We are looking for an experienced manager to lead a team that does development and marketing.

Our company developers and sells WordPress plugins. We have a distributed team where everyone works from home.

An important part of our work is to build and maintain compatibility with other WordPress software - themes and plugins.

The same compatibility team is also responsible for the marketing cooperation with partners.

As our operation grows, we are seeking an experienced manager located in Europe (or very similar time zone) to lead this team.
