Attention to detail is one of our core values! This is your chance to stand out :)

OptinMonster is the #1 most powerful conversion optimization toolkit in the world - trusted by over 1,200,000+ websites. We are a SaaS product and also have unique apps/plugins that connect that OptinMonster to WordPress, Shopify, and BigCommerce.

OptinMonster is part of the Awesome Motive family of products which includes TrustPulse, WPForms, MonsterInsights, SeedProd, WP Mail SMTP, RafflePress, Push Engage, and more. We also run a suite of popular blogs including WPBeginner, the largest free WordPress resource site for beginners.

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 to completion. Our developers "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. As a remote company, 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.
  • You take pride in the quality and craftsmanship of your work rather than just doing it to get it done. The last 2% is as important to you as the first 98%.

Common responsibilities include (but are not limited to):

- Triaging bugs and enhancements that come into GitHub.
- Providing technical support to our success teams and to customers.
- Scoping, writing, and testing new product features and addons.
- Communicating with the team and supporting your peers using chat, audio, and video.
- Reviewing peers’ code and functionality for bug fixes and new features, and providing feedback.
- Managing deadlines and owning projects from start to finish, including ongoing progress communication.
- Version control via git, e.g. tagging/branching/merging.

Bonus points if you also have:

- Experience writing technical documentation.
- Experience creating/managing build systems.
- Dev-ops experience.
- Written a full-stack Vue or React app.
- A deep understanding of Redux for React and/or Vue.
- Developed/implemented an SSO (Single Sign On) application.
- Developed applications with integration across many siter/servers.
- Worked with Oauth applications/integrations.
- Experience working with CLI/bash scripts.


Here are the skills you'll need:

  • A strong understanding of the Web basics including HTTP, HTML, and CSS (SaaS a plus).
  • Strong familiarity with JavaScript languages and frameworks (React, VueJS, jQuery, ES6 etc). Knowing React/VueJS is a huge plus (mention it if you do).
  • Advanced proficiency with PHP and MySQL, including modern PHP practices (OOP, autoloading, namespacing, traits, interfaces, etc).
  • Experience working with third-party APIs (Eg Google Analytics, Stripe, Drip, Zapier, etc).
  • Good understanding of WordPress plugin architecture and engineering.
  • Ability to use and extend build tools like gulp and webpack.
  • Familiarity with package managers such as NPM and composer.
  • The ability to iterate and ship ideas quickly.
  • Exceptional troubleshooting abilities.
  • Must be comfortable with customer-facing roles including support and documentation.
  • Ability to keep complex ideas and features simple. (Simplicity is a core value!)
  • The ability to juggle multiple projects and timelines.
  • Extremely organized and able to manage time effectively.
  • Excel in a team environment and able to communicate clearly with your peers.

  • Paid maternity and paternity leave.
  • 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.
  • Custom Branded laptop at your five-year anniversary.
  • We cover all costs of company travel (including our annual all-company retreat and mini-team meetups).
