Job Type


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.

About You

We're seeking a WordPress technician to join the team, taking responsibility for keeping our clients’ sites updated. 

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

As part of our WordPress Support Plans, we perform updates on hundreds of client sites each week. You’ll be in charge of updating WordPress core and plugins on a range of high-traffic sites — doing your best to minimize interruption to the sites, and quickly fixing any issues that  may arise after those updates.

We don’t rely on “auto-updates” — instead, we employ a “human-managed” safe update process, making sure that our clients’ sites are still working properly after updates are performed. Therefore, you should have a strong understanding of WordPress and the updates process, and the confidence to troubleshoot any issues that may arise related to updates.

Your day will generally include determining which new WordPress updates are available, reviewing change logs and bug reports for potential issues, determining which updates should be run, communicating with the team about the latest news, actually running the updates, and doing post-update quality assurance testing.


  • 401(k) with matching contributions.
  • Sick leave, family leave, and bereavement leave.
  • Technology Budget
  • Work anywhere in the United States with fast & reliable internet.
  • Flexibility in hours – while we do need you to work during our regular business hours, this position will enjoy a certain level of flexibility in self-managing work times.
  • Bonus for speaking or volunteering at your local WordCamp (or we’ll cover your cost to attend).
  • Small company means you have room to grow and make your mark. Depending on your experience, aptitude, and desire there is potential for advancement within the company.
  • We’re nice people to work with (and are really good at posting awesome giphys on Slack).
