Happy Prime is hiring a WordPress developer.

Who we are

Happy Prime is a strategic web agency that looks for opportunities to do good work with good people. We welcome new ideas. We believe in open source software. We believe in sharing work and helping others do the same.

How we work

Happy Prime is a small team that enjoys collaborating with each other as much as possible.

There are often several projects running at once and each has a mix of individual involvement. One project may involve everyone, another may temporarily be the responsibility of one person.

We value a low pressure environment and approach work with a healthy pace.

We meet together at least twice a week over video to work through blockers and adjust priorities. We have ongoing chats for daily communication in Slack. We rarely use email.

What we do

Happy Prime builds websites and online tools for small and large organizations. We maintain relationships and provide ongoing support and hosting for many of our clients.

Most of the work we do is centered around WordPress. Our goal is always to create accessible, secure, and performant web experiences. We enjoy working with clients to find the right strategic answer rather than just any answer.
