Wanted Junior backend developer - WordPress
BACK-END WITH QUALITY-ORIENTED MIND
Full time 38h/week
EPIC is looking for a passionate experienced Back-End Web Developer to join the ranks of other like-minded pixel lovers.
Do you get excited by the idea of making great idea come to life? Figuring out clever and creative solutions to make our websites run smoothly ? Then you might want to learn more about what we have to offer…
Who you are
Back-end is the keystone of all of our productions. While hidden (when it works) it’s the glue that keeps everything together.
We’re not just looking for a coding monkey but someone capable of bringing a real expertise and fresh concepts on the table. Someone that strives to produce great, clean, understandable code (as little as possible because the best code is no code at all). Someone who takes ownership of their projects and makes sure that their quality is top notch and on time.
And last but not least… no matter how unique and gifted you are, you are a team player and you have fun building things with other smart fellows.
You are Wise, Mighty, Visionary.
You will be working on the most hidden but critical part of the agency’s projects: the backend. Your skills and thirst for constant improvement will be instrumental in bringing our projects to life.
- Knowledge of PHP 7+, SQL, git.
- Some experience with WordPress and its most used plugins (ACF, Polylang, …).
- Experience with HTML, (modern) JS, CSS.
- Knowledge of some scripting language and server administration is a plus.
- (Very) comfortable with CLI.
- Curious and fast learner.
- Analytical mind and user-centric approach.
- Able to work in-house in Belgium (we’ll provide beers and waffles) and speak English or French fluently.
Your daily job
You take part in daily meetings with the team and help find solutions to integrate content cleanly. You communicate and share your knowledge. You help structuring the components with the front-ends and expose the data available in a user-friendly way. Together with your peers, you find creative alternatives to meet the most demanding client’s constraints and craziest designers’ fantasies. You listen a lot and understand client’s business challenges. You think user, content, efficiency first. You apply coding best practices and learn to write clean, modular and DRY code (you know what DRY means, right?).
Your work involves a lot of discussions with your technical director but also with clients and the community.
A winning personality and graciousness is a prerequisite for the job.
What we really care about
For this position, a proven experience with WordPress is required. But more than that, we need someone who is a fast learner, always eager to contribute and to improve their skills.
At EPIC, no one works alone, ever.
As is to be expected, decisions are made as a result of frank discussions with the technical director and with the team. Keywords of the decision process are: knowledge sharing, astute prioritization and continuous empathy.
You not only feel responsible for your work, but you are capable of learning from your team members, empowering your ideas with theirs and listening to their opinions.
You are proactive, you are here to improve our processes by contributing actively, make things move forward and you continually ask yourself how to fix broken things instead of waiting to be served.
At EPIC, we enjoy working in a friendly atmosphere and we’re very selective about the people we recruit. Hopefully you’ll be a good match and a nice addition to the team.
There are 20 of us.
Some of us love foosball, others hunt Pokémon, photograph the trembling grasses at dawn, breed chickens in their garden, walk in socks in the office, run up and down the Alps or practice yoga every Thursday…
They are now part of your life, they talk to you not only at the coffee machine, they know you and make you a better person.
