Job Description

PHP and JavaScript WordPress Plugin Developer

Salary: competitive and depends on experience

Location: We’re based in Wales, UK, but this job is also open to freelancer developers around the world!

Start date: ASAP

We have an exciting opportunity for a Senior Web Developer with excellent PHP and/or JS and ideally WordPress experience to join a small team to help develop further one of the world’s fastest growing and most-installed WordPress plugins, UpdraftPlus (see www.updraftplus.com) .

Having been downloaded 6 million times and is active on over 1 million websites, the company’s product is also the highest rated of its kind, and also the most installed plugin owned by a UK company.

You will play a leading role in the company’s aim to continue to be the dominant player in WP backup plugins (with PHP) and also to help develop our new JavaScript-based WordPress remote site management plugin called UpdraftCentral.

You’d be working together with the company director who is also the software architect together with a small team of others involved in development and marketing.

Responsibilities breakdown

Our needs divide into the following areas, and your exact responsibilities will depend on your experience, how this fits with other members of the team and subject to discussion and agreement!

Experience with the below is required:

  1. PHP – you’d be coding UpdraftPlus or WP Optimize, plus fragments for managing the website, plus UpdraftCentral
  2. WordPress plugin development – ideally you’ll have a bit of experience of this, but if not a willingness to learn
  3. JavaScript (nice but not necessary) – a smaller part of UpdraftPlus, but much bigger part of UpdraftCentral.
  4. GitHub / GitLab / Git – nice to have, but can be learnt quickly by good developers used to alternatives like SVN.
