  1. If only I didn’t have enough on my plate already. Working for/with ET would be a crazy turn of events, considering all the stuff I learned scouring your forums when I first started coding.

    Whoever gets this position is going to be one seriously lucky individual.

  2. Nick, been using and adapting your themes for years now and would love to work with your team. I’ve got some room on my monthly schedule of hours, so while I know you won’t have any problems finding someone for the full time position, please let me know if you need someone to jump in and do some part time (~20 hours per week) development.

  3. Man how cool to see you guys growing. I have only been an ET member for a little less than a year but I already feel like part of the team. And I have cranked out several ET themed websites already. You guys are great.

    I will pass this on. I would be all over it but unfortunately I don’t have the experience and education you are looking for. Perhaps in a couple years :-)

    By the way, just started working on a side project for a friend of mine using the Divi theme and I just love it. http://greateststoryevertold.org/2014WP2/

    Keep up the great work. Fan for life!

  4. I have used many of your themes over the years and I think they are some of the finest themes on the market not to mention best value.

    Taking on a new developer obviously means that you are continuing to grow, which means we can all expect more great stuff in the future, so this is good news.

    I will pass this on to my developer colleagues for sure.

  5. Good!!! i’m just waiting new theme in here… so boring become member and nothing new themes long time in here!!!

    • Let me get this straight. You become a member, expect new themes immediately, and then complain when your fantasy is not fulfilled?

      Riiiiiiiight.

  6. How about a position for Marketing in Japan to help promote ET to the Japanese CMS Customer Base?

    Would love to help remotely from Tokyo!

  7. Hey, Nick! My name is Ana, I’m an Elegant Themes client (and a very happy one!) from Brazil. I work with communications and I told one of my clients the fact that you were recruiting remote talents to work with Elegant Themes team and we found that fascinating.

    This client has a platform called Workana. It’s one of the biggest remote work platforms in Latam, where remote work is still a remote possibility (get it? xD). It’s been growing, we’re finally getting into the coworking and hot desking trends, and it has been opening up the eyes of companies to the fact that hiring freelancers and remote workers improves their motivation and productivity – but we still have a long way to go.

    So, every time we get a chance, we like to interview businesses all over the world that have adopted remote workers or freelance workers to prove how much any business has a lot to gain from this new way of working. And we’d love it if Elegant Themes could be a part of this movement.

    We are very interested in interviewing you to learn more about how you adopted this method of hiring talents and i believe Elegant Themes would get awesome exposure out of it here in Latin America. Would you agree to let us interview you? Pretty please ;)

    Hope to hear from you, thanks so much for your time!
    And keep up the good work <3

  8. Maybe one day… I have a long way to go before I can even think to work with ET team, meanwhile let enjoy using the best wordpress themes all-round.
    And confirm that whoever gets this position is going to be one seriously lucky individual.

  9. Too bad I don’t know anything about coding or WordPress development, otherwise I would apply based on view out the window. Great themes, great blog posts. Keep up the good work.
