If developing digital with world-class Drupal & Next.js devs sounds good, then keep reading, apply and maybe you will sooner than later be one of us!

This is not the first job ad you see, but we sincerely hope you would read this one – not only will you find out a lot about Wunder as a company, but at the end of this advert, there is an offer for you that includes coffee, snacks, and an office tour.

If you wish to work with vivid grown-ups willing to grow and learn, you enjoy building together for a common goal – innovating and implementing in order to create smooth digital solutions, Wunder could be your thing. No uniforms, no strict rules, come as you are! We celebrate diversity since this brings innovation and creativity.

At Wunder, you work for us, with us and in development teams on clients’ projects – we do not rent you to another company.

Are you a home office, company office, or hybrid person? Not that it would make any change for us, as “Work from where you want and when you want” is one of our mottos. We encourage people in multiple ways to make the most of our flexible work terms in order to maintain optimal work/free time -balance. But our offices in Helsinki, Turku, Tallinn, Riga and Valmiera are pretty awesome too - so you truly can choose whatever suits you best. A combination of Wunder’s offices and home office is now the most common way to work for the majority of us.

What we expect from you

Devs with 2+ years of experience in Drupal OR 3+ years PHP experience, Object-oriented php, Git 3 years, MySQL, 2 years, Docker and Docker Compose 2 years. If you know the basics of Drupal, we are eager to provide you with a working environment where you can learn a lot*.

The backend tech we use

Drupal, ElasticSearch, Node.js, PHP, Symfony, and JavaScript/ES6+. We are gradually adopting TypeScript and developers can influence their project stack. To empower our developers we use Kubernetes and CI in most of our projects. Wunder has also created and is actively developing a hosting infrastructure, Silta.

At Wunder we do decoupled projects – so we have many talented JS devs as well. If you have an interest or experience in JS, this is also something you might be able to work with in our projects.

We have regular internal Tech Radar discussions to decide together what new technologies will become part of our stack.

We value your

  • Knowledgeability in agile development teams
  • Experience with Drupal integrations, migrations, composer, and building APIs
  • The ability to communicate fluently in English is essential: the ability to communicate in Finnish is a big plus.

*We have many wizard-level Drupal developers; among them is Rasmus who is the first triple-certificate Drupal Dev in Finland.

"I’m very stoked about Silta and what it has to offer to us developers. The flexibility in tech in this company has been fantastic to see! I'm also amazed at how helpful and caring this company is for its employees."
