At Pixels we like to build complex Websites, Online Stores and Web Applications. We use WordPress for our Website and Online Stores and our Web Applications are usually React or Node based. We have a number of Headless WordPress projects using a Next.js based frontend, and we are working to move towards this direction with Website projects (and eventually Online Stores) in the future. Our projects often involve integrations which tend to be PHP based.

We are looking for a Senior Developer to join our team to create outstanding digital user experiences for our clients and our own internal projects. The Developer’s responsibilities include programming, reviewing colleagues’ work, contributing to the continual development of our internal tools and processes, and supporting the design team with technical advice.

Our developers usually work on projects in pairs, so you’ve always got someone to bounce ideas off. They have weekly dev talks to share and learn from each other and we encourage everyone to suggest and contribute to improvements in how we work. We believe high-quality, beautiful code is just as important as a beautiful design.

A successful Senior Developer is able to consistently produce high quality work, provide supported feedback to their colleagues, help develop the tools and systems we use, help develop the development team, be communicative with the rest of the team, be skilled in problem solving and logic, and be a fun part of the Pixels team.

Salary range: 3787 – 4290 € / month
