What is Scribbr? 🎓

We are a family of graduates who have one mutual goal: Help students graduate!

Scribbr helps more than 200 students daily, offering our Proofreading & Editing service, the Scribbr Plagiarism Check, APA Citation Generator and more than 1.000 articles written about thesis topics.

Together with our team in Amsterdam, and more than 500 freelance-editors, we do everything possible to provide the best service for students. This passion has earned us a customer satisfaction score of 9.9/10 from over 4.000 verified reviews.

We have customers in over 200 countries, 500 freelance editors around the globe and over 3.000.000 pageviews every month. You can imagine we have many applications to support all that.

As a Wordpress Developer you, together with our other developers, will help improve all these applications. 

What will you be working on?

1) Main website

We are constantly working on our main website to give students the best experience possible. Existing pages need to be improved or new templates need to be created. 

Since we get millions of page views every month, we are also constantly improving code under the hood to keep the website scalable and fast.

Techniques: Wordpress, Advanced Custom Fields, PHP, Javascript, SCSS, Twig, Git, CDN, caching, Bootstrap and more.

2) APA Citation Generator

Need some distraction from Wordpress? You could work on the APA Generator as a side-project. This tool helps students generate citations in the APA style. It is immensely popular and loved by students. 

From a technical perspective, the APA tool could use some improvement as it's written in spaghetti style jQuery. It’s time to rewrite this tool in a proper Javascript framework. Vue.js, React, Angular? You choose!

Once it is rewritten we want to add features and we think we can get over a million monthly users on this tool. Doesn’t that sound rewarding?

Who will you work with?

We are enthusiastic, we’re international and we love to celebrate success! We work together to ensure that students are fully satisfied with our services and that Scribbr keeps on growing.
