A great remote job opportunity working 5 months on a Magento 1 to Magento 2 Commerce re-platform for a large international women's fashion store. I am part of a large (+20) professional team of in-house and external Magento developers, business analysts, UX specialists and testers. This requires both good development - and communication skills (communication is mostly done via Skype, Slack and Jira). The front-end requirements and designs are very detailed and well thought out, which requires eye for detail. The project uses modern front-end tooling and frameworks like Webpack, Gulp, Sass, ES6, Handlebars and React. In addition to the day to day front-end development I also work as consultant, advising the organisation about a short and long-term webperformance strategy.
We took over management of Moon audio and helped solve several issues they were having with there Magento Commerce Build. There were many performance issues caused by their extensions and themes. Though they were not high on the customization scale they had enough wrong that it was wreaking havoc on the cache. After our fixes, page loads went from 4-5 second down to less than 400ms. Additionally, we helped stabilize their entire system and resulting in a record month of sales this last May.
WebP is the Next-Gen image file format developed by Google and is also recommended by Google's own performance audit tool "Lighthouse". With WebP, it is possible to reduce image file sizes significantly, with same or almost same quality. Smaller image file sizes mean: Faster load times & better performance -> better rankings & user experience -> more sales! Not only, but especially mobile users using slow 2G/3G connections will be grateful and benefit highly from this improvement.
With our Extension WebP images can now be added to any Magento 2 store easily, with minimum effort & low cost.
