    The Wired.com team in San Francisco, California is seeking an architect level WordPress developer with 5-10 years experience to build and support wired.com, an award winning web site. The publication is looking for someone who not only writes great code, but who also has a keen interest and experience in developing great user experiences that are innovative yet practical.

    Wired is an established technology organization: it runs a cutting edge open source stack, develops locally on Mac hardware, and controls its versions with Mercurial.

    The position requires architecting and designing code that can be easily enhanced and reused rather than writing one offs. The ideal candidate will be innovative: interested in applying new techniques and design patterns, but also fluent in current best practices and standards. You'll be working with back end and front end engineers and product managers, rolling high-quality, reusable code for new products and features. You'll also be adding to and maintaining both site and shared library code, and giving input and direction to development processes.

    You should have:
    · Expertise in WordPress Theme Development
    · Experience adhering to WordPress.com’s best practices for code
    · Expertise in HTML, CSS, and cross-browser layout issues
    · Advanced JavaScript knowledge
    · Expertise in a JavaScript library (jQuery preferred) not just wiring up events on the DOM
    · Knowledge of JavaScript design patterns and current issues and practices
    · Awareness of the issues involved when creating shared code
    · Experience writing code for humans, not just machines
    · Experience with a server side framework and page templating (JSTL, .NET, RoR, etc)
    · Experience with version control (DCVS such as Git or Mercurial ideal)
    · Ability to consider and judge multiple approaches to a problem
    · Ability to mentor junior team members
    · Excellent communication skills
