Hi-de-ho stranger. Biteable here. Let’s be friends. We need a fabulous new someone in our life to write Wordpress code and make our site ba-ba-beautiful. We’re friendly and flexible. And we totally understand if you come complete with kids, pets, side-hustles, and other #adulting stuff.

All about the role

You’ll manage your own schedule. While you’ll need to maintain regular work hours (for the benefit of your team), you’ll be free to lay your day out the way you like it.

Need to get the kids from school or take your granny to the shops? No problem. And you can work from wherever you want, be that your kitchen or one of our offices.

You’ll play a valuable role. You’ll lead on code and graphic design for the Biteable Wordpress site. You’ll work closely with our product designers to synchronize design with our product site.

You’ll work collaboratively with the marketing and content teams. Together, you’ll roll out content and functionalities that wow users and boost conversions.

You’ll share code ownership with your playmates in the development team. Together, you’ll maintain a robust code review process and troubleshoot any thorny issues that crop up from time-to-time.

Requirements

All about you

You Wordpress with finesse. Some people make an awful mess when they write code for the ‘press. This isn’t you. You’re an artisan. You write code with elegance. And you’ve got years of exquisite, custom Wordpress builds to back it up.

Design is your superpower. While you’re great at coding widgets and pages, your passion is for making them stunning. You’re a whizz at translating brand guidelines into beautiful things. And you’re comfortable sipping lattes with studio and design teams.

You know Timber isn’t just for lumberjacks. And you know how to use it when expanding custom themes.

You know your way around Javascript ecosystems. Like Gulp. Or other ones that aren’t named here ‘cause no one briefed the copywriter.

You’ve got the skills. In PHP and Javascript, that is. And if you haven’t already, you’re into learning Typescript.

You say ‘yes’ to CSS. You don’t brag about it, but you’ve received plenty of compliments for your CSS skills.

You’re a Git. But, in a good way. You’ve used Git and Github so much that it feels like a second home.

You know what AWS is. And you’ve probably deployed Wordpress on it. If you haven’t, you’re open to learning.

You’re most of the above. But not necessarily all. You can feel in your tummy if this is the right job for you.

You’re committed to learning. You love filling your head with new stuff and taking on new projects that expand your horizons.

“I’m thankful for the flexibility Biteable gives me around my family commitments. I really like that my team is open to new ideas and processes. And I enjoy that I get to work on a variety of problems with a mix of people with diverse areas of expertise.”

“The development team is a great group of people. They’re smart and interested in doing high-quality work, but foster a social and supportive atmosphere, too.”

    Software Developers are a key part of Alley’s team. Each developer will be deeply and personally involved in several client projects, and will work collaboratively with other members of the Alley team and with the client's principals as well.

    Our developers need to be well-rounded technologists who have a holistic understanding of the web technology stacks that we work with, but who can also interface with clients in a professional and intelligent way.

    We're not looking for rockstars, ninjas, zombies, or pirates. We're looking for smart, creative, resourceful developers who want to work with impressive clients and who take pride in their work.

    We recognize several levels of seniority and experience for developers, and tie compensation and responsibility to this. We are looking for all levels of developers for this position.

    Qualifications

    • Our primary development language is PHP. You must be fully fluent in PHP and have worked with it in a professional context before.

    • Prior experience with WordPress is a major plus. If you haven’t worked with WordPress, you should be excited to learn and develop with it.

    • We make heavy use of ES6 JavaScript (particularly React, as well as Node) and related tooling, including webpack. Previous experience is a plus, and a willingness to learn it is essential.

    • Alley prides itself on its ability to address unusual, novel, and complex problems that deal with the intersection of technology, business, and content production. You should understand and be able to discuss web technologies and systems conceptually, and be able to demonstrate that you can learn a new language, technology stack, or framework quickly and on demand.

    • You should feel comfortable at a Unix command line, even if you aren't an expert.

    • You must know your way around git and understand version control well, and be able to carry out typical operations with it, including branching, merging, submitting code for peer review, and reviewing your peers’ code yourself.

    • We apply Scrum as a development methodology, and broadly endorse Agile as a philosophy. You must be open to working this way as well, and prior experience is a plus.

    • You should also have very strong written and verbal communication skills, and the ability to wield them with both team members and clients. 

    • Important “soft skills” at Alley include: discipline concerning delivery dates, stylistic appreciation of what makes code good and readable, and a positive attitude about documentation, tickets, issue tracking, and timesheets.

    Note: In your cover letter, please provide links to at least three separate code samples, along with a description of each detailing what you wrote and why, why you're proud of it, and how it reflects your experience and abilities. At least one of your code samples must demonstrate PHP knowledge.

    It’s OK if you didn’t write 100% of the code you submit because you were part of a team that worked on it together, or because it includes open source components. In these cases, please explain what your specific contributions to the codebase were. We cannot accept any application without code samples.

    About Alley

    • We offer competitive salaries and company subsidized medical, dental and vision benefits. We also offer a 401(k) with company matching, a profit sharing plan, and an allowance for work-related expenses.

    • We have no set hours and do not limit vacation or sick time. We trust our team members to get their work done and take the time off they need to recharge and we suggest an average of three weeks off per year.

    • We are a fully distributed company, meaning we don’t have a set work location. Team members can choose to work from home, or from a co-working space. We’ll furnish your home office and provide an allowance for needed supplies, or rent you a co-working space.

    • Alley is an equal opportunity employer and we seek to increase diversity in the tech industry. We encourage applications from women, people of color, people with disabilities, members of the LGBTQ community, and other communities traditionally underrepresented in this field.
