Camna LLC is a web development firm based out of Fredericksburg, VA. Our small team of experienced developers all work from home throughout the world. Our skills include both front-end and back-end development, and our projects range from building and/or supporting WordPress websites to full-scale app development. Similarly, our clients range from solopreneurs and small businesses to international companies with thousands of employees.

We are currently looking to add a talented frontend WordPress developer to our team. We need an individual who is self-motivated and disciplined and who thrives in a work-from-home environment, while also staying connected to and collaborating with an online team.

You should be experienced with both custom theme and plugin development.

Of equal importance, our team puts a very strong emphasis on stellar client relations, including fast response times and clear, concise written and verbal communication. We strive to put our clients first and go the extra mile, and we are looking for candidates who will do the same. In addition, we are working hard to establish strong process flows, documentation, and admin procedures, so organizational/admin skills are certainly a bonus.
