Where you’ll work

Every day, publishers and brands around the world work with WoodWing products to create magazines, newspapers, and other content, online, in-app, and in print.

About your role

We’re looking for a medior backend developer who will help maintain, build new functionality and implement improvements within the Studio Server.
