Graebel Van Lines is searching for a Front End Web Developer to join our Marketing team. This person is responsible for building new and supporting existing front-end development of Graebelmoving.com. The website’s main focus is to generate leads to our sales team via phone call or web form submission, and the secondary focus is to assist other non-sales departments (i.e. Recruiting, Collections). This website is built on the WordPress CMS, but recent web pages have been built outside of the WordPress CMS (i.e. using AngularJS) in hopes of increasing conversion rates of site visitors to leads. We may continue using WordPress as our CMS or the decision may be made to move to Sitecore CMS, whereas, this person will assist in the relaunch. Additionally, this person will help to launch a second website, Optim.com, which will focus on our workspace area of our business. This is a new position. Current responsibilities are managed by an external web development team.
