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.

Ever since Kinsta’s establishment we have prioritized quality, future-proof and forward-thinking development. Our focus on the latest technologies, code refactoring, ownership and the importance of domain knowledge has helped us grow each individual within our team.

We are looking for a Senior Developer Trainer with experience in training teams of 20+, both in groups and individually, and imparting technical and domain knowledge alike.

Your goal will be to make development more effective through better onboarding, more efficient knowledge flow to team members and lifelong learning. You will be tasked with overseeing, expanding and improving our existing training pipelines in service of this goal. Some key areas are:

  • Onboarding and initial training of new team members to give them the necessary technical skills, domain knowledge and soft skills.
  • The efficient training of our code school pipeline where our goal is to find driven students and give them the tools they need to become great developers at Kinsta.

We strongly emphasize the importance of ownership paired with wide decision making capabilities. We are building a team of leaders and this is something we want to instil at every level.
