Justin Farr Résumé

Hi, I’m Justin Farr and I think I might be a GREAT fit for the Virtual Junior WordPress Developer position in Fort Collins, Colorado.

Here’s Why…

I’ve been building WordPress websites for businesses of all sizes since 2009.

Most of the time I work remotely. I’ve worked from all kinds of different places: home, co-working spaces, coffee shops, hotels, libraries & parks.

I’ve even tried to work from a beach before, but believe me, is not as easy as it looks in pictures!

(heat + sand + wind + saltwater = bad environment for my laptop)

I’m used to working with people and teams located in different time zones when needed.

For example, I’ve built websites and managed complex projects with teams in India, Poland, China, Russia, Thailand and more.

Not to mention all the US time zones too.

I currently manage around 20 websites and here are a few of the things I do for them:

  • Keep everything backed up (in at least 2 different places)
  • Update themes
  • Update plugins
  • Content updates and additions when requested
  • Run systems to keep everything safe & protected
  • Miscellaneous troubleshooting

When I build new websites for clients, here’s how I typically serve them:

  • Keyword research
  • Competitor & industry research
  • SEO planning
  • Hosting & configuration
  • Website design (and other Graphic Design)
  • Website development (usually customizing existing WP themes)
  • Foundational SEO
  • Setting up & installing Google Analytics
  • SEO consulting
  • Small AdWords Campaigns
  • Google Apps setup (mostly email accounts)
  • Project Managing any complex outsourced solutions

I have a good understanding of HTML & CSS and frequently tap into those to make fine tuned adjustments or create customized solutions.

I’ve been self-taught up to this point, however, I’m making plans to take Full-Stack development courses in order to take what I enjoy doing to the next level.

I’m good at problem-solving and I’m also teachable and ready to learn new things.

Here are a few of the services, skills, and tools I use on a regular basis:
