Role expectations and responsibilities will align with short-, mid-, and long-term goals

As a senior PHP developer at OnTheGoSystems, your role will encompass short-term, mid-term, and long-term goals. These goals are designed to help you acclimate to our codebase, work on challenging projects, and contribute to the growth of our products.

Short-term goals:

In the short term, we expect you to become familiar with our extensive codebase, which consists of interconnected components developed using various languages and techniques. This will require adaptation to new programming structures and understanding the complexity of our system.

This task is extensive and will require ongoing effort to ensure the long-term stability and quality of our product. Additionally, you will be responsible for tracking and previewing changes from the WordPress platform and assessing how they impact the compatibility of our plugins.
