Outhire had a hard deadline for launching their new app and job portal but their WordPress site wasn't finished. A new job recruitment service, they needed to stick to a budget and it was disappearing near launch. Outhire had already reached out to eager candidates and companies, anticipation was growing. Their website was designed in Figma but the WordPress site was barely set up.
After reviewing the state of the site, it was determined a rebuild would be quicker than picking up where the last contractor left off. Due to their popularity and wide use, WordPress sites are common; but, what's not common is well-built WordPress sites. A majority of WordPress websites are designed with too many plugins and/or they use unneeded themes like Astra. When developing for minimal bloat, it's usually quicker to build a site from the ground-up versus working on an existing one. A site that's built lean and loads fast will have higher conversion rates and will make mobile users smile.
With a couple days until launch, I set to work staging a fresh install of WordPress and building out the website in Elementor, using the Figma designs and partially designed site as reference. Elementor is the most popular site builder for WordPress and also extremely fast to design and develop in. Two days and twenty-some pages later, the site was rebuilt and ready for all devices. Switching gears to web IT, I migrated the site to Cloudways for hosting and pointed the domain in time for launch.
