About Candide

Candide is a market platform helping businesses and the public break new ground in the gardening sector, through the application of technology. We motivate the public to connect with nature and enable everyone to grow big and shop small, with curated online catalogs of plants, tools, and accessories from exceptional independent businesses.

The Role

We are looking for an experienced Wordpress Engineer to help get us started with using Wordpress products within our custom site. Initially starting as a 3-month contract (with potential to extend) you’ll form part of a project team and work closely with marketing specialists, designers and the core Candide team throughout.

Our ideal candidate

We are looking for self-starters who know when to ask for help. You will have strong explanatory skills and a track record with integrating Wordpress products in both green and brown-field projects. You will need to be able to manage your stakeholders and extract the information you need to complete your tasks.

Team culture

We work in small, cross functional teams to turn business goals into product features. Great communication (weekly tech reviews and deeper fortnightly retrospectives) means there is an inherent no-blame culture.
