VertiStudio is a distributed team of more than 20 people all over the world (Romania, Poland, Greece, Portugal & more). Together we run a profitable and bootstrapped business for more than 9 years.

We’re not serial entrepreneurs and we don’t think we are the biggest, brightest developers tackling the biggest technical challenges on the planet.

But we think companies have unique DNA; VertiStudio is our means to express ourselves in our professional lives.

What makes us different?    

It’s not a product, a methodology, or a one-page manifesto.

It’s through hundreds of little things that we’re different.

What will you be working on? 

It depends on your interests & experience.

We have 3 major projects we love: Neve, Optimole & our own sites, our products are being used by around 1 million people & our content sites reach half a million people every month. You will be the technical lead for one of these major projects.

How will you get there?

We’d start with a short 2-week paid trial when you’ll identify some things that can be improved and start improving them immediately. The trial period’s details are flexible and you can work alongside your current work/ freelance projects.

See, we’re looking for someone who can teach us something & take our team to the next technical level.

What kind of people thrive here?

When I’m thinking about technical people, the ones that thrive are those that don’t like doing the same thing twice.

They’re independent. They like to get to the bottom of the problem. They use the latest technologies, but they’re realistic enough to figure out how it fits the project.

Take this example: https://github.com/Codeinwp/neve/issues/1989

Or the time an intern used a small internal hackathon as an opportunity to learn a new programming language by asking “can the blocks be made in exotic programming languages like PureScript, F# with Fable, or Elm?”

For this particular role, you’ll need to understand WordPress really, really well, have experience in leading a small team or at least running a major project on your own & have strong PHP & Javascript knowledge.

What does the process look like?

If you seem to be the right person, our HR Consultant will reach out to you for a quick 30’ meeting.  We would like to learn more about what you are looking for and answer your questions, alternatively, we can do this via text as well.

If we agree to move forward, then the next step would be a chat with Marius, our CTO, about the technical work you’ve done and what you would like to do.

If this goes well, we’d move into the 2-week paid trial to see how things would work.

If this goes well, you’re hired.
