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 seven 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.
Despite the crazy times we’re living in, we have big plans for 2020 and this is a great opportunity to join a small team of talented folks building awesome products before we get bigger.
I’m looking for a talented developer with lots of experience building WordPress plugins to join Jonesy in taking the WP Offload Media plugin to the next level. This involves building new features, fixing bugs, writing documentation, and supporting our customers via email.
Although the job involves writing code a majority of the time, you will spend a significant amount of your time sending emails to our customers, helping them with their problems with WP Offload Media. You’ll start by drafting replies and having Jonesy review them before sending, but in short order you will reply directly to customers.
You’ll also join the rest of our whole team in writing new articles and tutorials for our sites and updating existing content. We send an email to our 11k subscribers every week about our content.
Although this is how you’ll start, I’ve shuffled people around lots in the past and we’ll certainly be building new products in the future, so your role is certainly not set in stone. We have plans to start building a cloud component to WP Offload Media late this year or early next, so you will likely be involved with that project.
You’re thrilled to work with the latest hotness language or framework 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 a problem solver who loves to analyze an issue, recreate it and track it back to the source of the problem. You won’t commit any code unless it’s fully tested and solves the problem. Better still, you write the tests to go with 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 enjoy working with 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.
