Now Hiring 100% Remote Contract Roles

DQuinn.net wants to expand its network of web designers and web developers. Whether you’re a freelancer looking for contract work or a full-timer looking for a side gig, my decade-old studio needs your help.

All our contract roles are 100% remote (work without pants!), pay competitive rates (flat fee!), and are totally non-exclusive (I don’t accept non-competes, and neither should you). I’m my own project manager and principal, and my team usually consists of a remote visual designer, other specialists, and the client. If you seem like a good fit, let’s grab a beer or coffee and then go to our respective dimly-lit caves to type away.

Jobs

Front End Web Developer

Engagement Terms:

1) We’ll give you PSDs that have been hand-crafted by my resident visual design partner and you’ll cut them up into functioning HTML/CSS templates; 2) You’ll be provided with a local WordPress environment to work within, as well as house development standards and a house build script that you’ll adhere to; 3) We’ll do a QA review and handoff, and then you’ll go take a nap.

As a 1099 contractor, we provide work as it becomes available. Most projects can be completed in 2 or 3 weeks, but how and when you want to tackle the work is up to you. To be considered, you must be based in the US, preferably in New England. Applicants outside of the US will not be considered.

Required Skills/Experience:

  • 3 years development experience (preferably in an agency or production environment)
  • Experience chopping up Photoshop or Sketch layouts
  • HTML5: You care about semantic markup, you use section-level headings, and the document outliner is in your toolkit
