Consulting

Over the last 5 years as a VIP Developer, Engineering Team Lead and Director of Technology at WordPress.com VIP, I’ve had the privilege of working on some of the largest WordPress sites in the world. I worked with clients on the architecture of their large-scale, enterprise WordPress sites, enabling them to serve billions of page views.

Stéphane brings a great attitude to his work. He is always looking to provide a solution to the problem at hand without sacrificing performance, security, or the long-term maintainability of the code that implements it. I worked with him on a number of projects over the last few years and each time have been impressed with both his attitude and problem solving abilities.

I’m currently available to do consulting for WordPress projects. Organizations that would benefit the most from my services include those that:

“Having worked with Stéphane for several years I can vouch for him as a thorough expert in WordPress performance. He was a mentor to me for a long time and taught me an immense amount. The knowledge he imparted helped me support some of the most high profile sites on the web, often alongside him, ensuring their stability in the face of huge demand.”

Phil John – Enterprise WordPress Engineer at Automattic
  • receive millions of page views monthly;
  • have sites with recurrent performance problems;
  • must withstand large sudden spikes in traffic (infrastructure providers, political parties, organizations with large single day events);
  • are designing a new enterprise WordPress rollout;
  • are embarking on a major refactoring of their WordPress codebase.

Stéphane Boisvert has been an amazing asset for our team over the past 3 years I’ve been with USA Today Sports. He will go out of his way to understand “what problem we are trying to solve” instead of simply deploying something that works. Quite often, we will get a suggestion we never thought of, saving us countless hours of development work.

I bring 10 years of WordPress experience, all of it in high stakes situations with performance, security and code maintainability being the most important aspects.

“For over five years and multiple publishers and projects, Stéphane has always been there to support us in all levels of technical support. He has never provided advice that we have turned away; making him a critical member of the team on the whole”
