Full Stack WordPress Developer – PHP / Javascript



Who We Are

Adpearance is a rapidly-growing technology company in Portland, Oregon with deep software development and digital marketing capabilities. We are currently looking to add a Full Stack WordPress Developer to our team.

The Position

This specific position on the Research & Development team focuses on building scalable website solutions in WordPress. We’re looking for a Full Stack Developer to help our product team advance to the next level by helping us develop not only amazing WordPress sites on the front-end, but a scalable, reusable platform in the backend.

The selected candidate will be responsible for developing and maintaining applications and plugins using primarily PHP in the backend to integrate APIs and advance various systems and components, as well as HTML and JavaScript on the frontend of our client websites.

Responsibilities also include collaborating with other developers and our design and product teams, developing new product features, writing unit tests, performing code reviews, and improving development process efficiency.

We want to hire smart people who like to work, love a challenge, and want to be a part of something special!


If you join the team, you'll be:

  • Leading the charge for our WordPress website solution. You’ll be guiding our platform architecture, developing plugins, establishing best practices, and mentoring our team on how they can do the same.
  • Building cool stuff. We’re building new technologies, plugins, and improving processes constantly. You will be a primary driver in helping us move the needle, both for our customers and our organization.
  • Working with a collaborative, high-performing team of strong technical talent. The right candidate will wow them and be challenged by them.
  • Balancing a combination of innovation and new feature development with maintenance of existing technology.
  • Part of the solution. We want developers who have a perspective, and you’ll have a voice in the approach.



You are an ideal candidate if:

  • You have at least 4+ years of full stack WordPress/website development experience. We're looking for someone with a deep understanding of WordPress development and related technologies: PHP, Javascript, HTML, CSS, MySQL, Linux servers, automated testing, version control, and WordPress plugin development.
  • You like building cool websites. You have a portfolio of awesome work to share. We want to see samples of the sites you’ve built!
  • You have a strong academic record. A CS degree is preferred but not required with relevant experience.
  • You get things done. You don't just solve problems. You find new ones and solve those too. You can identify code inefficiencies and how to refactor them, while taking full code ownership for your latest release.
  • You can be a partner and a leader. You can help mentor our other designers and developers, and help us Adpearance grow its expertise in WordPress site development.
  • You are a problem solver. You can understand the full scope of a problem and build a solution that addresses the need from start to finish. And you love to do it.

Education and Experience

  • Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science or a related field or equivalent work experience.
  • Four or more years of experience as a full-stack developer working with related technologies.
