Senior Web Developer

Rapid City, SD ~ June 11, 2018


(Rapid City, SD)

Are you a programming wizard? Can you take pieces of code, break them down, rearrange them and turn them into a completely amazing webpage?  Do you live for coding PHP-based systems, HTML, CSS, and JavaScript and create digital works of art? Do you want the chance to program and use your Matrix-hacking skills for a company on a global scale? As a Senior Web Developer with Jedi-level experience, you’ll take design concepts and marketing challenges and turn them into actionable results that help our customers, dealers, distributors, and partners engage with us more easily and efficiently. While these tasks will typically involve coding PHP-based systems, HTML, CSS, and JavaScript (we mentioned this twice, hint hint), you might also work on integrating third party software with scripts, mobile app development, or assisting with IT automation.

So, what might a workday at Strider look like for an expert like yourself?  You might start off by making changes or advancements to a WordPress theme or plugins at the request of one of our fine International Distributors.  Maybe you’ll implement WordPress plugins or custom PHP code to support new business needs. Then you might move on to work with our marketing team on the best way to implement a layout for mobile compatibility across varying devices while keeping our desktop experience tip top.

If this sounds like you, we should talk.


Your web programming skills should be turned up to 11, and you should have a strong desire to understand our web infrastructure. You’ll also need to provide a superior product and customer experience. You’ll be responsible for many day-to-day web development, layout, and integration tasks as part of our marketing team.  Here’s what you absolutely need:

• A passion for what we do and who we are

• 3 or more years’ experience developing and managing websites

• Solid background in responsive HTML, CSS, and JavaScript (see how these popped up again?)

• Strong command of the PHP programming language

• Experience with version control and IDE-centered development

• Proficiency in Microsoft Office

• Knowledge and experience with Adobe Creative Suite including Photoshop, Illustrator, and Dreamweaver

• To make deadlines for projects (sometimes with tight schedules) and work well with different departments

• Excellent verbal and communication skills 

• Experience with search engine optimization (SEO) techniques

• Experience using web analytics packages (especially Google Analytics)

• The ability and desire to effectively communicate and work with a wide variety of people.

Beneficial Qualifications:

• Thriving in a fast-paced, ever-changing environment

• Being committed to an active lifestyle and exercise

• Dropping multiple pop-culture references with the rest of the marketing department throughout the day

• Speaking fluent Klingon or randomly speaking like a pirate (won’t get you the job, but let’s face it, that’s pretty cool).

Physical Demands:

• Must be able to lift, carry, and move items up to 30 lbs. 

• Must be able to sit or stand for extended periods of time using a phone, computer keyboard, and mouse.
