JavaScript Developer

Kinsta is a premium managed WordPress hosting provider designed for all types of businesses, small or large. We're the first to be exclusively powered by Google Cloud Platform while utilizing an isolated container system. We believe that constant availability and an outstanding user experience are a must. That’s why we always utilize the latest software and most advanced technology to power our infrastructure.

Location: Budapest, Hungary

Let’s get straight to the point: ever since Kinsta’s establishment, what we have been focused on is quality code. As we don’t have any investors and work on our own product, we can make the development process our priority. You will not be speaking with clients or leading a team and rarely be working with deadlines, while you will be able to work on what is most important to us and dedicate all the necessary time to perfecting your code. If you this sounds like you, apply!

As part of our JS Development Team you will be working with only the best Javascript tools on the market to build our client-facing and internal tools.
