Development 32-40 hours a week Wijchen, NL or hybrid

We’re looking for a WordPress developer with at least two years of experience. We work with PHP (5.6 in our plugins, 7.1+ on and JavaScript (React/Redux and node). We also use git, GitHub, PHPUnit, Visual Studio Code, and we have created our own development environment based on Docker (maintained by DevOps). But, we are always in search of improvements and optimizations. So, this list will probably already be out of date by the time you start working here.

If you don’t have experience with JavaScript, no problem! We are primarily looking for someone who understands WordPress and WooCommerce. Someone who’s worked with those platforms and knows them in and out.

What do we expect of you?

  • You are a WordPress and WooCommerce theme and plugin developer. 
  • You can dream in HTML, CSS, and WordPress code.
  • You welcome new ideas and come up with solutions. 
  • Sharing knowledge and creating products in a team make you happy. 
  • You can quickly get familiar with new codebases and frameworks. 
  • You take web development seriously, and you want to know all about it. 
  • You have an academic level of thinking.
  • You live in the UTC -1, UTC, UTC 1, UTC 2, or UTC 3 time zone. 

Knowledge and understanding of programming principles like SOLID and TDD are a big PLUS. 

It would be super nice if

  • You have contributed to WordPress and WooCommerce patches. 
  • You have contributed to other Open Source projects. 
  • You maintain your own WordPress site.
  • You have developed Gutenberg blocks. 

What we offer

  • A challenging job in a fast-growing, dynamic, ambitious, and international atmosphere.
  • Working at a company that makes a significant impact on the web.
  • 25 vacation days (based on 40 hours). In addition, you’ll get five volunteer days which you can spend helping out at the local soccer club, for example. Or to supervise a school trip of one of your children.
  • A monthly salary between €2300 and €4000 depending on your experience, based on a 40 hour work week.
  • A bonus scheme.
  • You’ll be able to spend 10% of your salary on education.
  • A great pension plan, which is fully paid by Yoast.
  • Opportunity to exercise and stay fit! We have our own gym and a personal trainer!
  • A really fun (slightly crazy) company culture with lots and lots of team building activities. The know-your-colleagues-quiz, lots of celebrations and LEGO-building days.
  • The opportunity to learn a lot in a short time, at one of the leading SEO companies.


The application process consists of three, maybe four, parts: an introductory job interview, one or two practical interviews, and a final meeting. These steps might take place on different days. A social media screening might be part of the procedure. Note: only applications with a cover letter will be considered.
