We want you to help us take WordPress, Simplenote, and other native apps for iOS and Android to the next level. We want people to be able to blog and manage their site or shop wherever they are on their mobile devices, taking advantage of the things that make our mobile devices our most important ones such as media and notifications. We work closely with multi-functional product teams to improve the WordPress experience on phones and tablets — both the apps and their underlying APIs and systems.

  • You love collaborating in code reviews and discussions about architecture or design.
  • You’re motivated to help your teammates become more productive.
  • You’re passionate about refining tooling for faster builds, a reliable CI, and automated code reviews.
  • You have extensive experience with build systems for both Android and iOS.
  • You’re knowledgeable about design patterns and testability – experience with XCUI / Espresso, performance testing, unit testing, and device farms is a plus.

Extra credit:

  • PHP, REST API, and WordPress backend programming experience.
  • Experience with mobile development for iOS and/or Android.
  • Familiar with Electron app development, or packaging and distribution.
  • Experience with React Native development.
  • Open source contributions.
  • You’re involved in open source or other communities.
Speaking of interests and skills, here are some areas in which you can grow and have further impact in the future at the company:
  • Leadership – we offer a variety of leadership options to those who have interest, including becoming a team lead and managing releases.
  • Learning and development – we have a generous personal development budget and encourage you to grow your skills through courses, books and conferences.
  • Architecture – we encourage developers to develop expertise in the systems they work with, guide their evolution and mentor other developers working on them.
  • Engineering effectiveness – we believe in helping other developers become more effective through tools, practices, cross-team collaborations, and process improvements.

How do we work?

  • We’re kind to each other and our users – we strive to build a positive, supportive, and inclusive culture of cohesive teams focused on delivering value to our customers.
  • We work as a global and distributed workforce resulting in a unique way of working built around our creed.
  • We offer flexible work arrangements allowing our team members to work when they feel best.
  • We open-source! We’re cool with open-sourcing everything except passwords, or secret keys.
  • We ship often, deploying many times daily with the help of peer code review, continuous integration, and our global workforce in over 70 countries.
  • We welcome collaboration, and you can be involved in any discussion across our many communication channels.
