Wordpress Developer

Are you a ninja Wordpress developer and a creative problem solver?  Can you create Wordpress plugins, themes, and templates — plus integrate with other 3rd party services via the Wordpress REST API?  Do you have the vision to transform a basic sketch or wireframe into a digital consumer experience?  Can you scale Wordpress to handle heavy viral traffic?
