As a WordPress Developer at Elegant Themes, you will be working with a small and agile team made up of talented devs from all around the world. We work with git, chat on Slack and our team structure is flat and open. Self-motivated individuals tend to thrive best here, and we are looking for someone filled with inspiration and who isn't afraid to take initiative.

This position is for someone with a deep understanding of WordPress. You have built your own themes and plugins before and possibly even contributed to WordPress Core.
