DevOps Engineers


We’re looking for at least one full-time DevOps Engineer with WordPress experience to join our existing team.

You can work from absolutely anywhere – we’ve got folks scattered around the world and a main office in Melbourne, Australia.

If you love building cloud services, are excited about taking on the infrastructure for Edublogs, one of the top five blog networks on the web, our CampusPress managed WordPress hosting service, and working with a crack crew at WPMU DEV – then this is for you.

In this role, you’ll be migrating large and complex WordPress sites of well-known organizations to our hosting environments. You’ll work collaboratively with software developers to deploy and operate our systems. Help automate and streamline our operations and processes. You will build and maintain tools for testing, deployment, monitoring, and operations. And you will troubleshoot and resolve issues in our various dev, test and production environments.

You’ll be managing on a day-to-day basis our extensive systems across Amazon Web Services, Peer1, Digital Ocean, CloudFlare and beyond, ensuring insanely good uptime, staggering speeds, ridiculous redundancy and demonstrating and developing your high-performance, high-throughput website operation experience.

In return (and if outside Australia) we’ll offer great rates with the security of a full-time contract, 20 days paid leave every year, long service leave and we’ll even take you on an all expenses paid international company trip every few years.

Come and work with us for the chance to push the envelope with what WordPress can do, to be in at the start of some incredible projects and to enjoy your work more than you previously ever thought was possible. Promise.


Full Stack UX Designer


You know that dream UX design job?

The one where you get to take the reins, impose your vision, create beautiful things every day, that are loved and used by millions of people every month.

Working with great front and back-end developers, so you can focus on intuitive and elegant digital product experiences with a dash of straightforward beauty.

In a fantastic new office, rammed with dual screen iMacs, up by the Shrine in South Melbourne, where we’re expanding our local design and creative team to work with our existing 70-odd-people-around-the-globe-setup.

To work on making everything WPMU DEV better, and better, and better.

And Edublogs, and CampusPress, and cool new stuff we haven’t even thought of yet… hey, got any ideas?

Oh, and you’ll thoroughly enjoy the relaxed culture, friday lunches, massively non-hierarchical setup and opportunity to come up with and drive forward the things that you care about most.


Blog Contributors


We’re looking for awesome writers to join our WPMU DEV Blog team as ongoing contributors.

The WPMU DEV Blog is the largest online resource for quality WordPress tutorials, publishing informative, creative and in-depth articles that cover recent developments within the industry to more than 1.5 million visitors each month.

We work with writers all over the world and our current team is made up of developers, freelancers and bloggers who all specialize in WordPress. From in-depth tutorials, to opinion pieces, personal stories and product/service reviews, this is your chance to dig deep and have your work read by millions of people.

The contributor role involves:

  • Writing in-depth, comprehensive articles about a variety of WordPress topics, from security and optimization to development and Multisite,
  • Meeting weekly publication deadlines, and
  • Regularly coming up with new and exciting ideas for WordPress-related articles.

It doesn’t matter where you’re based, location is unimportant. The important thing is that you’re communicative, whether that be over email or Slack. We’re a distributed company, after all.

How many articles you would like to write for us is entirely up to you, though we are looking for individuals with personality who can write quality stuff with expertise and authority. We will not be accepting applications from writing syndicates.

We get a lot of interest from people who want to write for our blog. In order to maintain the high quality of our articles, however, we need you to show us what you’ve got by jumping through a couple of hoops. We need two things from you:

  • URLs to any articles or examples that demonstrate your skills as a writer and WordPress expert, and
  • Three solid suggestions for articles you are interested in writing and could see being published on our blog. Please include a possible title and an outline for the structure of each of your articles.

Please include your URLs and article suggestions with your application below. If you neglect to include these required details, you will not receive a reply because you didn’t read this job ad :) (and if you’re reading this right now, awesome! About 90% of people don’t!)

When we review your articles/examples, we’ll be looking for:

  • Clarity – How well you are able to explain a topic
  • Comprehensiveness – Does your article thoroughly cover the topic?
  • Spelling and grammar – This is basic stuff. We’re looking for writers who can provide quality work
  • Native-level written English

All of our contributors are paid, but just how much depends on the length and quality of your articles. Before we publish your work, we always make sure both sides agree on the publishing and payment conditions. Of course, you are welcome to include a link to your website on your author profile, should you join our writing team. This is a great opportunity for you to engage with people who read your articles, build your reputation in the WordPress community, and grow your social media following.

Looking forward to hearing from you!


We're always looking out for superheroes!


Are you fed up with the same routine, day in, day out… wake up, work, eat, rinse, repeat… yawn… dreaming of making a change, making a difference and doing something you enjoy from anywhere in the world you fancy?

Stop dreaming about tomorrow, start making a difference today. Join our team and be the hero you’ve always known yourself to be!

The role will involve:

  • Supporting our awesome WPMU DEV members
  • Hanging out in the forums being massively friendly, helpful and useful
  • Assisting with and solving all manner of WordPress questions, with style!
  • Co-ordinating with developers over bugs, features and cool new stuff
  • Being an active part of the Incsub team
  • Sharing cat photos, amusing videos and animated gifs

Location, that is unimportant, as long as you are available, enthusiastic, committed, passionate, and know your WordPress.

Reach for the skies, we have a heap of many challenges and opportunities for those who aspire to do more!
