We’re looking for a WordPress developer to maintain the Silktide websites and to help us work on a range of exciting projects. This role will suit someone with previous WordPress experience who is eager to work for a fast-growing SaaS company.

This is a remote-working role for United Kingdom residents only.

Overview

You’ll be working on Silktide’s website, the Silktide Index, and a range of other exciting tools. You’ll be proficient in HTML5, CSS, JavaScript, PHP and have extensive experience in creating WordPress projects. You’ll work to implement the vision of our design team.

Who are Silktide?

Silktide’s mission is to make the web better for everyone.

We make software to test and improve websites. Organizations around the world use Silktide to help deliver great web experiences that are accessible to all.

Our customers include FORTUNE 500 companies, universities, governments, and web design agencies.

We cover almost every aspect of the web, including accessibility, marketing, content, and privacy. A big part of our work is helping people understand these complex areas in a way that works for them.

We are a 100% remote-working company, with an office in Derby, UK.

What we’re like

We heavily promote an open culture. Every member of our team keeps a Slack journal, to log their thoughts, work, and ideas. Everyone can read these. Want to know exactly what your CEO is working on? Done.

Freedom is key to Silktide. We’ll give you the freedom to choose your work, your tech, your working hours, and of course, your location! We don’t clock in and out, in fact, we don’t check your hours. As long as your work is done, the rest is up to you.

We’re growing fast and need smart, ambitious, and trustworthy people to join our team.
