Jonroc: Senior Level Creative Web Designer/Developer at Jonroc (Richmond, VA) (allows remote) (Richmond, VA)
Posted: Oct 3, 2020
- If you’re looking for a safe and cushy job at a WordPress mill or like plain and boring business websites that never change and are forgotten the minute after a visitor has left, please move onto the next job posting.
- If you feel you need a “job” we may not be a good fit.
- If you're not a wizard at creating WordPress templates and plugins from scratch then you'll need to brush up on that before applying.
We’re looking for creative, and self-energized individuals to partner with us bring life and energy into our operation so we can conquer the world (or at least a small part of it, )
Jonroc LLC is a web design and online marketing agency serving the entire US. We develop custom-built WP themes, plugins, and HTML5 websites for our clients. Our end goal is to be a world leader in creating interactive, cutting-edge, websites that push the limits of design and animation.
As we work towards the goal of building a reputation for creating the world's most unique and interactive websites we take on “Bread and Butter” business websites that are typically built using WordPress or straight in HTML5. The fact is that until we’re known primarily as a unique and “out of the box” web design agency, we have to build some basic business websites to pay the bills. However, we always give each client a website that is created especially for them and is optimized to convert as many visitors to leads or sales as their budget allows. So we'll add in mini-out of the box animations or graphic designs to business's websites as they allow, like this website: https://lakeside.vet/
What Jonroc Brings to the Table
We bring our brand and reputation to the table with a strong drive for both company and employee growth. Since 2011 we’ve been honing in on our game and positioning ourselves to take our small agency to the next level. We’ve been building out an industry-leading marketing system to generate endless leads and create rapid growth for us (and you!). It's time to present the world with the new, faster, cutting edge version of Jonroc. With your help, we’re sure to get there in record time.
