  • Collaborate and review code to ensure a high quality of coding best practices and standards

  • Assisting with the support of existing websites on WordPress to make updates or troubleshoot issues

  • Provide analysis of current programs which includes performance, diagnosis, and designing solutions to daily needs

  • Assist with testing, debugging, documentation, and overall quality assurance of projects

We strive in an accountability-based management style, where the channels of communication to your team lead are open and where project management is done in a collaborative manner.
