Do you love coding MediaWiki extensions in PHP and administering wikis?

Looking for a new challenge?

My team at Vistaprint is seeking an accomplished LAMP developer with experience in MediaWiki development and configuration. Come share your talents at a successful company where our global wikis are respected, critical resources. The challenges of a large, corporate wiki are quite different from those of public Internet sites (and quite interesting too): solving business problems, integrating with complex systems, making your co-workers more efficient through automation, measuring the success of solutions, etc.

The position is located in Lexington, Massachusetts (near Boston).

-       Truly outstanding PHP and JavaScript skills
-       Thorough understanding of MediaWiki template-writing and parser functions
-       Skilled in both Linux and Windows environments (commands like "paste filelist1 filelist2 | sed 's/^/mv /' | bash" should be simple for you)
-       Excellent communication skills, both written and oral

Other helpful, optional skills:
-       WordPress programming (plugins)
-       Any technical writing experience
-       Any teaching/training experience (developing or delivering training to technical audiences)

About Vistaprint: We are a global, profitable e-commerce company that makes real products you can hold in your hand. Last year we shipped 22.9 million orders to 11.4 million customers and had over $800M in revenue. The work environment is fun and challenging, and we're still growing fast.

I am the hiring manager for this position. Send resumes to dbarrett at vistaprint.com.
