Are you great at what you do?
Are you a talented engineer, designer, project manager, or support technician with WordPress experience, excellent time management skills, and have an eye for detail? We’re always on the hunt for great talent. If you’re interested in being part of our team, check out our current openings and email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us why.
Would we want to work together?
These are the TYPE of people we’re looking for. Would you like to be part of our team?
Collaborators – At Event Espresso we all have our own assignments and deadlines but we’re very collaborative and help each other when we can or when it’s needed. We prefer people who are willing to offer their advice to a colleague or customer rather than mind their own business. We err on the side of over-communicating.
Doers – Do you see a list of things that need to be done and feel the urge to get the work checked off your list? Are you committed to what you are responsible for doing? Can you stay focused on the task at hand to get things done quickly and thoroughly? At Event Espresso you won’t be pushing paper or making copies, you will be responsible and accountable for doing cool things that matter.
Perfectionists – Do you more often say: “Hey, it would be cool if this did that or if we did this!” or are you more likely to say “Let’s stay focused and get this finished and released then build upon it.”? There is a time and place for both approaches but we’d prefer to underpromise and over deliver. We encourage innovation and leadership every day (see below), but uncontrolled feature creep can derail projects. At Event Espresso, we want perfectionists who get the job done right the first time, then build from there.
Leaders – Do you get involved, or prefer to observe? There’s no limit on who (or how many) can play the leadership game so we’re looking for people who can take a stand for our customers and the WordPress industry to help raise the bar.
Innovators – Have you ever offered a feedback to a company about how you think they can improve their product or do you just get disgruntled and quit using the product or leave a bad review? We like people who have a vision for how to make things better. That might include suggesting changes to our internal processes that can make us more efficient or connect with a plugin or theme author and recommend ways that can make their product and Event Espresso work together better. If you’ve got ideas, we like to discuss them.
Helpful – Are you looking to do the minimum or do you prefer to do the most you can to make people happy? Think about how you treat customers and colleagues–would they call you helpful? It should go without saying that good customer service can make or break a business and that’s our expectation for everyone on our team. We expect that you treat everyone like how you would like to be treated.
Personalities – Do you raise Llamas, like to go camping, despise cell phones, etc.? We’re glad that we’re all different, and as long as you’re not too distracting you’re encouraged to be yourself.
