Senior Developer

Our best Senior Developers drive what we can do as an agency, and use their experience to lead teams in delivering technical excellence for our clients. You will be a key part of a Unit, working with customer-facing roles to design technical solutions, promoting best practices internally and externally, and helping to oversee the successful technical delivery of client projects.

As a senior WordPress developer here at Angry, you will likely have expertise across a number of engineering languages and frameworks, with a WordPress and WooCommerce focus. Like our technical team, you will likely have enjoyed exploring opportunities and technologies outside the standard WordPress stack – including React, PWAs, Elasticsearch, Lavarel, VueJS, Svelte, Task runners, CI/CD and advanced API integrations.

Typical activities include:

– Leading the development of WordPress and WooCommerce projects

– Scoping and estimating work with Client Success Managers and clients

– Presenting work, ideas and proposed solutions to internal and external stakeholders

– Coaching and mentoring members of the team

– Problem-solving and testing proposed solutions with MVPs and prototypes

– Reporting on project development activity in team stand-ups and client meetings

– Collaborating with design and development departments to create effective workflows on projects

– Reviewing code and quality checking solutions

– Contributing to our internal products, and open source projects

– Representing Angry Creative at industry events and conferences

You will be an integral part of your team (called units here), which consist of a Unit Manager, Developers, Designers, Solution Architects and Client Success managers. Each morning you’ll attend a Unit Stand Up to ensure that you have the support you need to get your work done and to flag any potential blockers.

We encourage an environment where everyone is free to speak up and everyone’s voice is heard: communication and collaboration are things we insist on from all team members.

What we look for in people

We value and encourage an open mind. It is important to us that you are supportive to both clients and colleagues. We want you to be creative and suggest solutions to problems that might appear, and listen to other people’s input. It’s also important to us that you are flexible and adapt easily as we are a business that grows and moves quickly.

– Strong problem-solving skills, naturally inquisitive and someone that enjoys finding solutions

– Someone that loves learning and sharing knowledge with others and actively seeks out support from the wider team to help improve their skills

– You’ll understand what’s needed now and also have an eye on the future, and want to contribute to this

Career Progression

We try to find specialisms for each person within our technical team, which combines their interests with the needs of the company. Such as a coding language or methodology, or coaching and mentoring.

Senior Developers will often progress towards the Solution Architect role, which focuses on project planning and scoping and leading the technical implementation of projects.
