Web Engineer

We’re looking for an experienced web engineer who likes to build high-end enterprise products.
Web Engineer
Zagreb, Varaždin, Ljubljana, Podgorica, Remote

Who are we

We’re a compact, but efficient WordPress team of 8 members. We work with many web technologies, but WordPress comes first. With the new Gutenberg editor, we are using React more often in our workflow. We also use PHP for our backend-related things. Depending on the projects, we also need to figure out why our servers aren’t working as they should be. So backend, frontend + servers = Web engineer. We often collaborate with DevOps, designers, and the JS team.

Did we mention our many unique open-source projects? One such example is the eightshift-boilerplate. It’s our way of handling the new editor. Working with such tools is awesome because you’re always learning new things. From using the latest React goodies to writing unit tests in PHP. It’s a very dynamic environment. In order to keep up to date with all the fast changes in the web industry these days, we have standups once a week, where we share things we learned with the rest of the team. Our other non-work related activities include having remote or live coffee breaks, and team dinners once a month.

Who are we looking for?

  • good knowledge of HTML, CSS, JavaScript
