In addition, provide feedback via regular 1-on-1 check-ins. You will need to be aware of the projects your team members are actively working on and provide the first level of support to your team.
We are a fully distributed team that primarily builds in PHP on the Magento and Drupal platforms for eCommerce and content management sites. Since we are fully remote, you can work from anywhere! We do require at least 4 hours of working time overlap with the Pacific time zone (PST) workday. As a highly client-focused organization, you will occasionally need to meet according to their schedule. We strive to give you plenty of time to focus on development.
