Senior Software Engineer
Are you an experienced engineer who enjoys creating incredibly useful tools? Do you want to help guide a large open source community into the future by building intuitive, easy to use WordPress themes, plugins, and Blocks?
As a member of the StudioPress team at WP Engine, you’ll do meaningful work that helps people easily create a web presence for themselves (or their clients) on WordPress. You’ll work side by side with the other engineers on our team, as well as the product and marketing teams, to squash bugs, build useful features, and create new products that will help delight WordPress agencies, freelancers, and DIY users. You’ll have ample opportunity to learn and grow, while you take on the challenging work of serving a large and active open source community.
In addition, strong candidates would also have experience in some combination of the following:
Listening & Organization
Because you will be working with a team of other software engineers and stakeholders, as well as the open-source community, strong listening and communication skills are a must-have. We mostly chat in Slack, but you’ll also be expected to participate in video conferences like daily standup meetings and other Scrum ceremonies. Adherence to the team coding standards, along with documenting your code, are essential for reducing friction between team members. And of course, be nice! Empathy is key. Respect for your coworkers and customers is essential for success in this role, but it’s also the right thing to do!
At WP Engine, we strive to have the broadest possible view of diversity, going beyond visible differences to include the background, experiences, skills, and perspectives that make each person unique. WP Engine is proud to be an equal opportunity workplace and is committed to equal employment opportunity regardless of race, color, ancestry, religion, sex, national origin, sexual orientation, age, citizenship, marital status, disability, gender identity, Veteran status, or any other basis protected by federal, state, or local law.
