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.
My time at Timeforcake Creative Media, Inc. began back in the day with the simple creation of static HTML websites targeted at desktops only. A decade later I was responsible for the planning, development, improvement, streamlining, speeding-up-of, upgrades, and ongoing maintenance of sites using various content management systems including Contribute, Textpattern, ExpressionEngine, MojoMotor, Shopify and of course, my bread and butter: WordPress.
Responsible for customer relations, online store content management and product acquisition.
Josh is a diligent, detail-oriented developer who's always on top of things. He skillfully builds elegant front- and back-end experiences, and has a knack for asking the right questions to accomplish business goals _and_ deliver an exceptional experience to users and visitors.
Josh is by far one of the most reliable and responsive team members I've ever had the pleasure of dealing with in 16 years running a web agency. In addition to being a true front-end and WordPress expert, he's thorough, he's clear, he doesn't miss deadlines and—this is critical to me—he's impeccable with his word.
I've worked with Josh on several projects over the past few years. In that time, he's proven himself to be a skilled communicator - he asks insightful questions, listens well, and empathizes with the various stakeholders; he's reliable - he responds quickly to my questions and requests, is thorough and thoughtful, and does what he says he's gonna do. I cannot recommend him enough.
Working with Josh has been a highlight of the creation of our new website. He is efficient, responsive, and can fix anything I throw at him. He is also kind and professional, and I never have to follow up or ask for anything twice. Josh sets clear expectations, and follows through on them without exception. Working with him has been a very positive experience.
I'm currently taking on freelance work. If you choose to work with me, you'll get prompt communications in plain English and solid work that's built to last.
