Title: Remote Senior Software Engineer

Summary:We are looking for a senior software engineer to work on our WordPress product.

This is a remote position – our team is spread around the globe! Our home base is in Utah, USA, so company operating hours are 9am – 5pm MST (UTC -7). While full coverage is not a requirement, you must be available during a portion of the day.
Post date:2021-02-07
Company:Strategy 11
Location: , Utah
Country:United States
May telecommute:Yes (May work remotely)
Description:Hi! We’re Strategy 11. We are the company behind Formidable Forms and our newly acquired Business Directory Plugin.

Over 300,000 websites use our software to build custom web applications. No matter what product we’re working on, our goal is to make big projects possible without big resources, and make complex tasks simple.

We have tons of big plans for the future, and would love for you to be a part of it.

As a WordPress Developer, you’re responsible for Making Stuff Go. You will build infrastructure to create new features, improve existing code, squash bugs, and help us rapidly scale our platform.

You will primarily be working in our product team.

To love this role, here’s the type of person you are:

- You’re a self-starter who loves taking initiative and seeing things through from conception to completion. Our developers often “own” features/tasks and are responsible for scoping, development, and testing.
- You’re an excellent communicator, fluent in both verbal and written English, who makes sure nothing slips through the cracks. We believe communication is critical and there is no such thing as over communicating.
- You have the curiosity and desire to learn and grow your skills.
- You’re passionate about leaving your mark on the web for all to see and are excited to work on tasks that impact thousands of users.
- You take pride in the quality and craftsmanship of your work rather than just doing it to get it done.
- You’re a team player who is comfortable working alongside and helping other developers, and you don’t take critical feedback personally.
- You’re happy jumping between front-end and back-end development tasks, or tackling tasks which require both.
- You’re happy working on tasks of all sizes – from small bug fixes and enhancements to large features/rewrites.

Common responsibilities include (but are not limited to):

- Triaging bugs and small enhancements that come into GitHub.
- Scoping, writing, and testing new product features and add-ons.
- Refactoring legacy code with a particular attention to backwards compatibility.
- Providing feedback and peer review for other developers (Github PRs).
- When tickets are escalated, debug customer issues in our help desk.

Here are some skills that will come handy:

- Professional experience with WordPress plugin development, architecture, and standards.
- Advanced proficiency with PHP and MySQL, including modern PHP practices (OOP, autoloading, traits, interfaces, etc).
- String familiarity with JavasScript (vanilla JS, jQuery, etc).
- Ability to use and extend build tools like webpack.
- Familiarity with package managers such as NPM.
- Experience working with third-party APIs (Eg Stripe, MailChimp, Zapier, etc).
- Competent with version control through git and GitHub.
The ability to iterate and ship ideas quickly.
- Exceptional troubleshooting skills.
- Ability to keep complex ideas and features simple. (Simplicity is a core value!)
- Previous freelance or remote work experience.

Bonus points if you also have:

- Advanced proficiency in JavaScript frameworks like VueJS or React.
- Experience with e-commerce platforms or related APIs (WooCommerce, Stripe, PayPal, etc).
- Experience with DevOps or infrastructure management.

What we offer

- Working for a fast-growing bootstrapped company is a rare opportunity, one we consider a lifestyle choice rather than a job choice. Our positions are challenging, but also come with amazing advantages and fulfillment to those who earn them. Here’s what we offer.

- Competitive Salary.

- Work from your home. We’re spread out all over the world – United States, Africa, Ireland, Philippines, and more.
- Unlimited PTO after 60 days of employment. We encourage employees to take the time they need for vacation, to stay healthy, and to spend time with friends and family.
- We happily provide or reimburse software you’ll need as well as books or courses that promote continued learning.
- We give you the opportunity to solve challenging and meaningful problems that make a difference.
- Ability to work with some of the best people in the business through frequent interactions.
- And in case you were wondering: no politics, no b.s., and no jerks.


This is a remote position – our team is spread around the globe! Our home base is in Utah, USA, so company operating hours are 9am – 5pm MST (UTC -7). While full coverage is not a requirement, you must be available during a portion of the day.

Inclusion Statement

At Strategy11 (Formidable Forms, Business Directory Plugin), we strive to have the broadest possible view of diversity, going beyond visible differences to include the background, experiences, skills, and perspectives that make each person unique.

Strategy11 is proud to be an equal opportunity workplace and is committed to equal employment opportunity regardless of race, color, ancestry, religion, sex, national origin, sexual orientation, age, citizenship, marital status, disability, gender identity, Veteran status, or any other basis protected by federal, state, or local law.

Thanks and we look forward to hearing from you!
