Hi, my name is Brad Touesnard. I’m the founder of Delicious Brains Inc. We make high quality products for WordPress. 

The “we” is currently a small team of six developers, one designer, one marketer, and myself. I’m very proud to say that our little crew has been managing to delight thousands of customers for years. 

In addition to this position, I’m currently in the process of hiring a Developer Writer with plans for more soon. We have big plans for 2020. Exciting times! 

The Job 

We would like to transition Iain to a Product Manager role, but he currently spends all his time developing our sites: 
  • deliciousbrains.com (WooCommerce)
  • bettersearchreplace.com (Easy Digital Downloads)
  • spinupwp.com (custom checkout)
I want a talented developer to take over lead development of our sites. Iain will review your pull requests, but he won’t be writing much code, if any. 

In the past, WordPress development has been very PHP-heavy. But that has changed. React is taking over WordPress core, WooCommerce, and lots of plugins (including ours). So although working on our sites is still mostly PHP, the React work will be ramping up. 

A specific React project we’ll tackle soon is to extend the new WooCommerce Admin reports to include reporting for our custom software licensing and subscriptions addon. 

Responsibilities
  • Develop our custom software licensing and subscriptions addon for WooCommerce that runs on deliciousbrains.com (who knows, maybe we’ll turn this into a product someday)
  • Develop the APIs that our WordPress plugins connect to for licensing, support, statistics, cloud features, etc
  • Work with our designer and marketing team to implement new sections, pages, promotions, pricing, etc.
  • Chip away at the backlog of fixes and improvements
  • Maintain and write new acceptance tests
  • Test WordPress core and third-party plugin updates and fix any issues
  • Help maintain the servers running our sites
  • Write articles and tutorials for our blog
  • Attend company retreats (see details below)
Requirements 
  • Expert PHP & JavaScript development skills
  • 10,000+ hours of advanced PHP development
  • 10,000+ hours of HTML & CSS development
  • 5,000+ hours of advanced JavaScript development
  • 3,000+ hours of React development
  • 3,000+ hours of advanced WordPress plugin development
  • 3,000+ hours with git
  • Experience writing automated tests
  • Excellent English communication skills (spoken and written)
  • Work hours that overlap with the BST/GMT (London) timezone
  • Self-motivated and work well independently
  • Comfortable working remotely (we don’t have an office)
Nice-to-Have 
  • System administration skills
  • UX and design skills
  • Open source contributions
  • Computer Science degree or equivalent
Although this is the plan to start, I’ve shuffled people around lots so your role is certainly not set in stone. 

About You
 

You’re thrilled to work with the latest hotness JavaScript library (React) but also thrive working on a “fixer-upper” project. You respect old code, no matter how ugly it looks. You truly enjoy figuring out how old code works, refactoring it, and tackling the challenges that come with it. You have experience doing this type of work and know you love it. 

You’re curious and love to learn. You embrace the opportunity to level up, learn something new and really dig into it. You’re a disciplined worker and have no trouble getting work done at home on any given day.

You value consistency above preference and will adopt new coding styles, standards, and tools to that end. You are stellar at identifying the simple, elegant solution in a sea of over-engineering possibilities. 

Although you often need people to help you generate ideas and formulate a plan of attack on a project, you do your best work in isolation without interruption. You’re proactive in tackling things that need to be done without direction

You’re exceptional at communicating in writing via instant message, email, etc. You’re ok on the phone and video chat too. You understand that clear, concise written communication is how remote teams thrive. Putting a pull request up for review without explaining its context is unheard of for you. 

You own both successes and failures
. When a project you’re leading turns into a disaster, you own it and you learn from it. You never point the finger at others. 

You invite criticism
and genuinely want to grow as a professional. You’re onboard with pushing each other to be better and are not afraid to give constructive criticism in addition to receiving it.
