An award-winning, ethical and really fun organisation seeks an ambitious individual willing to help push us to the next level.

We are looking for a highly-skilled, resourceful mid-level CMS manager with a minimum of 3 years experience of CMS management. With experience ideally on the WordPress platform you will manage and develop IT systems for a dynamic and fast paced mid-sized organisation.

You'll be tackling large and small projects that are fun, challenging and hopefully span the spectrum of CMS management and development. Sometimes the deadlines are tight, but that's why we're looking for people with great personalities who are team players.

When a project is done, we'll celebrate, enjoy the view and look forward to the next project—wiser and stronger than before. We're a casual-dress, fun, thriving company with a great work environment and plenty of growth in our future.

We have a great set up just outside Noordhoek, Cape Town, South Africa where you will be based but will have ample opportunities to work from home. If we've sparked your interest, drop us an email with your resume, examples of WordPress sites you have produced or been involved in, and a strong cover letter, and then we'll talk.

Sadly due to the large volume of applicants we normally get for our cool jobs we cannot respond to those who don't quite fit what we are looking for. If we don't get back in-contact, good luck and keep trying!

Start date - August / September 201
Remuneration- Competitive
