Element 47 is a growing marketing and web development agency based in the Nashville area, looking for a new WordPress Developer. We are considering both local and remote candidates.

Our work is fast-paced and consists of a mix of project-based and retainer-based work. This position will be involved in both of those pieces, creating and executing marketing strategies in collaboration with our internal team and clients.

We want Element 47 to be a great place to work! Happy employees make life better for everyone involved—colleagues, clients, and of course, themselves. Here are a few reasons why we think you’d like it here:

  • We value life outside of the office. We rarely work more than 40 hours a week. We have fun while we do great work.
  • You can wear a t-shirt to work. “Dress for your day,” as we say. If you’re working from home, you don’t have to wear pants, but we ask that you not stand up on Zoom calls.
  • You’re good at what you do. And you want to get better. Every day we get to try new things and learn new things.
  • We’re good at what we do. Check out our website to see for yourself (element47.co). Each of us is working to master our craft. We want to be great and that means we have to learn something new every day.

How to Apply

Each time we hire, we wait until we find THE right person. Someone who has the right temperament to work in our well-defined culture that is based on accountability at every level. We—and our clients—wouldn’t have it any other way.

So spend some time on our website, learn how we think and what we do. Get to know us if you want us to get to know you.

The first step in the application process: Send us your resume and cover letter, and we’ll follow up with a Culture Index link to better understand how you’re wired. Want to get our attention? Make it painfully apparent that you’re the right person and that you want to work here, not just somewhere.

Qualified candidates will be given a small test project as part of the application process so we can see your WordPress skills in action.
