Wanted: Smart Cookies
We are looking for one or more smart cookies who can help us take our award-winning and highly popular news website to the next level.
They will be exceedingly talented and agile individuals, who will participate in designing and building database-driven websites on Linux (Debian) from end-to-end; in programming the back-end in object-oriented fashion, and building aesthetically pleasing front-end user interfaces using XHTML, CSS, JavaScript, Ajax and jQuery. Ideally, they can write neat copy and manipulate images, too. Experience with administering Linux servers is a plus.
New recruits will have a degree from a top university, preferably in computing science or mathematics, and/or equivalent work experience, and an explorer mentality. They will complement our strong IT team, based at our smart offices in West London.
