  • You love GIT (when you fork, it’s not just food)

  • You’ve worked with teams in a scrum or agile environment

  • You love clean, standardized code

  • You understand the need for highly performant websites and what to measure.

Code & Tools

  • You tinker with build systems like Gulp, Grunt and generally love automation

  • You understand deployment processes and automated integration tests. It's possibly you've had some experience with tools such as Strider-CD, CircleCI, or Jenkins

  • You have the urge to convert CSS to SASS.

  • You have experience with Bootstrap and other various JavaScript frameworks (e.g. jQuery, React, Backbone).


  • You use filters and hooks to manipulate WordPress and don’t mix logic with templates unnecessarily.

  • You're an enqueue'ing ninja and know how to properly register and enqueue assets within your plugins and themes.

  • You've written plugins, and you practice DRY (don't repeat yourself) and KISS (keep it simple, stupid).

  • You’ve looked into WordPress Core and have a solid understanding of how the stack functions. 

  • You are confident that when you see a WSOD (white screen of death) you know where to start debugging.

  • You’ve dealt with WordPress websites that don’t perform up to par and crash servers under heavy load.

  • You know what it means to profile a PHP app

  • You're familiar with WordPress the database structure and could update a post and its metadata without the UI.


  • You don’t mind communicating with clients and are willing to work directly with them if necessary.

  • You have a good understanding of user experience both on the front end and back end
