Senior PHP/WordPress Developer

We are not urgently hiring for this role, but are always eager to get to know promising Developer candidates. If you’re interested in being considered for this position, please submit an application below.

Viget is an independent digital agency that has been branding, designing, and building digital products and platforms since 1999. Our culture is ideal for lifelong learners seeking a variety of meaningful work, supportive collaboration with positive teammates, and a healthy work/life balance. We work from four sweet (hybrid) and locations throughout the U.S., and utilize a proven cadence of virtual and in-person meetings and retreats to build comradery and stay connected. We love our team.

If you join our industry-leading development team as a Senior PHP/WordPress Developer, you can expect to work on projects that will challenge you to learn and grow as a developer. You’ll be working alongside project managers, user experience designers, and other developers to collaborate with our clients from major brands to world-changing nonprofits to emerging startups and tech leaders. Viget == variety.

Our PHP/WordPress Developers work independently or alongside other developers to create rich and engaging content-driven sites and applications. As a PHP/WordPress Developer, you will be responsible for the configuration, architecture, custom development, and support of WordPress sites developed by you and the Platform Development team. You will frequently work with a UI developer who is responsible for the visual and interactive layer of the site. PHP proficiency is a must and candidates should have experience working with WordPress (experience with other platforms, like Craft, is a plus) and utilize modern PHP best practices, like dependency management with Composer and unit testing.

Senior developers at Viget have the experience needed to be leaders on their projects, mentors to others, and influencers within the company. While continuing to deepen their individual expertise, they need to be equally confident leading a pairing session with another developer, collaborating with a project manager on the timeline and features for a project, and holding their own in a client meeting. Senior developers provide vision and stability on the complex technical projects they help lead.
