Junior developer

32-40 hours a week
Wijchen, the Netherlands

At Yoast, we are looking for an ambitious Junior developer who wants to develop his / her skills and help us grow our rapidly expanding plugin business, as well as build great apps and tools in the field of website optimization. Are you a fast learner? 

We’re looking for a fast learner who is passionate about development and Open Source. For this position professional and intellectual capacities at the higher professional education or academic level are required (HBO/WO).

Since we’re working with WordPress a lot, we use PHP and JavaScript in all of our products. However, if you speak any other web language (i.e. Ruby/Python/Java) and you don’t have a problem with learning PHP, we’re open to that as well.

Besides JavaScript, PHP and WordPress we use git, GitHub, PHPUnit, Grunt.JS, GlotPress, HTML and CSS (SASS). If any of this is new to you, that’s fine. We’re looking for fast learners who can pick up new technologies quickly.

We’d prefer you speak Dutch and English. We would expect you to work out of our office in Wijchen, NL (near Nijmegen). Submitting a motivation letter is a required part of the procedure.

The application process consists of three parts: an introductory job interview, a practical interview, and a final meeting. These steps might be divided over multiple days. A social media screening might be part of the procedure.

What we're offering

  • A chance to work at one of the most reputable SEO companies in the world (7.5 million users!).
  • A young, fast-growing company that wants to seize opportunities with you.
  • A pleasant, challenging and innovative work atmosphere in Wijchen

Besides that, we do a lot of cool stuff together, like our annual LEGO building days. But most importantly, we offer an innovative learning environment.
