Work With Us! Web Developer

by 7

We need a web developer to help us rapidly develop our already world leading website.

developer

We are not just looking for a developer who will do as they are told but someone with a creative flair and enthusiasm for the subject matter who can step up and suggest new ways of delivering our world class cycling content to more readers through an ever increasing array of devices and technologies.

You will join the existing small team of developers and be expected to play an active part in future plans and development of Singletrack magazine and grit.cx. You’ll get a desk with a computer on it, a phone (with direct dial for pizza delivery and diet coke) and all the coffee you can drink. Plus you’ll get to play with bikes a bit, since they are all over the place round here. We have dull stuff too, like regular wages, incentives, pensions and perks. We all went go karting last week, which was pretty cool too. But the best part is the people you will get to work with every day who think working for Singletrack is pretty bloody ace (in the main, all things considered).

We’ve got the new web dev’s desk set up and ready to go

    I can use Facebook and like bikes, I’m a shoe in for this.

    When can you start? 🙂

    On reflection, I respectfully decline.

    I can’t stand coffee.

    I didn’t drink coffee until I started here. It’s very good though.

    I’m looking forward to the new forum!

    Is it 2009 all ready?
