team.

RhinoActive is looking for another talented developer to join our team. We’re looking for bright individuals that have a strong desire to learn and build fast, beautiful websites.

The Company

RhinoActive is a growing team comprised of designers, developers, and account managers. We work very closely with Red Rhino to ensure that the products we build are designed well and contain effective marketing strategies to give our clients the best chance of success. Our office is new and contains all the amenities you would expect out of a modern development agency.

Placing an emphasis on ‘Active’, we regularly partake in activities such as sports leagues, corporate challenges (internal and external), running clubs, golf outings, ping pong, and more. We encourage our team members to be active both inside and outside the office.

The Role

As a Team Lead, you will help solve technical challenges and direct developers on how to efficiently implement solutions. Team leads are also expected to contribute code on a daily basis, but will be more involved in strategy and architecture than a typical developer. Qualified candidates will have extensive experience developing custom WordPress websites and have good critical thinking skills.

  • Strong communication skills, both written and verbal
  • Knowledge of version control systems (GIT)
