Fullstack WordPress Developer

At Pixels we have a business-oriented approach in solving our clients' challenges. We believe digital services should provide means for growth and offer new possibilities in creating competitive advantages. We design and develop custom-made online services to companies who are eager to pioneer and show what’s possible in their industry. We dare to challenge conventions and utilise our experience in discovering new ideas.

Our company is on a growth path to become a leading business & service design agency in Finland with a strong tech focus, and we're looking for eager and capable people to join our journey in challenging the industry, its conventions and bigger players in it. 

We primarily use WordPress as a CMS for our website projects, WooCommerce for online stores and our web applications are usually React or Node based. We have a number of headless WordPress projects using a Next.js based frontend, and are interested in closing the gap between traditional websites and applications. But there certainly will be a need to heavy-duty 'traditional' WordPress projects as well. Currently we're preparing the move over to Gutenberg (with ACF blocks), which we'd love your help with – if that's something you're into. Our projects also often involve integrations which tend to be PHP based.

Our developers usually work on projects in pairs, so you’ve always got someone to bounce ideas off and review code with. Our developers share and learn from each other and we encourage everyone to suggest and contribute to improvements in how we work. We believe high-quality, beautiful code is just as important as a beautiful design.


Salary range: 3000 – 5000 € / month depending on your skill level and responsibilities you're able to take on.

The position can be remote only, but you'll need to be living in Finland and able to commute to our office in Helsinki every now and then for meetings and team events (once covid19 clears). 


  • Programming our client and internal projects with the above mentioned technologies
  • Working together on projects with other developers and designers
  • Reviewing colleagues’ code and providing feedback
  • Contributing to the improvement of our internal tools, development processes and tech stack
  • Planning and sometimes overseeing the development portion of projects with a project manager
  • Completing tasks on time and according to specifications
  • Contributing to the team’s skill development through support, training and information sharing
  • Acting as a mentor to less experienced developers, if you're able
