Job Overview

Agileana is a lean, agile team that works hard to deliver value to our clients, in a friendly and respectful working environment. The people at Agileana are friendly, kind, and funny. We believe in a work/life balance, flexible work schedule, honesty, transparency, and a positive attitude all around.

We are in search of a WordPress team leader for our small portfolio of WordPress clients. Most of the clients are in a long-term operations and maintenance mode. However, we do pick up some new WordPress projects that are either a redesign/redevelopment, or perhaps a migration from Drupal to WordPress, or a new out-of-the-box WordPress project. Our own website - www.Agileana.com - is also powered by WordPress and needs care and feeing as well.

The WordPress Team Leader is the first responder to client issues and inquires. She/He will analyze requirements, prioritize issues, delegate tasks, and/or resolve issues directly. As the team grows, you will help identify, recruit, and hire new talent. And, you may also help grow the business unit as well by maintaining positive working relationships with our clients, seeking out new clients, and responding to incoming requests for proposals.

The right candidate is highly organized, enjoys working in a fast-paced environment, has strong project management skills, is passionate about web and information technology, and is considered a WordPress expert, guru, or ninja.
