Job Description

We're building new ways to interact with WordPress. They're simple, fast, and highly usable. They're written in the latest web technologies and are used by millions of people. We want your help. We're looking for an experienced JavaScript engineer with:

* A rock-solid understanding of the core JavaScript language, HTML5, and CSS3. Experience working on accessibility is a plus.
* Familiarity with a server-side language like PHP, Ruby, or Python.
* Proficiency developing well-structured web applications using modern JavaScript tools like React and Redux.
* A real passion for crafting experiences that users rave about.
* The ability to iterate and ship ideas quickly, with loose (at best) direction.
* A love of open source software.

We're serious about growing diversity in the tech industry. We want to build Automattic as an environment where people love their work and show respect and empathy to those with whom we interact. Diversity typically includes, but is not limited to, differences in race, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, political and religious affiliation, socioeconomic background, cultural background, geographic location, disabilities and abilities, relationship status, veteran status, and age. To work on diversity means that we welcome these differences, and strive to increase the visibility of traditionally underrepresented groups.
