Position Title & Overview:

We're looking for an engineer to work on Trellis our WordPress theme framework. The goal of Trellis is to provide an out-of-the-box solution for blazing fast sites, with emphasis on PWA experiences, optimized CSS, and built-in image optimization. This role is best suited for someone who enjoys learning about and working on all aspects of a product, as the Trellis product suite encompasses both an expansive WordPress theme framework and a set of related cloud services.

Trellis uses a wide set of tools. The WordPress theme includes vanilla Javascript and Preact (user-facing functionality), PHP, and React (admin dashboard and WordPress Gutenberg blocks) while the cloud services are primarily built in Node. We also use tools like Webpack, Composer, and Circle CI. It's not important that you love and deeply understand every tool in this stack, but it's important that you're committed to rolling up your sleeves and collaborating effectively with your teammates who are working in other areas of the stack. You'll be supported by dedicated support engineers, a dedicated product manager, a QA team, and other engineers with extensive experience with these tools.

We're working in a mature code base that has some challenges, chief among them sparse testing coverage and documentation. We're actively working on improving this and more, but we're doing it iteratively and in the context of product requests. Ideal candidates will have both an intrinsic desire to improve the code and a pragmatic approach to accomplishing this while continuing to ship. We value consistency and sustainable effort, not sacrificing stability or our health to check a box.

This is a very collaborative role that requires excellent communication skills. You'll be working with a team of 3-5 developers as well as directly with QA, product, and support on a regular cadence. We have brief daily stand-ups and other bi-weekly scrum meetings. The happiness and health of our engineers is a top priority of Mediavine, and we want to ensure you are challenged, thriving and enjoying the work you do and the people you get to do it with.

Essential Responsibilities:

  • Contribute to the core Trellis theme, as well as child themes
  • Work with our design and product teams to optimize user experiences
  • Implement strategies to automate and optimize development
  • Work with our QA team to ensure that releases meet requirements
  • Make architectural decisions related to new and existing features
  • Providing code reviews for teammates



  • Must currently live in the United States

You Have:

  • Deep understanding of WordPress, including the hook system and child themes
  • Experience writing custom WordPress blocks
  • Experience with object-oriented PHP
  • Experience with React
  • Experience with CSS preprocessors (we use SCSS)
  • Experience working with Git on teams
  • Experience working on a fast-moving and asynchronous remote team
  • A passion for code quality

Nice to haves:

  • Experience setting up Webpack configurations
  • Experience with CI/CD workflows (we use CircleCI)
  • Building against Lighthouse
  • Experience with Node for backend services
  • Experiences with service workers and PWAs
  • Using TDD, including WordPress testing frameworks
  • Ownership of/contributions to at least one published theme or core contributions to WordPress itself


  • Fully remote work environment
  • Travel opportunities (remember those?!)
  • Comprehensive benefits including 401k, Health, Dental, and Vision insurance
  • Learning allowance
  • Generous Vacation/Time off policies
  • Additional side benefits such as home-office upgrades, tuition reimbursement, paid gym memberships and wellness retreats, upgraded flights, cool swag and more
  • Company match charitable donations
