Web Engineer - WordPress (EMEA)
Human Made is looking for a Web Engineer with WordPress experience to join its engineering team. This is a remote position but you should be located in the Europe, Middle-East or Africa region (EMEA). Please see our other job openings for jobs in other regions.
Engineers at Human Made work on enterprise-level projects for clients across the globe. Past and current clients include big media agencies, financial organisations, charities and not-for-profits, and other enterprise companies. You will be working on technically-complex client projects with a team of experienced Engineers and Project Managers from around the world.
As Human Made develops large-scale WordPress sites, WordPress experience is preferred, but not essential. If you do not have WordPress experience you will be expected to gain and develop this on the job.
You should be familiar with the tools required for engineering projects. This includes a good understanding of Git, conflict resolution, local development environments, PHP configuration, following coding standards and general computer maintenance and security. You should be willing to adapt to the established processes in Human Made.
The full job description for a Web Engineer at Human Made can be read in our company handbook.
