Joshua Petrucci Portrait

DisplayGround Development, Inc.

WordPress & Front-End Development

Hello! I'm Josh Petrucci.
I've been a Front-End Web Developer since 2005. I take pride in building websites that are simple, built to last, and easy for the end-user to use and non-tech-savvy content managers to manage.

Unlike many freelancers, I'm not doing this as a side gig while I look for a full-time job. Taking care of my individual clients is all I do, full-time. This means that when we work together, you'll be able to relax knowing you're working with a deeply experienced developer who's insanely reliable, responsive, and competent—and will be here for you for years to come.

Work Experience

Frisco, CO
Senior Front-End Developer
2015 - Present

As senior front-end developer, I am responsible for working closely with our lead designer to plan out highly usable sites, then taking final, approved website designs and converting them into live, fully-functioning websites. This includes the creation of all html/css/js, determining responsive layouts based only on desktop designs, and then highly-detailed CMS integrations (WordPress) focused on exceptional ease of use for non-tech-savvy content managers. I also cover QA, direct client communications and expectation setting, and client CMS training.

This is my bread (see WordPress for the butter). I build rock-solid, reliable websites that are fast, responsive, accessible and intuitive to use. Additionally I have an eye for design (I actually went to art school) and can stay completely true your designer's comps.

WordPress

Expert, 12 years
I built my first WordPress-powered website in 2007, and that website has remained live with minimal changes for over a decade. My custom themes are built to last with minimal reliance on third-party software, and they're simple and intuitive to manage for non-coders.

Advanced, 10 years
I've been working on websites since 2005. In that time I've had to solve and find workarounds to countless problems ranging from second-rate hosting platforms to support for deprecated browsers to buggy inherited software to downright negligent developers. If you've got a question about your website, I probably have an answer.
