Job type: Full-time

Category: Design


Hi-de-ho stranger. Biteable here. Let’s be friends. We need a fabulous new someone in our life to write Wordpress code and make our site ba-ba-beautiful. We’re friendly and flexible. And we totally understand if you come complete with kids, pets, side-hustles, and other #adulting stuff.

All about you

You Wordpress with finesse. Some people make an awful mess when they write code for the ‘press. This isn’t you. You’re an artisan. You write code with elegance. And you’ve got years of exquisite, custom Wordpress builds to back it up.

Design is your superpower. While you’re great at coding widgets and pages, your passion is for making them stunning. You’re a whizz at translating brand guidelines into beautiful things. And you’re comfortable sipping lattes with studio and design teams.

You know Timber isn’t just for lumberjacks. And you know how to use it when expanding custom themes.

You know your way around Javascript ecosystems. Like Gulp. Or other ones that aren’t named here ‘cause no one briefed the copywriter.

You’ve got the skills. In PHP and Javascript, that is. And if you haven’t already, you’re into learning Typescript.

You say ‘yes’ to CSS. You don’t brag about it, but you’ve received plenty of compliments for your CSS skills.

You’re a Git. But, in a good way. You’ve used Git and Github so much that it feels like a second home.

You know what AWS is. And you’ve probably deployed Wordpress on it. If you haven’t, you’re open to learning.

You’re most of the above. But not necessarily all. You can feel in your tummy if this is the right job for you.

You’re committed to learning. You love filling your head with new stuff and taking on new projects that expand your horizons.

All about the role

You’ll manage your own schedule. While you’ll need to maintain regular work hours (for the benefit of your team), you’ll be free to lay your day out the way you like it. 

Need to get the kids from school or take your granny to the shops? No problem. And you can work from wherever you want, be that your kitchen or one of our offices.

You’ll play a valuable role. You’ll lead on code and graphic design for the Biteable Wordpress site. You’ll work closely with our product designers to synchronize design with our product site.

You’ll work collaboratively with the marketing and content teams. Together, you’ll roll out content and functionalities that wow users and boost conversions.

You’ll share code ownership with your playmates in the development team. Together, you’ll maintain a robust code review process and troubleshoot any thorny issues that crop up from time-to-time.

All about us

We are Biteable, a tech start-up that makes (jaw-dropping) videos possible for everyone. We stand apart in our market thanks to our dedication to studio-quality content and our passion for simplicity.

Since our launch in 2014 we’ve:

  • Created a community of over 5 million users
  • Rendered 9.6 million videos
  • Raised $3.9 million in venture capital

We’re growing fast and have offices in Melbourne and Hobart, Australia, with remote team members scattered around the world. We are informal, structurally flat, and fun to work with.

All about our culture

We are committed to the happiness of our team. We welcome people of different backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives. We like it when everyone feels supported and free to create.

Our team members genuinely care about each other and define themselves as rigorous, respectful, open, supportive, honest, and egoless. Here are a few quotes that we didn’t make up:

“I’m thankful for the flexibility Biteable gives me around my family commitments. I really like that my team is open to new ideas and processes. And I enjoy that I get to work on a variety of problems with a mix of people with diverse areas of expertise.”

“The development team is a great group of people. They’re smart and interested in doing high-quality work, but foster a social and supportive atmosphere, too.”

“Biteable's team of smart, funny, engaged and caring people makes my work here enjoyable, every day. Being close to decisions and decision-makers helps me make an impact on our work.”

How to apply

We want you to start soon, so our application process is quick. To apply, dispatch your CV, portfolio, and a short cover letter about why you and Biteable fit together like Matt Mullenweg and Mike Little.

We’ll review it and get back to you quick smart. We’ll then do two rounds of informal interviews. If it feels right for all of us, you’ll be on board faster than you can say ‘third-party plugin’.
