We are looking for a WordPress Product Developer with 2 - 4 years’ experience to join our GiveWP team. Someone who is excited to learn and has a passion for WordPress, who knows how quality themes and plugins are built and have built a few themselves.

This position requires experience going beyond building websites into building web applications. You would be working in a complex application that spans dozens of add-ons which do everything from integrating with 3rd party services, to processing money through gateways, and improving the base product with exciting new features. GiveWP has a core plugin that is constantly growing and improving, so this requires thinking about how to create a core product that is extensible. This requires a strong understanding of application architecture, OOP PHP skills, and JS + React skills. We push the boundaries of modern WordPress architecture, so if you feel ready to jump into this and hit the ground running, then we’re looking for you!

As a WordPress Product Developer you would:

  • Develop new software solutions and maintain existing applications
  • Work with stakeholders to understand requirements and objectives
  • Work in teams of 2-3 with project specifications and execute as a team
  • Create, review, and update technical documentation
  • Collaborate with the team to explore individual and product growth opportunities
  • Write unit and integration tests to validate code function
  • Execute bug fixes with long-term prevention in mind
  • Measure results of implemented solutions
  • Participate in troubleshooting/triaging of issues and document them appropriately

You Have:

  • 2+ years experience building custom WordPress solutions
  • Skilled at crafting modern PHP (ex: autoloading, dependency management, dependency injection, templating libraries, automated testing, OOP, and/or frameworks like Symfony or Laravel, etc.)
  • Mid-level vanilla JavaScript + React experience
  • Thorough knowledge of MySQL
  • Basic knowledge of the product development life cycle
  • Exceptional organizational and communication skills
  • Exceptional HTML & CSS (including experience with PostCSS or Sass and BEM) skills
  • A passion for improving software/systems
  • Ability to work remotely with little-to-no supervision

Bonus Points for:

  • Advanced JS knowledge (state management, testing, async operations, etc.)
  • Experience with developing blocks for the Block Editor
  • Experience with continuous integration and automated deployment pipelines
  • Experience with JS application frameworks
  • Experience with server technologies like Redis or Elasticsearch
  • Experience building sites that are accessible (you’ve worked with WAI-ARIA and done WCAG 2.0+ AA/Section 508 work) and performant (working knowledge of best practices)
