Hi, my name is Brad Touesnard. I’m the founder of SpinupWP, a modern cloud-based server control panel with a special focus on WordPress. You connect SpinupWP to a cloud server (e.g. DigitalOcean) and it will set it up to run WordPress sites lightning fast and allow you to manage those sites with ease.We are a small but growing team of two 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 since we launched SpinupWP in 2017.Despite the crazy times we’re living in, we have big plans for 2021 and this is a great opportunity to join a small, growing team of talented folks building an awesome product.
Lewis, our in-house designer helps with all things design as well.I’m looking for a talented PHP developer to join Ash and George to help build new features for SpinupWP as well as help out with support and documentation.The app is built in Laravel and Vue.js, so experience with these frameworks will be a bonus. You’ll also be using Ansible to make sure SpinupWP provisions servers and creates and maintains sites using our LEMP stack so experience configuring Linux servers and server software (Nginx, PHP, MySQL, Redis, etc) is another bonus.We currently work in six-week cycles with a two-week cooldown period where you pick what you want to work on. All our code is committed to GitHub and your code will be reviewed by Ash or George using GitHub pull requests. Eventually you’ll be reviewing Ash and George’s code as well.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 and helping them with their problems with SpinupWP. You’ll start by drafting replies and having Ash and George review them before sending, but in short order you will reply directly to customers.You’ll also join the rest of our team in writing content for our site. We send an email to our 11k subscribers every week about our content.
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.
