From the beginning One Day One Job has been built on top of WordPress. To many it’s simple blogging software, but it’s amazing how far you can take it with a little bit of tweaking. The problem with self-hosted WordPress (as opposed to WordPress.com) is that it requires running your own server. You can find a host that makes it easy to get started, but as soon as your site starts to grow, you’ll run into problem after problem. I used to spend at least a week’s worth of workdays every year worrying about server stuff (downtime, optimization, security, and all kinds of other details). That all changed when I moved my sites to WP Engine. They are an Austin, TX based company that “host tens of thousands of the 75 million WordPress sites and apps on Earth.” I’ve had almost zero downtime since I switched, but more importantly, I no longer worry about my server configuration (and I’m even paying less than I used to for hosting).
WordPress has become one of the dominant platforms on the web. In fact, nearly 1 in 5 sites are built on the software. That means that a lot of people who know nothing about server administration are running their own servers (that was me a year and a half ago). That’s a big part of the reason that WordPress gets slammed for poor performance and security. Most hosting companies just sit back and watch their users struggle while offering “support” for hundreds of different technologies. WP Engine focuses solely on WordPress. By carving out such a specific niche, they’re able to offer an outstanding customer experience and at the same time take advantage of a rapidly growing market. They’re standing out in a business that seemed to be largely commoditized. If you’d like to help even more people experience what publishing with WordPress should be like, visit WP Engine’s Careers page. Right now they have openings for:
I absolutely love WP Engine, so it’d be pretty cool to have an ODOJ reader working there and making sure that our experience continues to be top notch.
