We’ve got an exciting journey ahead of us Over the next 10 years, Precision Nutrition will be expanding its world-class education and coaching services into a wide range of new fields, including yoga, group exercise, sports coaching, athletics, manual therapy and more.

Who we’re looking for

A savvy WordPress developer with a passion for building meaningful products

WordPress is in your blood. You’re a bright, talented full stack developer who knows WordPress and the requisite languages, like JavaScript, PHP, HTML, and CSS / SASS, not to mention tools like Composer Stack and Grunt.

You also have a handle on REST APIs, versioning, and source control. Bonus points if you’re familiar with SQL and the WordPress CLI.

You live on the cutting edge. You’re a code nerd. You spend your spare time researching and stay up to date on the latest and greatest best practices, systems, and tools.

We aren’t constantly throwing out our codebase and starting from scratch, but we do maintain it carefully so it doesn’t go out of date.

We’re using PHP 7.3 today, but we’ve always got an eye on the future and we want you to go there with us.

You thirst for efficiency. It’s not enough for you to write pretty clean code. You’re always optimizing your work, and you’re adept at seeking out ways to share code, components, and functionality across multiple applications.

You know the latest and greatest best practices, and you care about keeping things well-maintained. You’d rather do things the right way than the fast way, and you’re willing to stand up for yourself when the timeframe doesn’t match the requirements.

You’re self-motivated. Once you’re given a design for a page, you can run with it and don’t need a lot of direction to start building.

You have the uncanny ability to think on your feet, and fill in the gaps when you aren’t given super-specific guidelines.

You have strong self-structure and discipline, and have worked remotely either currently or in the past so you know the benefits and the challenges.

At the same time, you don’t silo yourself, and are always eager to learn more and share with the team.

You’re flexible. You aren’t married to your ideas, and you understand that things change as new information is made available.

You can switch gears at the drop of a hat and re-prioritize your work in a fluid environment, and you don’t sweat the small stuff because your eyes are on the big picture.

You can think on your feet. You aren’t married to your ideas, and you understand that things change as new information is made available.

You can switch gears at the drop of a hat and re-prioritize your work in a fluid environment, and you don’t sweat the small stuff because your eyes are on the big picture.

You’re resilient. Part of building a great product is being able to rework a design when it just doesn’t feel right. Not only do you have a good eye for UX design, but you’re ready and willing to tear your work down just to build it back up better.

If you’re (even mildly) offended when you receive feedback, this probably won’t be a good fit for you.

You’re a stellar communicator. You know how to convey the development process to the product manager, designer, and other people elsewhere in the organization in a way non-developers will understand.

You also know how to listen to their needs, synthesize and break those ideas down into actionable tasks, and integrate it into your current workflow.

You work hard to make a difference. This isn’t just another website. You get to work on interesting projects and solve complex problems that transform people’s lives.

You’re proud of the work you do and you’re willing to do whatever it takes to get it done.

You leave your ego at the door. You have integrity, talent, are outgoing, have a palpable excitement about the future, and don’t show it off.

You don’t have patience for shadiness, mediocrity, cynicism, and excessive "constructive criticism."

You care. You’ll be maintaining a product that has thousands of daily users, so you take great care of our data and systems like they are your very own.

We take the performance, reliability, security and privacy of our systems seriously, and we need you to as well.

What you’ll be doing

Turning our ideas into a compelling, functional product

Your mission is simple : take our vision and break it down into actionable tasks that lead to a fantastic, user-focused website. That includes :

  • Weekly sprints. The team will meet with the product manager and designers every week to turn their ideas into tickets for the development team.
  • The bulk of your day-to-day work will consist of working through a JIRA board (and helping other devs with their tickets when needed).

  • Meeting regularly with folks across the company. We do a daily check-in with all developers, so everyone knows what they’re working on.
  • You may also meet with smaller project teams as a representative of the dev team, helping to plan new features and implement them.

    One day you could be working on a nutrition calculator for the marketing team, while another you might run an experiment to see which version of a page loads faster and works better.

    If you can field the occasional support question, all the better.

  • Peer reviewing other code. We help each other out at PN, which means you’ll review code written by other devs in the organization not just on your team, but across other teams and help address bugs as needed.
  • Maintaining our existing applications. We pride ourselves on our solid, well-maintained codebase that means running the latest version of important libraries and other dependencies.
  • We aren’t constantly rebuilding from scratch just to use the latest toys, but we don’t want to feel stuck behind, either.

  • Learning new skills and mentoring others. We never want our team members to feel stagnant in their career, so you’ll have time to expand your development repertoire and take on the responsibilities that best fit your skills.
  • If you have the experience, you’ll even get a chance to mentor other developers as well, so they have the same opportunity.

    A few important caveats

    This is a dream job, if you’re the right person for it.

    Must-Have #1 : You must be experienced. You have 10+ years of experience as a web developer, and you have a portfolio of projects you’ve seen to completion to show for it.

    Ideally, you’ve worked on projects that vary in scale large-scale corporate sites are ideal. You’ve worked on an Agile team using Kanban or Scrum.

    Must-Have #2 : You work well on a team. You’ll need to be self-motivated, but that doesn’t mean you’ll be working entirely on your own.

    You like being part of a collaborative team that can debate different approaches respectfully without getting defensive.

    When a team member needs a hand, you make time for them, knowing they’ll do the same for you. And you’re an excellent communicator who isn’t afraid to speak up and knows when to listen.

    Must-Have #3 : You're accountable. You take ownership of your work, and enjoy making a difference. At PN, you have the ability to leave an impact both on our codebase and on people's lives.

    You'll have the freedom to make a lot of your own decisions, as long as you stand by them.

    Reason #2 : You can work from anywhere.

    Reason #4 : You’ll always feel supported.

    In a regular office, it’s easy to feel like a hamster in a wheel, powerless to change things. At Precision Nutrition, we work as a team to overcome issues & barriers that stand in each other’s way, and we treat each other with enthusiasm, compassion, and care.

    Reason #5 : You’ll never be bored.

    People often come to Precision Nutrition after hitting a plateau in their old jobs. At PN, you’ll get the chance to conquer new challenges, learn from the best, and reach thrilling new heights of personal and professional growth.
