Apply for this position

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.

We 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 we are working to move towards this direction with Website projects (and eventually Online Stores) in the future. Our projects often involve integrations which tend to be PHP based.

We are looking for a Web Developer to join our team to create outstanding digital user experiences for our clients and our own internal projects. The Developer’s responsibilities include programming, reviewing colleagues’ work, contributing to the continual development of our internal tools and processes, and supporting the design team with technical advice.

Our developers usually work on projects in pairs, so you’ve always got someone to bounce ideas off. They have weekly dev talks, lead by our seasoned Lead Developer, to 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.

A successful Web Developer at Pixels is able to consistently produce high quality work, provide supported feedback to their colleagues, help develop the tools and systems we use, help develop the development team, be communicative with the rest of the team, be skilled in problem solving and logic, and be a fun part of the Pixels team.

Salary range: 2800 – 4500 € / 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
  • Working together on projects with other developers
  • Reviewing colleagues’ code and providing feedback
  • Contributing significantly to the improvement of our internal tools, development processes and tech stack
  • Planning the development portion of projects with the project manager
