NerdPress provides maintenance and support for hundreds of WordPress sites. The majority of our clients are food bloggers, though we also have clients in other niches, including crafting, e-commerce, philanthropy, non-profits, and more.
We're currently a team of seven, and work as a close-knit crew on customer support, customer onboarding, coding, and anything else that needs doing.
We're seeking a high-level technical support engineer with deep WordPress knowledge and outstanding communication skills to join our client support team. We’re looking for someone who has a love of learning, enjoys teaching, and gets excited and energized by solving problems.
To be successful in this position, you'll need to be proactive, pay attention to details, stay calm under pressure, and get excited and energized by solving problems... and love WordPress, of course!
About the Position
The main focus of this position is client support and troubleshooting customer issues with WordPress sites. In general, you should have a strong understanding of both the back end and front end of WordPress development, and the confidence to troubleshoot any issue that arises.
You’ll be answering customer support inquiries on a wide range of topics, all related to our WordPress Support Plans. That may include giving advice and answering questions, or it may require performing small technical tasks directly on the sites. Examples include minor CSS customizations; providing plugin recommendations and best practice advice; basic PHP editing (implementing code snippets or small customizations), SEO advice, speed optimization recommendations, and lots more.
