A personal note: Hi, I'm Peter Azuolas, the CTO mentioned below. I live in Honolulu, and would love to find someone local for the position.
SportsBlog.com is one of the fastest growing sports networks online, attracting more than 20m views per month and growing fast. In addition to its more than 15,000 fan-powered blogs, the network is home to numerous professional athlete blogs and thriving sports communities. In fact, more professional athletes blog with us than anywhere else online. And we’re just getting started.
The site is powered by our proprietary CMS and blogging platform that makes it easy for anyone to start a sports blog. This platform is in the middle of a major revamp, and we’re looking for an All-Star PHP developer (with full stack skills) to help bring it to the finish-line. As our first non-founder PHP Developer hire, you will be working closely with the CTO and will have a hand in shaping the tech behind SportsBlog.com (and the team that works on it!)
This is your opportunity to work in an dynamic, hyper-growth startup environment. Your work will be used by some of the biggest names in sports and by some of the most passionate fans out there. Although we have offices in New York and Nashville, this position is open to anyone in the US, as SportsBlog.com empowers its team to work from wherever they choose.

Where you will work:
Although we have offices in Manhattan and Nashville, SportsBlog.com empowers its team to work from wherever they choose. We have a completely cloud-based setup and rely on BaseCamp, Skype, Box and other tools to connect and collaborate. This allows our team to get the best work of their career done, and allows us to attract and keep only the best talent.
Our team members are distributed throughout the Valley, New York, Chicago, Nashville and Honolulu. You will be working primarily with our CTO who is based in Honolulu (and keeps HST hours), and with our Lead Front-End developer who is in Chicago.
We meet in person at least once a year at one of our offices, or at some place fun that we all agree on.
Compensation and Benefits:
SportsBlog.com offers competitive salaries, a vested stock incentive plan, and medical coverage. We also offer flexible hours, a fun working environment, the opportunity to work from home and paid time-off (including your birthday!). We are constantly working to add new benefits and we strive to keep our team happy and fulfilled.
