Automattic

Take WordPress, Simplenote, and other native apps for iOS and Android to the next level. We want people to be able to blog and manage their site or shop wherever they are on their iOS and Android devices, taking advantage of the things that make our mobile devices our most important ones such as media and notifications.

You:

  • Enjoy collaborating in code reviews and discussions about architecture or design.
  • Are motivated to make your teammates more productive.
  • Enjoy tooling for faster builds, a reliable CI, and automated code reviews.
  • Have experience with build systems for both iOS and Android.
  • Are knowledgeable about design patterns and testability; experience with XCUI / Espresso, performance testing, unit testing, and device farms is a plus.

Extra credit:

  • PHP, REST API, and WordPress backend programming experience.
  • Experience with mobile development for iOS and/or Android.
  • Familiar with Electron app development, or packaging and distribution.
  • Open source contributions.
  • You’re involved in open source or other communities.
