What are you waiting for?
Can you live up to
You will be turning out high-quality, high-converting websites and landing pages for our clients. You will work primarily in HubSpot and WordPress and occasionally Shopify.
You should be eager to learn about the latest techniques for creating pages that are optimized for conversions and search engines.
You will be working with a team of other developers, strategists, and copywriters — so it's important that you are comfortable working with others.
Your code needs to be clean, well-commented, and revisioned. You may be creating pages using drag/drop editors like Thrive Architect or you could be custom-coding templates from scratch in HubSpot. You will be expected to follow standards and client briefs.
Can you handle
produce quality pages
- From the branding to the code, we expect the pages you develop to follow all current industry-standard best practices.
- We have internal guidelines and best practices that we expect you to follow.
- In some cases, our clients will also have their own internal guidelines and those will need to be adhered to as well.
Accuracy & Detail
Our editorial team will provide you with content. Designers can provide design assets. Strategists will provide guidance on the goal of the pages you're developing, and our account managers will help you get what you need from the client.
Your responsibility to the team is to take everything that you're given and create an accurate and detail-oriented finished product.
Able to Hold a Deadline
Our clients expect us to meet an agreed-upon publishing schedule. This means that we need your assignments from you by the due dates outlined. If you are even in danger of missing a deadline, you are responsible for communicating that with your team.
schedule / Publish pages
Depending on your skill level, you may also be asked to publish or schedule pages or launch complete websites. You will be trained on our processes before you take on this responsibility.
Capable of working remotely
We don't maintain a physical office space and instead we allow our employees to work remotely. You will mostly be able to set your own schedule. There will be regular meetings with other members of your team and potentially with clients that you will be expected to attend, but otherwise, the driving force is high-quality work delivered on time, not a time clock.
Are You a GOOD FIT?
You absolutely must be a self-motivated person that enjoys their job and wants to learn more. Our industry is fast-paced, and our clients might be moving even faster.
You must be DRIVEN to succeed.
You will be encouraged and expected to stay on top of trends in your field.
Frequently Asked Questions
How many hours will I work each week?
We hire developers on a part time and full time basis. Part time might work as few as 10-12 hours where full time would work around 40 hours per week.
What are the benefits?
Aside from required meetings, you have the ability to set your own schedule. You will be eligible for benefits like unlimited vacation based on your role as either part or full time.
What qualifications do I need?
At Sparkitive, Experience and Motivation are essential. A degree is nice, but we want to know that you can do this job and that you'll love waking up each day to do it. We can train technical ability, but you must come with passion.
What kinds of clients and industries do you work with?
99% of our clients are in the professional services industry. They may have customers in the commercial or residential space, but most are commercial. This includes companies in the healthcare, industrial, and construction industries.
What are deadlines like typically?
In most cases, you will have assignments weeks in advance. There are rare cases where you might need to turn around an assignment or revision request within a day or two, but those are rare and we'll communicate ahead of time to ensure that you're available.
Will I be working with clients directly?
Most of the time you will not work with clients directly. You'll be provided a technical brief and any additional information that you need. However, there are times where it makes sense to have you work with the client closer to avoid miscommunications and delays.
