Senior Web Engineer

Job Description

At 10up, we classify developers as engineers because they’re more than just coders; they’re creative problem solvers who utilize web programming skills to innovate smart solutions for client challenges.

As a prominent digital agency, 10up works with a diverse range of clients, from innovative startups and impactful non-profits to industry giants like ESPN, Google, The New York Times Co., Microsoft, and The Nobel Prize Committee. For over 12 years, our team members, known as 10uppers, have been at the forefront of pushing the boundaries of web experiences. Join us as an engineer and contribute to building exciting projects with a highly skilled team.

As a contractor at 10up, you’ll enjoy flexible work schedules, as we have embraced remote work from the beginning, with team members spanning six continents and 40 countries.

What you’ll be doing:

  • Developing enterprise-level WordPress plugins and/or themes primarily using PHP and Gutenberg blocks in React.js.
  • Conducting code reviews.
  • Driving strategy and leading the back-end technical vision for large-scale projects.
  • Solving complex problems in simple yet elegant ways.
  • Ultimately, you’ll contribute to improving the web by crafting websites, apps, and tools that reach millions of online visitors every day.

About you:

  • You’re passionate about honing your skills in WordPress engineering and Gutenberg.
  • You have a portfolio of code. Share your best WordPress work on GitHub, and you won’t need to undergo live coding or whiteboard testing.
  • You’re comfortable communicating with clients and team members to articulate your ideas clearly.
  • You have extensive experience with Git workflows in back-end-focused web development.
  • You’re adept at debugging performance and caching issues.
  • You prefer remote work and excel at collaborating within a distributed team.

Join our team! If you’re enthusiastic about 10up’s mission and believe you have the potential to thrive in this role, even if you don’t meet every requirement, we encourage you to apply. We personally review every application and provide feedback to all candidates.
