Web Engineer

  • Anywhere (100% Remote) Only
  • Human Made
Job Description:


Human Made is looking for Web Engineers with WordPress experience to join its engineering team. This is a remote position - you can be based anywhere in the world.

Engineers at Human Made work on enterprise-level projects for clients across the globe. We deliver digital experiences through our platform Altis DXP. Past and current clients include big media agencies, financial organisations, charities and not-for-profits, and other enterprise companies. You will be working on technically-complex client projects with a team of experienced Engineers and Project Managers from around the world.

Your experience should include building custom solutions, understanding and incorporating security practices, and considering performance implications. You should also have knowledge of modern web technologies and best practices, including semantic HTML and modern CSS. You need to have strong experience building either PHP or JavaScript applications, and will be expected to skill up to a similar level in the other language. You should also have a solid understanding of MySQL and the considerations of database-driven applications, or be expected to get those skills on the role.

As Human Made develops large-scale WordPress sites, WordPress experience is preferred, but not essential. If you do not have WordPress experience you will be expected to gain and develop this on the job.

You should be familiar with the tools required for engineering projects. This includes a good understanding of Git, conflict resolution, local development environments, PHP configuration, following coding standards and general computer maintenance and security. You should be willing to adapt to the established processes in Human Made.

The full job description for a Web Engineer at Human Made can be read in our company handbook.
