WordPress Developer (Lead, Senior)
Full-time / Remote
We are looking for talented WordPress developers to join our small, ambitious team.
What will you be working on?
We have several popular WordPress products used by thousands of customers, and we’re looking for someone to join our team and help us improve our current workflow but also develop new products and launch them.
Some themes require major updates, so your experience using modern methods and tools will be highly needed.
We also need help building separate websites for some of our major products (e.g. Recipe Card Blocks) and new plugins to extend the functionality of our themes (think of a plugin with Elementor templates and additional modules). You will be the technical lead for one of these major projects.
How will you get there?
We’d start with a short 2-week trial when you’ll identify some things that can be improved and start improving them immediately.
In other words, we’re looking for someone who can teach us something & take our team to the next technical level.
