Do You Want To Work With Yaro?

I’m looking for some talented people to work with me and my team. We are on a mission to help people break free from a job they hate, by packaging up their knowledge and sharing it online.

Are you suitable for one of these roles?

  1. WordPress Plugin Developer (paid): The Smart Slider is a plugin I released with Walter Haas to help bloggers. We’re looking for a WordPress plugin developer to become a key part of this project.
  2. Web Designer (paid): I’m looking for a confident web designer who has great CSS/HTML and some graphic design skills. See below for details.

Here are more details…

1. WordPress Plugin Developer

The Smart Slider (was Social Slider) was launched as a successful MVP and we are looking to grow it into a full blown company.

As our plugin developer you will become responsible for creating new features, fixing bugs and coding up the new sliders.

You should have experience developing successful WordPress plugins, with clean and efficient code. If you also have user interface design skill that is a plus, but not required.

In addition, these things should make sense to you:

* WordPress + WordPress Plugins Framework
* jQuery and JavaScript
* Social javascript libraries (Twitter / Facebook / Google)

Eventually this will become a full time position for the right person. It will take time for us to get to know you and your work, plus I want to make sure you take ownership of this role and see yourself not just as a worker, but as part of the foundation team.

There is potential for the Smart Slider to evolve into a startup, in which case you are getting in on the ground floor. I’m looking for someone who realizes the value of this, and also understands that during the present early phase the plugin does not deliver profit, so we cannot afford to pay top level developer rates.

The benefit of joining us now is that you’ll see the launch of a successful product (fingers crossed!) from an experienced internet marketer, and you will have the opportunity to shape the development of a tool that can help a lot of bloggers.

To Apply: Send an email to, and in a couple paragraphs tell me why you want this role. Please also send through examples of plugins you have developed. We will download your plugins and look at your hopefully beautiful code.

2. Web Designer With Some Graphic Design Skill

I’m looking for a web designer, who is strong in HTML/CSS, with some photoshop/graphic design skill in order to work on the blog, and also related pages.

Ideally, the right candidate will be:

  • An experienced WordPress developer
  • Highly skilled in CSS/HTML
  • Great with blog design and sales page layouts
  • Confident with graphic design and image manipulation; and
  • Familiar with Ontraport

The role will initially be part-time on a trial basis but has the potential to become full time for the right person. It will take time for us to get to know you and your work and make sure you take ownership of the role.

This role requires self-motivated individual who can work autonomously and think outside the box to find solutions. It is also important to have an eye for design and detail, be very adaptable and have a knack for picking up new web based tools.

If all of this sounds like you, I want to hear from you!

To Apply: Email and address your application to Laura. In a couple of paragraphs, please outline your salary expectations and why you’re the right person for this job. Please also send through examples of websites you have worked on in the past so we can see what you can do.


Things You Need To Know…

You will be working with me (Yaro) via Asana (project management) and Slack (chat). You can work from home or wherever on the planet you like, during whatever times you like, as long as the work gets done.

Unless specified otherwise, I am open to applicants from any country assuming you have reliable internet access and you are a good English communicator.

Reliability, communication, attention to detail, initiative and the ability to be creative with minimal direction are my top values. Do not apply if you can’t commit, communicate and create independently!

Students, Graduates, Eager-Beavers: if you are looking for practical experience and a peek inside how I run my business, or you are a budding blogger, social media or internet marketer, or entrepreneur, and are willing to work an internship, please apply.
