NY Times looking for a WordPress developer

September 23, 2006 — 3 Comments

Michael over at the Solostream blog posts that the NY Times is looking for a WordPress developer. As much as it’s nice to know that even a huge MSM company like the NY Times group is using WordPress, the criteria is a bit rough, in particular “2-3 years experience developing and maintaining WordPress blogs”. That would mean you’d have to have started developing for WordPress prior to September 2004. Given WordPress didn’t really take off in a huge way prior to the MT 3.0 launch in mid 2004 it’s pushing things, and even looking at the Whois record for WordPress, the domain was only registered in March 2003…ie, WordPress itself is only 3 1/2 years old! Getting someone with 3 years experience is well….a very big ask indeed 🙂
