Open-Source/Wordpress Assistant/Apprentice Wanted (paid/trade)
We are looking for someone who is interested in working on maintaining and updating WordPress-based (self-hosted) and other open-source software sites; troubleshooting/resolving technical issues; adding and configuring plugins; light theming and design; and even some coding (a huge plus, though not required to start). You should be willing to learn on the job, but will be supported through regular communication (message, email, phone, or Zoom) as you get a hang of our platform and the sites we are managing.
The paid part of this will involve keeping an eye on and making regular updates to a handful of client sites. This will pay $25-$50/hr depending on skill and experience. The trade part is negotiable and could involve a learning or creative exchange, if you are able and willing to help with managing Cosmos’ sites while we are still in a formative phase. In the process, you will also pick up marketable skills that could be offered elsewhere or through a future Cosmos Marketplace. Contact email@example.com for more info.
