As a developer here you’re responsible for Making Stuff Go. The job is tough to describe because it’s so broad, but historically it has included new product development from conception to implementation, high-volume and high-concurrency programming, and a MacGyver-like dedication to squashing bugs.

We have a wide variety of projects and systems requiring various competencies, but in general the following skills will come in handy:

  • Advanced proficiency with at least one scripting language like PHP or Python. Low-level language experience or production experience with multiple languages is a plus.

  • Experience working on a large-scale system to make it faster, more scalable, and fault-tolerant.

  • The ability to iterate and ship ideas quickly, with loose (at best) direction.

  • A deep understanding of the Web including HTTP, HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.

  • You’re comfortable with customer-facing roles including support and documentation.

We’re serious about growing diversity in the tech industry. We want to build Automattic as an environment where people love their work and show respect and empathy to those with whom we interact. Diversity typically includes, but is not limited to, differences in race, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, political and religious affiliation, socioeconomic background, cultural background, geographic location, disabilities and abilities, relationship status, veteran status, and age. To work on diversity means that we welcome these differences, and strive to increase the visibility of traditionally underrepresented groups.
