    Market Realist is a NYC-based financial media start-up backed by a team of serial entrepeneurs, who have worked in senior roles at leading investment websites and top financial institutions on Wall Street.

    We are seeking a Lead WordPress Developer with responsibility to lead the ongoing development of new features and maintenance for our WordPress-based website. Key goals include developing product improvements and scaling the website while maintaining consistent site up-time and fast page-load times. The role involves management of a talented junior developer and working with our original developer (who has an advisory role at the company), but this is very much a hands-on role. We are looking for a dependable WordPress developer, who is also very comfortable with front-end coding and with MySQL.

    The lead developer must have a minimum 2 years of experience at a significant WordPress-based website and be based in the NYC area.

    Responsibilities:
    – Development of new back-end and front-end functionality for our website on the WordPress platform, according to product and design specifications
    – Meet goals for site uptime and page load times for a growing content website
    – Management of development environment, technical spec’ing and documentation
    – Liaison on development specs with internal (product, design, editorial) and external stakeholders (XML feeds, web host, data vendor)

    Requirements:
    – Excellent back-end experience with PHP, MySQL and WordPress
    – Strong front-end experience with HTML / CSS / Javascript
    – Experience building content feeds in XML and RSS
    – Experience with scaling requirements for large websites, e.g. caching techniques
    – Familiarity with common development tools, e.g. Github
    – Great communication skills
    – Development experience at a website with over one million monthly users
    – Startup experience preferred
    – Strong cultural fit for our team

    Compensation:
    $100K salary and meaningful equity as our #5 or #6 employee
