Human Made is looking for a Senior Web Engineer with WordPress experience to join its engineering team. This is a remote position but you should be located in the Europe, Middle-East or Africa region (EMEA). Please see our other job openings for jobs in other regions.

Engineers at Human Made work on enterprise-level projects for clients across the globe.

You will have the opportunity to meet the rest of the company at our annual company meetup, and with members of the rest of your team at least once a year. We care about good communication and you should be able to prioritise your work and meet deadlines, discussing any problems with the team along the way.
