Why work at WP Engine?
We Do The Right Thing
Growth is a double edged sword. When you scale rapidly, mistakes and problems that were once rare can become common, but with more clients and more income, there can be a temptation to just let it slide.
Not here. At WP Engine, we know that more clients means more customer service. In fact, our CEO, Heather Brunner still reads every single unsatisfactory review, prioritizing and organizing our problem solving to help us provide a better service every day.
Our Clients Love Us (And We Love Them)
In order to best serve our customers, we are always trying to walk in their shoes. By taking digital safaris through their sites or even purchasing their services, we gain valuable insights into what we can do to improve their experience with us.
In Astro’s case, our gamer heavy Technical Support department took it one step further, building an ongoing relationship that has resulted in Astro being the near-exclusive vendor for all our gaming audio needs. At WP Engine, we’re more than just a host, we’re a partner.
We Invest In Relationships
WP Engine takes internal career advancement and education seriously, and no department serves this purpose more effectively than Technical Support. Here, employees are bestowed with leadership, technical and customer service skills designed to take them to the top.
Ask our own Ryan Oeltjenbrun; he started in Technical Support and now holds it down in our Engineering Support division. At WP Engine, we will match you every step of the way towards personal and professional growth, in and outside of work.
Here, The Best Get Better
At WP Engine, we stand behind our products. But just as importantly, we stand behind our employees. Founder Jason Cohen met Mark Kelnar at WordCamp Austin in 2010. Intrigued by Mark’s WordPress optimizations, Jason convinced him to join the team.
The first engineer ever hired at WP Engine, Mark is still with us today, serving as Technical Architect. At WP Engine, we work to build relationships that last, on the inside as well as the outside.
We Do More Than Code
At WP Engine, we work hard and we play hard. So when we heard we could bring our video gaming skills to bear for a worthy charity, we knew we had to sign up. On October 25th, 30 of us donated and went head to head for 24 hours on behalf of Extra Life, a charity dedicated to helping children facing terminal diseases, like Cystic Fibrosis and Cancer.
If you are interested in bringing your A game on behalf of Extra Life, please consider donating. All donations are tax deductible, and ALL PROCEEDS go to help kids.
