Description

Automattic is the company behind WordPress.com, WordPress.com VIP, Akismet, Intense Debate, Gravatar, Polldaddy, Simplenote, and more. We're focused on making the web a better place.

We're also a 100% distributed company: everyone works from their own home or office, and we’re spread out all over the world — California, Texas, New York, Canada, Ireland, Japan, Iceland, Bulgaria, Australia, and more. We track about 70% of our projects on P2-themed WordPress.com blogs, 25% on private IRC channels, and the rest on Skype—no email! Because of the geographic variance, we’re active pretty much 24/7. We care about the work you produce, not just the hours you put in.

Through our WordPress.com VIP program, we provide support, hosting, training, and other services to some of the biggest and best WordPress sites on the web. Our VIP Wranglers are responsible for providing support to all of our customers, building and shaping our products, and just generally Making Stuff Go. Here are some skills that will come in handy:

  • Advanced proficiency with WordPress. Low-level language or systems experience a plus, but not required.
  • A strong understanding of the Web including HTTP, HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.
  • Must be comfortable working primarily in a customer-facing role, including providing support and training.
  • You enjoy collaborating with other developers, reviewing code, and making recommendations on technique or approach.
  • Great troubleshooting skills. Must be able to take big problems and break them down into manageable pieces with elegant solutions—and importantly, keep our customers apprised of progress throughout.
  • The ability to iterate and ship ideas quickly, with loose (at best) direction.
