I work for SiteSell and have been for almost 8 years. SiteSell is a long established (~1998) internet company. SiteSell offers a product called SBI! combining web hosting, site building tools, and e-business building guidance and a newer product called bizXpress providing e-business building guidance for Wordpress site owners. SiteSell's customers generally have more successful sites (i.e. more traffic and more revenue) than people who buy cheap $5/mo hosting with no guidance. SiteSell has been an excellent employer for me. That's why I've been working with them for so long and have immediately said "no thanks" to all recruiters from Facebook, Google, Yahoo!, Microsoft, Twitter, etc.
The reason we are hiring is that we need more people working on the new site building tools that we have developed and continue to enhance. We have some reasonably complex tools. We have several tools that fit the "one page app" label that have been written in the MVC style before any of the currently popular MVC frameworks were released. For example, you can see a video of our page buiding tool.
The technical skills required are
- browser feature testing and workarounds
- ability to work without jQuery
- Mac OS X
Without any doubt, the much more important qualities required are
- willingness to take direction
- team player
- plenty of energy and enthusiasm
A technically great developer who causes stress within the team and company is not worth it for me. Far better would be a developer who is a joy to work with, who has good basic knowledge, and who learns quickly.
SiteSell is a great place to work. I'm confident that someone with the right technical skills and right attitude will find a good home programming with us.
