We’re looking to welcome a motivated junior developer to our growing team in a full-time position, with a focus around WordPress websites.

These skills are not necessary but advantageous and we also actively encourage training and learning.

  • Basic understanding of the importance of Information Security and best practices for developing secure applications and websites.
