Finding WordPress talent is our talent.

Our story begins with two software developers who met at their day jobs and discovered they had quite a bit in common.

Chris McGrath and Albert Volkman founded WP Contractors to address their shared interest. Together with a team of ambitious go-getters, they built one of the world’s largest WordPress talent networks

We've built a WordPress network for contractors and employers alike

WP Contractors exists to solve the very issue AI and Chris noticed while working at a Seattle-based digital agency. Employers in the digital space struggled to hire WordPress talent.

There simply weren’t enough developers to fill open roles, and anyone good was already busy.

The solution? A platform where advice support, tools, and people can come together.
