Hi All,

I have a friend who owns a Digital Marketing/Media business looking to hire a new developer down in Melbourne. The job ad is up on Seek at http://www.seek.com.au/Job/wordpress-developer/in/melbourne-cbd-inner-suburbs/23013241 so if you feel you might be a good fit then put in an application.


Digicap is a young, rapidly growing UX & Digital Targeting agency with offices in North Richmond. We are on the lookout for a keen, all round web developer to help us deliver high quality, bespoke user experiences, through website and digital marketing capability.

You'll be working with a talented and close knit team of industry experts who are passionate about what we do.

To apply for this position you will need excellent front-end development skills and have good knowledge of latest web technologies including browser/device dependencies & best practices. Ideal candidates will have ample experience working with WordPress CMS and/or other open source platforms, and have a good general knowledge of PHP + MySQL.

We’re not looking for you to have a set number of years experience or specific qualifications. Rather, we want to hear from individuals with a passion for web technologies that are keen to join our successful and growing team and contribute to a high output and fun work environment.


Salary is up to $55k/year.

bepatient - you could give them a call anyway, I know they'll pay more for the right person (within reason I suppose).

I checked out Seek for "php developer" (not senior) across the salary brackets and found that in Melbourne for the last 30 days for permanent jobs it was;

$40-50k : 28 jobs
$50-60k : 56 jobs
$60-70k : 90 jobs

I'll let the guys know and mention they might need to up it.

wp devs will still line up for $55k, especially since you don't need paid experience

$55k is fine if you're looking for a grad with ~1yr commercial experience.
But don't expect anyone fantastic for that coin, they're already earning $70k.

To be fair the job description isn't for an uber PHP developer. They're looking for someone who can wield WordPress and throw down a little in LAMP.

If you're earning 70+ then this job would surely be boring anyway?
