  • Write well-tested code including unit, integration, and end-to-end tests

  • Architect maintainable code

  • Learn and follow PMC's coding standards, project methodology, and best practices

  • As part of the engineering team, troubleshoot and address technical problems as needed


Experience:

  • Expert WordPress development skills, including data structures, capabilities, and best practices

  • Working with outside agencies/contractors on a project (or working for agency on a WordPress migration)

  • Front end web development experience (HTML, CSS, Javascript)

  • Proven ability to identify UI or UX improvements and solve them

  • Current knowledge of best practices and technologies: e.g. lazy loading, background requests, lightweight and scalable image handling, service workers, caching, cdn

  • Proven ability to write clean, organized, and well-documented code

  • Comfortable with the command line and creating command line scripts

  • Enjoy debugging complex problems

  • Enthusiasm for Agile principles and values

  • Experience working with distributed teams

  • Proven track record of delivering on your commitments and communicating risks

  • Ability to work well under pressure, handling multiple tasks and balancing multiple objectives, while consistently ensuring that the highest priority objectives are met

  • Strong knowledge of how the web works and how to make it efficient (HTTP/S, caching, page rendering, etc)

  • Good verbal and written communication skills, including sometimes communicating with VP-level executives

  • Experience writing non-jQuery JavaScript
    • Helpful skills:

  • SCSS

  • UX/Usability

  • Laravel

  • Vagrant + VirtualBox

  • AWS (EC2, S3, RDS, IAM)

  • Docker and/or Kubernetes

  • Web Accessibility

We encourage you to include links to work on Github or similar sites, WordPress.org contributions or plugins, and other places where we can see your work and examples of your code.
