WordPress Engineer - m/f

Place of employment: Zagreb, Croatia
Application due date: Open until filled
Type of employment: Full time job

WE’RE HIRING A WORDPRESS ENGINEER

QUICK FAQ BEFORE WE JUMP TO THE MAIN PART:
Will you be doing any front-end? Absolutely not - we have a separate front-end team you’ll collaborate with, but you won’t be required to do anything front-related.
How important is the knowledge of PHP? The more you know, the better.
Can you work remotely? Not really - solving problems and sharing the know-how is much simpler when we’re together at the office. We can easily organize remote work for a couple days a month, but full-time remote is something we can’t offer at this time.
How much money are we talking about? Between 12 500 and 17 500 HRK (gross salary).
