Through our WordPress.com VIP program, we provide support, hosting, training, and other services to some of the biggest and best WordPress sites on the web (Time Inc.,Microsoft, News Corp, FiveThirtyEight, The New York Times, Reddit, and hundreds more).
As a developer (aka VIP Wrangler) on the VIP team you are responsible for working with and advising our customers’ developers (e.g., reviewing code, making architecture recommendations, debugging, etc.), building and shaping our products as a software engineer, and just generally Making Stuff Go.

- You enjoy collaborating with other developers, reviewing code, and making recommendations on technique or approach.
