Introducing the All New WPMU DEV Jobs & Pros Section
In the beginning there was a simple job board. It was really popular and got used a heap, but it was really pretty basic.
Still, our members loved it, it was a great way to find awesome WordPress developers to do custom work and for our members to get great freelancing gigs.Did you know you now you can try Jobs & Pros, our 100+ premium plugins and our other services absolutely FREE?!
So we decided it deserved some proper love… and today we’re pleased to announce our all new Jobs & Pros section.
Jobs & Pros
Jobs & Pros is dedicated entirely to our members, so if you would like to advertise your services or post a job request you’ll have to join WPMU DEV and become a member.
And once you’re in, we’ve got a lot of stuff ready for you right now, and even more coming soon.
If you are a developer we’ve got a bunch of stuff for you, too, including a brand new profile. Set yours up now.
Finding a Pro
Pros are also listed on our very cool listing page, Find a Pro.
We rank members in groups of 15 based on the points they have received and then randomize the groups.
The more points you get, you higher you rise in the rankings and the more likely members will contact you to complete their job.
There’s also a handy search bar so you can quickly find the Pro you’re looking for.
Posting a Job
We’ve made it super easy for members to post jobs, such as tweaks and customizations.
Developers looking for work can quickly glance through the job listings and get in touch with members they would like to work with.
With our nifty filter, you can specify your price range so only the jobs that match your rates appear in the listing.
We’ve already got dozens of jobs listed for everything from customizing our Appointments + plugin to configuring Multisite and advanced MarketPress tweaks.
Posting a job couldn’t be easier. And, of course, WPMU DEV members can post an unlimited number of jobs at no extra cost.
Just click on Post a Job and fill out our handy form to quickly post a job. Add a brief description so Pros can get an idea of what you’re looking for and don’t forget to add your budget range. It also helps to add examples if you have any.
We’ve got five categories for job listings – BuddyPress, General WordPress, Plugins and Code, Themes and Design, and WordPress Multisite.
More Cool Stuff Coming Soon
And we’ve got heaps of other cool things coming too, including:
- The WPMU DEV Academy – Where you can learn to become a top-notch developer.
- WPMU DEV Certification – Submit your work to us and we’ll assess it.
- Better Badges & Leaderboards – We’ll give you some great promotional opportunities.
- Other Stuff You Want – Let us know what other features you would like to see on the site.
Because we like to scratch our own itch, we are developing the whole Jobs & Pros platform for release as a brand new plugin so that you can run your own profiles based jobs and freelancer boards just like ours. Very cool!
