Senior WordPress Engineer @ FlowPress

Senior WordPress Engineer that’s excited to tackle big and interesting problems for large clients

FlowPress manages big and interesting WordPress based infrastructure for large clients and we’re looking for a talented Engineer to join the team.

If you’re looking for an opportunity to combine your natural creativity, leadership and problem-solving skills with your love of clean code and WordPress, then this might be the position for you.

General Skills

  • Code isn’t just poetry, it’s love
  • You love GIT (when you fork, it’s not just food)
  • You’ve worked with teams in a scrum or agile environment
  • You love clean, standardized code
  • You understand the need for highly performant websites and what to measure.

Code & Tools

  • You tinker with build systems like Gulp, Grunt and generally love automation
  • You understand deployment processes and automated integration tests. It’s possible you’ve had some experience with tools such as Strider-CD, CircleCI, or Jenkins
  • You have the urge to convert CSS to SASS.
  • You have experience with Bootstrap and other various JavaScript frameworks (e.g. jQuery, React, Backbone).

WordPress

  • You use filters and hooks to manipulate WordPress and don’t mix logic with templates unnecessarily.
  • You’re an enqueue’ing ninja and know how to properly register and enqueue assets within your plugins and themes.
  • You’ve written plugins, and you practice DRY (don’t repeat yourself) and KISS (keep it simple, stupid).
  • You’ve looked into WordPress Core and have a solid understanding of how the stack functions.
  • You are confident that when you see a WSOD (white screen of death) you know where to start debugging.
  • You’ve dealt with WordPress websites that don’t perform up to par and crash servers under heavy load.
  • You know what it means to profile a PHP app
  • You’re familiar with WordPress the database structure and could update a post and its metadata without the UI.

Clients

  • You don’t mind communicating with clients and are willing to work directly with them if necessary.
  • You have a good understanding of user experience both on the front end and back end

Position type: Full-Time (Remote is cool with us)
