Web developer in South-East England
June 15, 2007 8:08 AM

Hey! We're looking for web developers to work on the next version of our open source social networking framework (and the projects that spring out of it, which are both end-user websites and intranet facilities).

We are:

  • An innovative Oxford based start-up, hard at work bringing social networking to business, education, non-profits and anyone we can make more efficient.
  • Committed to open source software and business methodologies.
  • A friendly and relaxed, but driven, small team.
  • Interested in dynamic people who bring something new to the table.
You are:
  • Creative but level-headed.
  • Both able and willing to clearly share your own ideas as well as listen to and discuss other people's with an open mind.
  • A genuine web user who understands net culture, is excited by the medium and sees its wider implications.
  • An old hand at programming for LAMP environments, with some experience of object orientated methodologies. Bonus points for additional experience with any of CakePHP, the Yahoo! UI library or similar, and IIS. We care much more about what you've done than what certificates you have: show us the web apps you're most proud of.
  • Friendly and relaxed, but efficient.
  • A fluent English speaker.
  • Happy with both telecommuting and working from the office.
  • Willing to work at a company called "Curverider", with a largely non-violent attitude towards people who use words like "folksonomy".
To apply:

Send us your CV, preferably in PDF or a common wordprocessor format, to us at info@curverider.co.uk. Also include a brief covering letter about you, a website URL that represents you (eg a Facebook profile), a web application you've written and the answers to these six questions, including as much or as little detail as you think is necessary:
  1. Describe, in English, a simple user login mechanism, including potential security risks and how to overcome them.
  2. What is AJAX? How does it work? When shouldn't you use it?
  3. Explain inheritance.
  4. Pick three community websites and describe their relative merits.
  5. What, for you, are the most important aspects of a web application?
  6. Register with http://eduspaces.net/ and explore the system. How would you improve it?

payscale: £25,000
job type: full-time
