Bekijk in het Nederlands | View in Dutch ›

Do you want to work on professional WordPress projects with impact? Then you've come to the right place.

Super Interactive in Amsterdam has been a leading agency in the Netherlands in the field of professional WordPress website development for over 10 years. We have a unique track record in developing large, professional WordPress platforms.

For example, we developed a multi-site platform for political party D66 that runs about 450 websites. We also built Emerce.nl, a news site with 300,000 articles and tens of thousands of visitors per day.

We are currently looking for a WordPress developer to strengthen our team.

The ideal candidate has the following skills and characteristics:

  • Strong communicator and able to work independently
  • Of course, great affinity with WordPress
  • Minimum 2 years relevant working experience
  • Good PHP skills
  • Experience with WordPress theme and custom plugin development (from scratch)
  • Experience with front-end development tools like NPM, Sass, Webpack etc.
  • Experience with commonly used tools such as Git, MySQL, nginx, Composer, SSH / CLI, etc.

What Super Interactive offers you :

  • Working on WordPress projects at the highest level. You will work on professional platforms for parties such as D66, GVB and EMERCE.
  • The opportunity to work independently and grow within a close team of professionals.
  •  A radical focus on improving the products you build, and yourself as a professional.
  •  A pleasant and safe culture in which we take the time to deliver the best possible results.
  • A wonderful inspiring office in the center of Amsterdam, overlooking our beautiful garden.
  • An excellent salary plus an annual bonus scheme.

What you will be doing

As a WordPress developer you are responsible for the development of custom WordPress themes based on the templates developed by the front-end developer. You also develop tailor-made plugins to implement things as Custom Post Types, API connections and other advanced functionalities.

You will be working closely with other members of the team. After the launch of the first version of a product, we analyze as a team whether the set goals are achieved. As a WordPress developer you too have an important role in this evaluation. We understand that you can have important insights from your position so your ideas are highly appreciated.

What we pay attention to

  • Because we work with a relatively small team, it is vital that you fit our culture.
  • We are especially curious about what you actually built. A CV is nice, but a link to your Github profile with some examples of your work is much more interesting for us.
  • You can work independently. It's up to you how you do your job. Of course you will be guided by the other developers and there will always be room for questions, but you are expected to have ownership over your work. So we are very curious about what self initiated projects you have worked on.

The Super Interactive culture

We are a relatively small and flexible organization. At Super Interactive everything is about learning and improving. We are constantly looking for ways to build better digital products and become better at our job.

Our culture is informal but professional. We like to take the time to come up with solutions whilst constantly shipping. Every member of our team works independently and is an expert in his or her field, allowing us to deliver high quality work.

We use modern tools and methodologies and seek to constantly improve the products of our clients and our own workflow. We define goals as OKRs and we run projects from Asana and Slack (we are not big fans of e-mail). Our workflow is based on Scrum and we start every morning with a daily stand-up in front of our scrum board.

If we can't find the proper tools for the job we just develop something ourselves. This is how we came to built our own Quality Assurance system called Bouncer.

At Super Interactive we believe that beautiful digital products need time and further development. So our focus is on long-term relationships. We choose to work for relatively few clients at the same time. This way we can really give them the attention they deserve.
