Investing in what matters most
Thanks to the talent and drive of our team, we’re able to work with some of the world’s biggest brands and champion the advantages of WordPress for enterprise organisations. That’s why Big Bite is a people-centric employer.
Be valued for what you do best
To attract, retain, showcase and support the brilliant minds that we have in our region, we offer more than just perks (although we like those too), and we’ve got the practices and policies to prove it.
From hybrid working and generous leave packages, to upskilling opportunities and proactive wellbeing support, we’re committed to elevating and investing in our employees. We also make sure that from day one, new team members enjoy the same level of benefits and job security as everyone else.
This is a great role for problem solvers with a great attitude and a genuine interest in modern development techniques. You’ll work closely with the rest of the engineering team to build enterprise projects and mentor some of our junior engineers too.
Working alongside an experienced team of engineers, you’ll build Gutenberg blocks with React, create powerful plugins, write PHP to extend the WordPress admin, and style solutions with HTML and CSS.
To help our employees thrive, every team member is able to split their time between office working and remote working.
Generous leave packages
We offer 25 days paid leave plus bank holidays, and fully paid maternity and paternity packages for mums and dads-to-be.
At Big Bite you’re given the freedom to work when it best suits you, whether you’re an early riser or a bit of a night owl.
Our whole team has access to an annual CPD budget to spend how they learn best – from visiting conferences to online courses or books.
Day one job security
We don’t have probation periods – from day one you’ll enjoy the same benefits as everyone else, plus regular check-ins, extra support, and training.
We love to see our employees happy, so we offer free mental health and well-being resources, including counselling to help your personal growth.
Our Slack based peer recognition system, HeyTaco!, offers monthly rewards to those who go above and beyond.
Our office, in the heart of Middlesbrough, is an inspiring space to work, recharge, and collaborate with your fellow team members.
Our core values
What we do is important, but how we do it matters even more, so we have core values in place that guide us on our journey as we hire, grow, and strive to be the best we can be.
As well as always respecting, supporting, and being kind to one another, we’re committed to being humble, pushing for quality, thinking outside the box, leading by example, sharing knowledge, and treating people equally.
These values create a foundation for how we conduct our business, how we work as a team, and how we collaborate with others.
