Skillcrush is on the hunt for an experienced Back-End Developer to join our team!
Our Director of Engineering will be on leave this fall and we’re looking for a back-end developer to help us develop new features and iterate on the Skillcrush product while she’s away.
This is a full-time, seven month contract to start but we would love to find someone with an interest in joining our team permanently.
The Product Development team at Skillcrush is made up of designers, developers, video editors, and curriculum writers who collaborate with every team to support students as they transform their careers by learning new digital skills.
As a Back-End Developer, you will first and foremost be responsible for creating and maintaining custom WordPress plugins and themes.
You’re a good fit for this role if you have a strong understanding of object-oriented PHP, WordPress plugins, and test-driven development. You should also have experience putting this knowledge to work on a commercial development team. (If it was a Product Development team, even better!)
Additional DevOps skills—such as continuous integration, scalability, server & system administration, security, and automation—are preferred but not required.
This a mid-level role not suitable for junior developers.
Skillcrush is a rapidly growing online tech education company that offers online classes on a variety of technological topics.
At Skillcrush, we have built an open & collaborative environment. We hire the people we want to work with, but who also think differently than us and challenge the status quo. We empower people, giving the support and autonomy needed to succeed. We embrace data to make decisions and overcome obstacles. We do what we do well, but we’re always looking to do it better.
Skillcrush is an equal opportunity employer and evaluates applicants regardless of an individual’s age, race, color, gender, religion, national origin (or current homebase), sexual orientation, disability, veteran status, family status, timezone, geography, musical preferences or college football allegiances. We think a diverse team builds a better product!
