Junior WordPress Developer

Frantic is a Helsinki-based digital consultancy that develops its clients’ business through design, technology, data, and agile leadership. Our work culture is relaxed and our hierarchy low. We do every project with all our heart and with our clients and their end-users in mind. Our work is based on problem-solving and collaboration in diverse teams, without forgetting the peer support of our colleagues. We have been at the forefront of digital for well over 20 years, and our clients include several of Finland's leading and largest organizations from various industries.

What we're looking for

Your role will be shaped by your own skills and passions. In addition, you will be able to challenge yourself in other technical areas as well. Your primary responsibilities will include the development of modern and demanding digital services utilizing WordPress together with the team. In your work, you will also utilize other customer-specific technologies, and you’re not afraid to take up the challenge even when Contentful and Gatsby, for example, would be a better platform for the solution. You get to influence the choices made by the team, always supported by your own team and Frantic's other professionals.

We like

  • To build services with a modern open source stack, primarily over Amazon and Google infrastructures
  • To use the most suitable tools for the client’s business
  • To work closely in project teams in cooperation with our clients
  • Modular content management solutions in WordPress and Contentful environments
  • Accessible and structured HTML and CSS
  • React, Angular and Vue JavaScript software frameworks
  • To have fun while we work
  • To build and nurture a work culture that’s inclusive, equal, and diverse

We would like you to have

  • Experience in functional WordPress implementations and strong knowledge of PHP and MySQL
  • Experience in JavaScript programming and knowledge of modern JavaScript frameworks
  • Experience in Git version control
  • Self-initiative and teamwork skills
  • Good communication skills in both Finnish and English

We offer you

  • Comprehensive occupational health care
  • Lunch benefit
  • Flexibility with work hours, locations (see Frantic Remote Office), as well as different life stages and situations
  • ePassi Flex balance that you can use for sports, culture, wellbeing, or commuting according to your choosing
  • A cozy workspace with snacks, top-quality coffee, tea and refreshments. In the times of Covid-19 we work remotely, and offer you the opportunity to have equipment at your home office to support good ergonomics (e.g. work chair, electric desk, screen etc.)
  • Versatile opportunities to develop your own skills according to your own interests, for example, conferences, trainings, online courses, or certifications. Learning and development are supported by Frantic's competence communities
  • A close-knit community of fun-loving colleagues
