In your job as a PHP Developer, your primary focus will be building new features, fixing bugs, and continuously improving our WordPress plugin products, including WP Rocket.
WP Media is the French company behind successful WordPress plugins like WP Rocket and Imagify. WP Rocket is the premium caching plugin for WordPress used by +3,200,000 websites and +280,000 customers worldwide. Our plugin makes sites go at the speed of light in just a few clicks.

You will join our remote, global Development team, which is spread across the U.S., Canada, France, Egypt, Spain, and Romania. To facilitate this international teamwork, you must live or work in a time zone between UTC+2 to UTC-7. We are so curious to know which new country will be added to our distributed team map! 🌍
Here is a list describing the tasks involved in this position (do you happen to like making lists? So do we!):
During this journey, you will get cross-training and growth opportunities by working with your fellow Dev teammates on internal projects.
Solid PHP expertise.
You will bring proven experience in building, improving, and maintaining PHP solutions. You develop using modern PHP (for example, OOP, Composer, or PSR’s) but also know when to use procedural.
Experience with automated testing.
You have experience with automated testing, i.e. unit, integration, and maybe even e2e acceptance testing. You value how granular tests prove that your code works as expected even in unexpected conditions.
Experience with automated code validation.
You think code should comply with PHPCS as well as best practices. You value automated code validation to do pre-code reviews while reducing our manual code review process. Don’t worry if you haven’t used PHPCS before. Why? It’s built into our development pipeline. We’ll teach you.
Proficient knowledge of English.
Empathetic and collaborative communication is key: you are comfortable writing, speaking, and listening in English with technical and non-technical teammates.
Considering how your work impacts others.
Your code is a pleasure to use, read, and understand. When working in the codebase, you leave things better than when you found them. You value personal growth and constructive feedback. People feel good around you because you love sharing what you know while continuously improving yourself, remaining thoughtful and flexible in your approach.
Passion and humbleness.
You are a skilled, passionate, and humble developer who is friendly, collaborative, and supportive. Solving problems and building solutions that help people are the values that make your work special and rewarding.
Do you want to know a few other things we appreciate about our candidates? Don’t worry if you don’t have experience in any of these areas. We’ll teach you.
Our products are built on top of and used within WordPress. We use a superset of WordPress coding standards. If you don’t have WordPress experience, we’ll teach you. We’ll show you how to leverage its APIs and helper functionality
Slack will be your virtual office, where all the life of the company takes place.
We will train you for this, and we will always have your back, don’t worry! But if you already have experience with web performance optimization, let us know. 😉
We support our teammates to attend and/or speak at conferences, and to volunteer within the community.
Founded in 2014 in the beautiful Lyon, France, WP Media is an equal opportunity employer with a distributed team of +35 teammates living around the world.
Mutual respect, collaboration, and inclusivity.
These are the fundamental values that support our life as a team.
Healthy balance between work and private life.
We encourage our employees to enjoy their family and hobbies with flexible working hours and minimum vacation policy. There are no time cards to stamp, only customers to make happy and friendly teammates to work with! We care about the work you do, not about the hours you sit at your desk
We have a public salary grid. Once a year, when the company does well, we share our profits with the team in the form of bonuses.
Perks and benefits
We want the people on our team to feel that they always receive what they need to shine. This is why we offer:
We like to see each other in person whenever possible.
Every year, we organize a trip with the whole team and spend a week of coworking and fun activities together.
To give you an idea, so far we have traveled to Spain, Portugal, Mexico and Greece.
Now that we’ve told you so much about us, it’s your turn. 😉
Let us know why you would like to become our PHP Developer and why you think you are the person we are looking for.
We can’t wait to receive your application! 🌟
