Senior PHP Engineer @ Human Made

Human Made is looking for Senior PHP engineers to work on big media and enterprise projects.

Human Made is looking for Senior PHP Engineers to work on enterprise-level WordPress projects. You’ll architect, build, and deliver complex client projects for large enterprise and publishing clients.

As a senior engineer, you’ll be expected to be able to design and architect complex sites, taking them from start to finish. Strong communication skills are a must, both for working with your team and communicating with clients directly when needed. You’ll be expected to own the project, and lead other engineers on your team. This includes making pragmatic decisions, especially when working with new concepts and technologies.

You should have 2+ years experience working in a senior capacity on PHP projects. Experience with WordPress is a plus, but not required.

Human Made is a fully remote company, which means that all of our employees need a unique set of skills to function as part of the team. You should be able to work independently, to prioritise your tasks, be able to make decisions, and feel comfortable asking questions when needed. You should be inquisitive and open to learning new things and looking at the world in new ways. You should be someone who looks for ways to balance their work with the rest of their life.

We are one of 13 WordPress.com VIP Service Partners. We work with big names in publishing and in enterprise, including Standard Chartered, News UK, Greenpeace, Unison, Sony, PayPal, and Airbnb.

We offer great benefits, including a remote work allowance, a minimum of 28 days paid holiday, 52 weeks parental leave, and a conference and training budget. You’ll also meet up with the rest of the company at our annual retreat. In the past, these have taken place in the UK, Norway, Bulgaria, Spain, and Slovakia. You can read more about working at Human Made in our company handbook.

Our team consists of 50+ people across 5 continents. Although we have offices in the UK and Australia, the majority of the company works fully remotely. On the whole, you’ll be able to work when you want and where you want.
