Cornershop Creative: Help Wanted: Backend Developer

Authentic Jobs - Full Stream -

Full-time

(Anywhere, US Only)

Cornershop Creative (https://cornershopcreative.com) is seeking an awesome, U.S.-based backend developer to join our distributed team. While we hope and expect this position will turn into a permanent full-time position, we can’t guarantee that at the moment.We envision starting with a full-time 4-6 month engagement to help with a few specific projects and then re-evaluate after that period.

 

The core responsibility for this position will be building custom API integrations and scripting data migrations for WordPress-based websites and applications for our non-profit and small business clients. Tasks may include setting up WordPress custom post types, fields and taxonomies; troubleshooting server errors and migrating sites to different hosts; integrating WordPress data with third-party tools like SalesForce and Blackbaud products; and creating scripts to migrate data from other CMSes and data structures to WordPress. Additionally, this position may be responsible for developing and maintaining custom WordPress plugins.

 

While our primary need is strong PHP skills with solid experience building sites and applications in WordPress, our ideal candidate will have familiarity and eagerness to learn to code in other languages and on other frameworks (e.g. javascript, mobile app development, Laravel).

 

Our ideal candidate is a hard-working, curious troubleshooter comfortable working independently with little supervision who also enjoys working as part of a team that includes developers and non-developers. Since we're a distributed shop, you’ll get to work from home! Cool, right?

 

Some Things You’ll Need to be Comfortable With:

  • Making WordPress sync data with common (and not so common) third-party REST & SOAP APIs

  • Crafting ingenious scripts to migrate datasets from outside systems, such as other CMSes, into WordPress, even when their character encoding isn’t what you want it to be

  • WordPress theming, including the template hierarchy, hooks, WP_Query, etc.

  • Finding existing libraries, plugins or other internal/external solutions to solve programming challenges, rather than reinventing the wheel

  • Deploying websites onto production hosts via git, rsync (and maybe sometimes sFTP), configuring caching, updating DNS records, and associated launch tasks

  • Quickly and effectively maintaining/troubleshooting/supporting code written by other developers

  • Command line tools like git, gulp, and wp-cli

  • JavaScript (particularly in jQuery)

  • Laughing at our stupid jokes (and the occasional good one)

  • Performing basic devops/Linux sysadmin tasks like writing bash scripts, configuring web or database servers, and figuring out why the “uploads don’t work!”

  • Troubleshooting MySQL performance issues (and writing performant queries)

  • Working in a fast-paced environment (we keep pretty busy!) and managing a workload of several projects at a time

  • Utilizing superb written and oral communication skills

 

Other stuff we’d love it if you’re good at, but aren’t requirements:

  • Working with and customizing Buddy/bbPress and WooCommerce

  • Drafting functional requirements that specify the appropriate technologies, techniques and architectures necessary to bring needed features to life

  • Working with other developers to implement the aforementioned plans

  • Not losing your s#!% when you occasionally get feedback like “Nevermind. We actually need that field that we told you not to migrate” (and then getting asked to change it back), which may happen despite our best efforts

  • Working with nonprofit CRM tools such as Salsa, Luminate Online, Engaging Networks, and Salesforce

  • Remembering to un-mute yourself before talking on conference calls

  • Being passionate about progressive causes

  • Writing custom CSS/SASS for cross-browser, responsive design (not just by using Bootstrap)

  • Configuring and/or maintaining AWS environments for hosting PHP-based websites and applications

  • Mucking around with Laravel

 

Cornershop Creative is an award-winning online services agency committed to listening carefully to our non-profit and small business clients and helping them achieve their goals. Our designs are beautiful, and our websites are creative and innovative. Learn more about us at https://cornershopcreative.com/.

 

To apply, send an email to jobs@cornershopcreative.com with the following:

  • Your résumé, which should include an indication of which American state you live and work in

  • A brief cover letter, explaining why you’re excited about this opportunity

  • Links to work you’ve done that we should see, such as recent websites, git repos, or contributed plugins/modules/themes

  • Ideal hourly rate

BuySellAds: Product Manager/Designer, Fully Remote

Authentic Jobs - Full Stream -

Full-time

(Anywhere!)

Who are we?

BuySellAds operates the largest self-serve advertising marketplace on the web. We’re an adtech company empowering publishers and advertisers to connect more efficiently. We're growing fast, and we want you to be part of our team!

 

Don’t let the “adtech” part scare you away: our mission is to help publishers better monetize their sites so they can spend their time focusing on what they care about (their content!) rather than selling ads. We leverage tech to help broker these sales, and attempt to distance ourselves from the shady world of advertising that existed before.

 

We are a fully distributed/remote team, with 35+ people spread out across 30 cities in 6 countries. Our primary focus as a team is how our products can solve our user's needs.

 

Who are you?

We are looking for a product manager, preferably with minor technical or design chops, to join our dev team. Everyone on our dev team makes meaningful contributions that positively impact our team and our customers every day, and this role is particularly high-leverage if you're into that.

 

Our roles are intentionally open-ended. It's simple: tell us where you feel you provide most value. At a high level, you enjoy translating customer/stakeholder requirements to developer speak and back, and want to have an intimate attachment and contribution to our roadmap and product vision. You like ticketing, QA'ing, being involved in product design, and being responsible for deliverables/shipping.

 

Ideally you're comfortable working with git and making minor code changes (e.g. copy or design tweaks) locally at the very least. If you can design mockups in code, even better - we lean towards more technical product people because we believe this leads to tighter feedback loops, but this isn't a strict requirement so long as you're open to learning some stuff here.

 

We are looking for someone who is:

  • Able to help take requirements from users through to developers and back.
  • A self-starter: remote teams carry lots of autonomy. There’s no micromanaging here.
  • A great communicator: we’re big on teaching, learning, debating, and explaining, and these things require clear, deliberate communication.
  • Wary of bullet lists with more than 3 items in job postings: we aren’t heavily process-oriented or believe in tons of structure, and if your eyes have glazed over while reading this list, you might just fit right in.

You’re likely more awesome than you think, so apply even if you only check a few of these boxes. Please note that right now we're only hiring within 3 hours of Eastern Time.

 

Interested?

Woohoo! To apply, send us a blurb about who you are and what you’re into through Authentic Jobs. If you’re stuck on where to start, just focus on products you've been involved with in the past and what you're looking to be doing now. (You can attach a resume too, but we’re more interested in seeing what excites you rather than a bullet list of your previous jobs.)

 

We do our best to make the hiring process fair and straightforward: we'll do an initial phone screen, chat through some design decisions in a mock project via Slack (our primary mode of communication), and assign a take-home assignment paired with a programmer as well. We move quickly on decisions, and we aim to respond to every applicant and provide feedback where appropriate: even if we aren’t the right fit for each other, we want you to know rather than have to second-guess.

 

And if we are the right fit? We’re stoked. Come build a platform to help fix advertising with us.

Job Perks: Fully remote; small team/high impact; strong, motivated team. Big on mentorship and personal growth.

We are looking for a remote developer to add to our team. Our agency builds websites and web applications for clients throughout the United States, and our primary development framework is Ruby on Rails. While you do not need to be a senior-level Rails expert, you should be very comfortable working with Rails 4.x and 5.x applications.

You will be responsible for building out new websites for our clients using our awesome, custom-built content management system. Most of the time, we will provide the HTML templates for integration into our CMS; but sometimes, we will ask you to build out the HTML/CSS/JS for splash pages and other simple projects. You will also be responsible for implementing ongoing website and web application updates requested by our clients.

We are building a new version of our content management system that we want you to take the lead on. We are also building a fun web application for the tourism industry and a unique web application for a prestigious university, and we want you to be a large part of those projects.

You need to be very familiar with HTML, SASS, jQuery, MySQL, PostgreSQL, and git. The more experience you have with Rails, the better. If you have an eye for design, even better. You will be jumping between projects frequently, so you won’t be bored working on one project.

Impress us with your cover letter. Be loose. Have fun. Make us smile. Send us links to your GitHub and any projects you have worked on that you are proud of. Full-time, part-time, or freelance work is available, so please specify what you are looking for when applying.
