Senior WordPress Developer with PHP + Server skills – Upwork

Us: A dynamic team of marketing and software professionals building software to delight our clients and bring real world value. The whole team is fully remote and we are around 30 to 40 strong. We do marketing in a specific niche market. We build campaigns, WordPress websites and plugins, custom tools and we have our own product that is built on PHP using Laravel for the back-end, and Vue.js for the front-end.

We are looking for a skilled WordPress developer with PHP skills and the ability to make servers bend to your will (AWS).

The new dev we hire will be:
High energy: You are excited to be working as a part of a fully remote team creating cool products
Excellent communicator: You speak English fluently on daily video calls
Self driven: You want to improve your skills and your value to the team
Quality minded: You understand your code must be edited by others one day, so you are into unit tests and commenting your code

… that are prepared to work Monday thru Friday, 7am to 4pm Pacific USA time (UTC -8)
… with a demonstrable high-speed internet connection
… that speak English fluently and are easy to understand
… with high-energy, self-driven and have an obvious passion for coding
… that are excellent and clear communicators
… with demonstrable WP, Server & PHP coding skills

We’ve been doing this long enough to know what type of people will fit into this team. Please don’t waste our time or your time if this isn’t you.

How this will work:
The right candidates for this job will write a compelling cover story that impresses us with your story. How did you get to this point in your career and why are you applying for this job. The first sentence in your cover letter should be "I get it, I think I am the perfect Dev for you to hire and here’s why …". This is the first way we will filter out candidates. Those without a great cover letter will be declined.
Second our Sr Product Manager will interview several candidates on a video call for around 5 to 10 minutes each. If your connection is spotty, if you microphone is hard to understand, if you are in a dark room and it’s hard to see you – He’ll quickly just skip to the next candidate. The candidates that pass this step will truly be those that are high energy and excellent English communicators.
Third step will be an interview with our Lead Developer/Technical Advisor. This will also be a video call and will last from 15 to 45 mins on average. There will probably be some screen sharing going on. The candidates that pass this step will be those that impress our Lead Dev with their energy, their dedication to their career and an obvious passion for coding.

Interviewing is one thing. Following directions, debugging and writing code is another thing. Those that interview well will be given a one-day opportunity to prove that you can actually debug and write code in real time.
