Click here to watch a video by Mark at Autism Parenting Magazine:

Autism Parenting Magazine improves the quality of life for families affected by autism all around the world. We release a monthly magazine, run bi-annual summits and release courses to help parents.

The company consists of a diverse team of all ages, backgrounds, faiths and locations, spread across the UK, USA, Philippines, South Africa and Eastern Europe. There are 12 full-time staff members and multiple freelancers, with everyone working completely remotely.

Their work is fun - sometimes demanding, but always satisfying. The company organises weekly team meetings and 1on1s via Zoom. While this is a fast-paced environment, they do fun things and try to get all the team members to connect with one another. You will have the opportunity to work in a rapidly growing company with great career and learning opportunities. The ideal candidate should be able to grow and flourish in the fast-moving environment of the magazine, embracing change with a can-do attitude.

If you want to be a part of a passionate group of people, enthusiastic about growing the magazine and growing their career, this may be the perfect place for you!.

Right now, the company is looking for a Dev Ops Engineer to take ownership of the existing tech infrastructure and security surrounding their website and cloud infrastructure. As the company grows, they need a dedicated individual to handle all tech problems, freeing up other members of the team to work on projects.

More specifically, you will be responsible for:

  • Updating plugins and software with the latest security patches
  • Investigating potential issues on major upgrades, testing on staging sites and deployment to live
  • Troubleshooting problems with website and other software issues
  • Configuring security software and firewalls
  • Ensuring good levels of security are maintained and threats are stopped promptly
  • Understanding the operation of all of our systems in order to assist with upgrades and staying up to date with the latest technologies and solutions
  • Deploying and administering software upgrades and configurations
  • Performing website speed and user interface optimisations
  • Development of disaster recovery plans
  • Configuring WordPress software and themes
  • Taking point on software migrations
  • Managing tech change within the business
  • Producing SOPs for the correct operation of the tech team
  • General webmaster and systems administrator responsibilities

You will have a chance to work with an amazing group of individuals, improving the quality of life for many thousands of families around the world, at the same time working in a fast-paced, tech-focused environment with lots of challenges to solve and technologies to learn. The role will be reporting to the Operations Manager and interacting with the COO, CEO, Customer Support and Web teams.

During the first few weeks, you will learn more about the tech stack the company uses and you will have support from both the Operations Manager and the CEO, to enable handover and to act as an escalation point in terms of issues. Specific training on certain technologies can be arranged as needed.

This is a full-time role, and ideally, you will work UK business hours - although there is some flexibility to start earlier or later in the day, as long as the core hours align. There also needs to be some overlap with the US time zone and occasional out-of-hours support for big promotions.

The company is looking for someone who can work independently while presenting big changes or risks to management in a way that is easy to understand. You need to have solid experience working in a similar environment, having been "battle tested" and shown to overcome obstacles that affect downtime or security.

To be a successful candidate, you need:

  • 3-5 years of experience working with Dev Ops, Systems Administration or Development
  • Good interpersonal and communication skills
  • Excellent knowledge of WordPress and web/network architecture (Htaccess and other config files)
  • Excellent knowledge of web-based security solutions (Securi, Wordfence or other WAF)
  • Good experience with Speed optimizations (CDNs and server-side caching, Nitropack, Cloudflare or other speed optimization plugins)
  • Ability to troubleshoot network issues, thorough understanding of DNS
  • Understanding of Unix shell & Mysql
  • Some understanding of programming or scripting languages
  • The ideal candidate has a computer science degree or some other tech-based certification.

Bonus points for understanding:

  • Membership plugins (digital access pass or other)
  • PHP
  • CSS
  • Javascript
  • Thrive plugins
  • Asana, Trello or Basecamp
  • Stripe, PayPal recurring payments
  • Paypal IPNs
  • SCA - secure customer authentication

You also need to be organized, attentive to detail and an effective communicator, with the ability to think logically and perform under pressure. Along with this, it’s very important to have emotional intelligence. If you tick all the boxes of the company’s core values - Integrity, Coachability, Accountability, Drive for Results, Professionalism - go ahead and apply!

What’s in it for you?

  • $2000 - $3000* per month
  • Full-time & fully remote
  • Annual leave of 1 hour per every 16 hours worked
  • Sick Leave of 1 hour for every 80 hours worked
