Why we’re hiring a developer
Simple: We’re growing.
We’re growing, and we’re growing fast. We’re searching for the best and the brightest developers cities across the country have to offer! We’re searching for ambitious, driven, and creative game changers with a passion for revolutionizing digital marketing technologies, and creating amazing Wordpress sites. We want talented innovators, who never settle for the adequate, and always strive for greatness.
Why? Because that’s who we are.
We’re not just searching for developers – we’re searching for great developers.
To us, a developer is a scientist as much as an artist; a dynamic individual who can think logically and creatively. A great developer is someone who can write custom, compact, and efficient PHP from scratch and transform WordPress from its default settings into a secure, scalable, and beautifully organized paragon of blazingly fast custom functionality. We’re searching for developers with a strong commitment to delivering exceptional work, without compromises. We want the rock stars who face challenges with tenacity, an exceptional work ethic, and a positive attitude.
Who are we?
We’re currently looking to add developers to work out of our new Playa Vista office, as well as remotely.
