Job Description

Hello, wizards of web development. If you have WordPress experience, you’re great at what you do, and you want to make a positive impact in the world… We want to talk to you about joining our team.

In this role, you’ll collaborate with our designers, producers and other developers to build great stuff — often in the form of WordPress websites (or things that integrate with WordPress sites), but also all sorts of other neat things as well.

If you’re a proactive problem solver, a tinkerer, a self-starter, and, when necessary, a search-stack-overflow-until-your-eyes-fall-out type of person, keep reading!


Some of the things you might do:

  • Collaborate with your teammates to create strategy, come up with new ideas and provide insight and expertise for our projects
  • Develop and implement new features and functionality for WordPress-based websites (and other non-WordPress things, too)
  • Establish and provide guidance for backend architecture
  • Build reusable code and libraries for future use
  • Ensure the technical feasibility of UI/UX designs
  • Optimize code for maximum speed and scalability

In order to be great at this job, here are some of the skills and attributes you’ll need to succeed:

  • Strong ability with front-end tools like HTML5, CSS3, Javascript and JQuery.
  • Experience working with responsive frameworks, like Bootstrap or Foundation
  • Proficiency in PHP/MySQL back end development
  • Advanced WordPress skills, including writing custom functionality, themes and/or plugins.
  • Wizard-like ability with debugging tools (like chrome inspector, etc.)
  • Experience integrating with APIs
  • Bonus: Experience with Single Sign-On integrations
  • Double bonus: Experience working with other content management systems (like Drupal or Sitefinity)

Some things to know about us:

  • We’re all over the place. Our team is mostly remote, with people both in the U.S. and around the globe.
  • People really like working here. Our employees consistently rate us their experience on our team as being in the 96+ percentile.
  • We believe in what we do. Learn more on our about page.

How to Apply?

Still with us?
Great. Because we’ve got some good news:

In exchange for your services, you’ll be rewarded with a flexible work schedule, competitive pay, unlimited leave, as well as participation in our annual shutdown (often two weeks off, sometimes more, at the end of the year). Plus, we celebrate most U.S. federal holidays by not working.

We welcome applicants from around the world, but, please, no outsourcing companies or staffing agencies.

To apply, please email careers@yokoco.com. Use the subject line “I Am the Wizard” and be sure to include a link to your portfolio and/or GitHub.
