About the Position

We maintain an array of custom sites and a fairly large WordPress multisite installation, each with their own unique challenges to solve.

You should have experience working as a full stack developer in the WordPress ecosystem, however, the majority of the work will involve creating plugins, refactoring existing code, extending WordPress functionality, troubleshooting issues and conflicts between plugins – basically, anything required to deliver kickass, scalable, and maintainable websites.

  • Experience transferring data through endpoints using APIs/RESTful APIs
  • Test new website code prior to deployment
  • Use Git to manage source code
  • Ability to write, debug and test scripting languages like Javascript and jQuery
  • Ability to debug and refactor existing PHP code
  • Proficient with *nix shell / terminal

Bonus Points

  • Familiar with other programming languages, e.g., Ruby, Python, etc
  • Familiar with MVC software pattern
  • Familiar with Javascript frameworks,e.g., AngularJS, Ember.js, etc
  • Familiar with CSS, JS, and HTML preprocessors


In addition to a competitive salary, we also offer flexible work schedules, telecommuting/work from home, paid time off, and performance bonuses.

This is an informal and relaxed environment, but we’re very serious about producing high quality websites for our clients in Georgia and around the country. This is an exciting opportunity to join a small team of passionate and driven individuals.

We are NOT interested in outsourcing this work offshore or to contractors, as this is a full-time permanent position with our company.
