Experienced SEO Developer

Wolfgang Digital is looking for a highly-motivated, capable and flexible web developer to join our team. We move fast and think big and we are looking for someone with the ability to adapt quickly and hit the ground running on technical projects ranging in complexity for our broad set of clients in a fast-paced performance agency environment.

You must have excellent HTML / CSS / Javascript skills with an understanding of current front-end frameworks (e.g. React, Angular, Vue). You build websites for both mobile and desktop while keeping up with and adhering to industry best practices. You have experience working in and editing themes in CMS and technologies such as WordPress, Joomla and Magento and are more than comfortable diving into their inner workings.

You work with RESTful web services on a regular basis and are comfortable integrating multiple data sources into a single application. You have worked with various web scraping utilities and would be comfortable extracting data from a listing or feed.

You also have experience working with relational database models such as MySQL, BigQuery, PostgreSQL.

  • High-level hosting and server management
  • Website deployment
  • Server / CMS migration
  • Organising backups
  • Apache and Nginx rewrites/redirects

  • Optimising for page speed improvements
  • Creating interactive content
  • Conducting technical SEO audits and implementing suggested mitigation measures to improve organic traffic performance
