            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.

            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.

            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.

          • Summary

            We're Happy Cog (formerly Vector Media Group), a full service interactive agency that works on a wide variety of projects. Lots of those projects are made with Craft CMS: we're an official Craft Service Partner and have built some of the largest and most complex Craft sites out there. We've also been the Craft conference (Dot All) platinum sponsors for 2 years in a row.

            While we already have a number of Craft developers on our team, we're looking for more. We’re a growing, distributed team of 65+ people headquartered in Manhattan's NoMad District with great clients (like Google, Airbnb, Twelve South, Etsy, The Associated Press, New York City, St. Regis, Columbia University, and WPP) and an incredible roadmap.

            Our projects vary in size and often include features and functionality that go beyond traditional brochure sites with a simple CMS. We integrate our client’s sites with a variety of systems, services, and APIs, such as e-commerce, search engines, CRMs and marketing automation tools, digital asset management systems, ERP systems, and more.  

            We're hiring versatile developers who can work in a variety of platforms and languages. We look for experienced and well-balanced developers who have broad skill sets. The focus of this role is on backend development, writing custom Craft (or other CMS and platform) plugins and other code that integrates external APIs and systems. You should be comfortable with frontend skills like HTML, JavaScript, and CSS as well. 

            You’ll be working on 3-4 projects at any time; typically one larger project and a few smaller projects to keep things fresh. We’re a fast-paced agency with a great team environment, so you’ll never get bored. We need someone who loves keeping up-to-date on the newest advancements in the field and can figure out when to start applying those advancements to client work. You'll work with other smart developers who can help you grow and challenge you, as well as help you along the way. You’ll also be communicating directly with clients and with our project managers to understand their requirements and present your work. Your job will be fun, challenging, and interesting. 

            Responsibilities Will Include
            • Building new applications, websites, and features with a variety of platforms including Craft CMS, Laravel, and more.
            • Contributing to high-level architecture planning, consulting with our internal team on approach and level of effort, directing more junior developers.
            • Flexing your muscles on aspects of application development outside of app code: database modeling, query optimization, setting up efficient logging and monitoring solutions, and other advanced requirements for highly functioning apps (you do not need to be a DBA/Systems Administrator/DevOps expert).
            • Working closely with our front-end and back-end development teams on website projects. We’ll want and expect your input on the best ways to structure the build — from start to finish.
            • Writing and maintaining clear documentation of your work, so that others on the team can pick up where you left off or learn from your experience on a project.
            • Staying up-to-date on the latest development technologies and methodologies.
            Requirements
            • Deep knowledge of PHP and web application architecture (experience with other languages, such as Python, Ruby, Node, etc. are a plus as well)
            • Previous Craft CMS (or Expressionengine, Drupal, WordPress, other PHP-based CMS) experience
            • Previous MVC framework experience, Laravel is strongly preferred.
            • Ability to understand user behavior and intent, and use this information to build intuitive apps and websites for our clients.
            • Knowledge of Git, we use it on all projects.
            • Experience with AWS services is a plus.
            • Ability to work and collaborate on a team with others.

             

            We offer
            • A creative environment to do the best work of your career.
            • An amazing team of developers, designers, marketers, project managers, and the occasional four-legged office pet.
            • Lunch paid for by the company, every day, via your own Seamless accounts (for on-site employees).

            We are the people behind WordPress.com, Jetpack, and WooCommerce, and more.

            We are seeking a talented wrangler of contracts, shares of stock, and the myriad details that we need to mind, in order to keep the Automattic legal machine humming along. This is a generalist role, ideal for someone with a keen eye for sensible, practical solutions and operational excellence.

            As a legal operations wrangler, you will be part of a small legal team responsible for supporting all of Automattic’s growth. This a great role for a candidate looking to expand beyond what is on offer in a traditional legal ops or paralegal position at a more moribund company.

            Some of your responsibilities will include: impeccably managing our cap table in Shareworks, helping to wrangle our flow of contracts, contributing to quarterly investor reporting and annual audits, maintaining our corporate compliance, and keeping our insurance coverages current. Everything at Automattic is done on a global scale and in an international context, and you will frequently be managing projects in non-US jurisdictions.

            We’d love to hear from you if you:

            • Have experience working in a lean, fast-growing, fast-paced software, internet, or creative startup, large private company or at an investment fund.
            • Have exceptional interpersonal skills, including outstanding verbal and written skills in English.
            • Possess an agile and curious mind. You’re not afraid to ask questions or admit when you are wrong.
            • Have a healthy sense of humor, and an abiding spirit of idealism about your chosen profession.
            • Are extremely detail-oriented, and are adept at spotting inconsistencies and ferreting out anomalies. 
            • Have a passion for elegant, simple, automated solutions that keep operations running smoothly, and an ability to see opportunities for process improvement and the initiative to move forward with action.
            • Thrive in a tech-centered, developer-focused environment, and enjoy collaborating with engineers and understanding technical and product details.
            • Love a dynamic, fast-growing environment.
            • Prefer operating very independently, and are highly motivated to learn new things and improve your skills, and enjoy juggling an array of tasks.
            • Are collaborative, and enjoy working with teams such as Engineering, Marketing, and Finance.
            • Excel at understanding complex topics and explaining them to others in clear, concise terms.
