WordPress Developer—Product, Scaling, and Performance @ Automattic

Helps us make WordPress.com, Jetpack, and WooCommerce fly. From anywhere in the world.

As a developer here you’re responsible for Making Stuff Go. The job is tough to describe because it’s so broad, but historically it has included new product development from conception to implementation, high-volume and high-concurrency programming, and a MacGyver-like dedication to squashing bugs. We have a wide variety of projects and systems. Here are some skills that will come in handy:

  • Advanced proficiency with at least one scripting language like PHP or Python. Low-level language experience is a plus.
  • Experience working on a large-scale system to make it faster, more scalable, and fault-tolerant.
  • The ability to iterate and ship ideas quickly, with loose (at best) direction.
  • A strong understanding of the Web including HTTP, HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.
  • Must be comfortable with customer-facing roles including support and documentation.
