Moonshiner is a web development company based in Vienna. We accompany our customers through the entire process of digital transformation. From innovation & digital strategy, user experience design, eCommerce and custom web solutions to building agile teams and digital units.
Since 2015 we have been supporting innovative companies in building, improving and scaling digital products and transforming existing platforms into high-performance systems that help our customers achieve their business goals.

Our goal is to have a positive business impact for our customers.

Operational excellence is our aim.

About the Job:

WordPress Development here at Moonshiner is part of our solution design team. We work on different projects where WordPress serves as a content provider. Currently there are 2 WordPress developers employed who work on projects with various levels of complexity. We are not only doing websites with WordPress, we rather integrate it as part of our architectures.

The Technology you will be working with:

  • You will work on WordPress Technologies such as PHP 7, MySQL/MariaDB and the AJAX based JS used by WordPress.
  • You know about Gutenberg and understand it is wordpress’ take on visual website editing. If you know about Phase 2 or Phase 3 of the project you will impress us, if you know when phase 4 is coming you are dishonest.
  • You have worked with plugins for internationalization, ACF and the REST API. You understand the plugin structures and how to evaluate and write them.
  • As a WordPress Developer you are an allrounder. You will have fullstack tasks from Backend Processes to Plugin Development and Frontend Adaptations.
  • Work with stakeholders on frontend decisions and requirements.

During the projects you will be faced with challenges, so it is important that you ask for help when needed, communicate your opinions and fears actively and be fair to your colleagues. We don’t expect you to understand everything we do right away, nobody can transition with performing on the spot.

You will work on bugs caused by other people. You will find simple solutions for complex problems. You will go deep. You will learn from us and we will learn from you. Here are some things we’ve worked on recently that might give you a better sense of what you’ll be doing day to day:

  • A Web application needs additional CMS capabilities and the team decides WordPress can serve as a backend for those contents. You concept the User Management and responsibilities, check additional requirements, analyse the plugin market well aware that the less plugins used the less maintenance needed.
  • You use ACF for better Object Modelling and provide the contents via the JSON API for the team to request. You plan where Caching happens and execute with style.

About You:

You already have WordPress template and plugin development know how.

  • Quality code is important to you. You know that people will work with your code and you will be working with other people’s code. You should know how to balance your own high standards of code quality with the problems you are solving and external constraints like how time-sensitive it is or the impact it will have.
  • Solving problems is exciting to you. You are happy to work through difficult technical problems and to solve them in straight-forward ways. If you don’t know the answer immediately, you will be comfortable digging into the problem until you figure it out. You also know when it’s time to ask for assistance.

The development process is important. You have worked with Git before and did a commit already. You know how to tackle critiquing others code in a positive and productive way and receiving the same sort of feedback.

Communication is important to us and it should be to you too. You should value empathy and kindness and be able to articulate your ideas and feelings when writing or speaking.

Moonshiner is an equal opportunity employer. We extend equal opportunities to all individuals without regard to race, religion, colour, sex (including pregnancy, sexual orientation and gender identity), national origin, disability, or age.
