Just an opinion, but it seems to me that your must haves for a dream candidate would be placed much more in a mid level position, I don’t personally think a junior dev is going to have all that experience. But hope you find someone :+1:


Thank you Kalen - it’s a tricky position to advertise for.

Within the agency we are working on much more bespoke products, and somebody joining the team to work on Wordpress projects would be amongst the juniors at this stage.

The skills listed, although not basic, are our bare minimum requirements for new hires.


OT but: wow! I am flattered that my project ACF Fewbricks is listed under Technical Bonus Points :slight_smile:

Good luck with the recruitment!
