Wordpress Engineer

Location: Pasig, Metro Manila, Philippines

Department: Engineering

Type: Full Time

Min. Experience: Experienced

You may know us as Gengo, and you may know we were recently acquired by Lionbridge. Our name may be different, but our passion to create, culture of diversity, and technology-first mindset remain intact. In fact, these are just a few of the reasons we chose to join forces — Lionbridge will give us an even larger platform to share the original Gengo ethos. With the support of our new parent, we are also doubling-down on our focus to bring value to the AI ecosystem.

 

About us

We’re a Tokyo-based team, originally founded to help large and small online services Go Global with human translation through our API. We’ve since launched new services that bring AI training data to the expanding AI ecosystem. We love working with internationally-minded people, and most of our team have lived in another country before; a few even speak more than 3 languages (not including code!). Half of the team is stationed in Tokyo, and the other half in Manila — but our wormhole makes it seem like we’re all just “next door”.

  • Detailed knowledge of CSS layout including responsive design techniques
  • Experience developing with WordPress
  • Knowledge of cross-browser feature support and rendering
  • Solid understanding of the web technology such as HTTP, cookies, headers, asset loading / caching
  • Portfolio in form of a personal website, GitHub profile etc.
  • Keen eye for detail and able to meet deadlines
  • Conversational English and/or Japanese
  • An eagle-eye for detail and passion for perfection of design
  • Good teamwork but able to work independently, too
