Just a friendly tip regarding this:

“The successful candidate will be responsible for developing full featured WordPress themes using our existing object orientated PHP framework. This role also includes customer service duties, which will be performed via our technical support forum.”

You should never put your programmer handle the support too, not just for WP, but in pretty much any software business. He is just wasting time that he should spend doing his work. 70% of the support questions are simple questions that can be solved with some Googling or by someone with minimal technical knowledge. You should always try to have the so called ‘front-liners’ i.e. the support that is there to solve these basic questions while some critical bugs and issues will be forwarded to the programmers.

@wp_workshop, the developers who creates themes also doing some support is a norm here. No matter it is a Power Elite author or a beginner; it is good to have the original programmer’s hand on support for atleast some extent. One way, it directly gives the idea about support requests to the dev so that he/she can make the products optimized for minimal support. Other way, the support gets quality service with the involvement of someone who makes the product.

A good amount of support queries we receive require an in depth knowledge of theme development and hence only a theme dev can answer them. We have others looking after the “how do I change this color” sort of questions.

Additionally, sometimes when we have a deluge of support to handle, we expect all team members to help out, which is why it’s mentioned in the job description.

But thanks anyway.

Applications are still being accepted.

This is a full-time position and is hence not suitable for freelancers looking to supplement their existing clients list or out-sourcing teams/companies.
