Who are we?

We are The Motley Fool, a purpose-driven financial information and services firm with nearly 30 years of experience focused on making the world smarter, happier, and richer. But what does that even mean?! It means we’re helping Fools (always with a capital “F”) demystify the world of finance, beat the stock market, and achieve personal wealth and happiness through our products and services.

The Motley Fool is firmly committed to diversity, inclusion, and equity. We are a motley group of overachievers that have built a culture of trust founded on Foolishness, fun, and a commitment to making the world smarter, happier and richer. However you identify or whatever winding road has led you to us, please don't hesitate to apply if the description above leaves you thinking, "Hey! I could do that!"

What does this team do?

This role will be reporting into the People Team, and specifically, the Recruiting Team. The Recruiting Team is charged with recruiting new talent and managing the interview and onboarding processes to ensure each new recruit has a seamless and Foolish experience. Our new careers page will help us to maintain a smooth recruiting process, so we need it to be awesome. That’s where you come in!

What would you do in this role?

We’re looking to partner with a talented WordPress Developer to build out our careers page using our existing content, and seamlessly integrate it with our ATS (Applicant Tracking System). After this project, we would like to be able to manage this page on our own and make small edits to the content when needed, so developing an easy-to-use WordPress theme will be key here!

But What Would You Actually Do in this role?

  • Work closely with the Recruiting Team to understand specific requirements and objectives for the career site.
  • Customize a WordPress theme or build a WordPress site from scratch, depending on project needs.
  • Integrate necessary plugins and functionalities, such as job posting modules, applicant tracking system, and SEO tools.
  • Ensure cross-browser compatibility and optimize for speed and performance.
  • Implement security best practices to protect site data and enhance site integrity.
  • Provide training to relevant internal teams on managing and updating the career site.
  • Address any technical or design issues in a timely manner during and after the launch.

Compensation:

Our targeted compensation for this role is between $65 and $80 per hour depending on experience.
