We are looking for a PHP developer with WordPress experience.

Requirements:
- PHP experience
- WordPress experience
- you must be able to find your way around an unknown third-party codebase - integrating products from different vendors is a major part of the job
- you should be able to set up your local server (use of Varying Vagrant Vagrants is recommended if you are on Windows - we can help you with that)
- LESS or SCSS experience with good knowledge of current best practices
- (recommended) shell experience
- (optional) WP CLI

Other requirements:
- self-motivated
- willingness to solve problems by yourself
- desire to improve your skills
- preferably Linux or Mac based - you will need to use a VM if you are on Windows
- you need to follow common coding conventions and standards
- you have to be able to work as a part of a team
- excellent command of English
- anticipate risks and technical challenges
- follow instructions and accommodate yourself to our existing development workflow

How to apply?
Send us the following:
- samples from your recent work (link to your portfolio + a code sample)
- tell us why you’re passionate about the sample you sent us
- timezone or location (for scheduling purposes)
- preferred working hours and availability
- state your experience with each of the skills above
- state if you can set up a local server by yourself and what OS you use

Finally,
We would conduct an interview and the best candidates will be required to complete a short task (2-3 hours) based on a specification that we’ll provide. The completion of the test task will not require knowledge of our current products and we will help you to set up a suitable development environment.

We understand that this requires a little bit of time from you upfront, but we will look seriously at all applicants that take the time to respond with the above.
