We’re Hiring a Front-End Developer

Working here is as fun as shopping here!

We’re quite excited about 2012 at Newspaper Club. It feel like there’s a real head of steam building behind us at the moment, and it’s time to start pushing ahead with some of our big plans.

But it’s not going to be easy and we’re going to need some help to do this.

We’re looking for a talented front-end developer to work full-time alongside Tom, our co-founder and engineer, in our London office.

In case you’re new here: we help anyone make and print their own newspapers. We believe the web is too important to be left to screens, and that newsprint is a highly evolved technology too. We build things that combine the two, using each medium for what it’s best at.

Amongst a number of things, we’ll be completely overhauling ARTHR, our tool that lets anyone make a paper in their browser, developing a print-on-demand marketplace, and building a number of products and services that use personalised newsprint in completely new ways.

Things like the Postcode Paper we built for Data.gov.uk. Or the prototype of the Telepaper, which turns Readability + Instapaper content into a delivered newspaper.

We like people who can think like both a designer and an engineer, with a good sense of product intuition. We’re especially interested in folks with experience building complex Javascript web apps, or (dare I mention) Webkit development.

Enthusiasm, attitude and interest counts more than years of experience. We’d like to see things you’ve made and code you’ve written.

Our London office is in a small co-working space in Shoreditch, next to Moo, with a handful of interesting folks like the Really Interesting Group, MakieLab, IRCCloud and others. We believe in having fun, doing work we’re proud of, and going home on time.

If you’re interested, drop us a line at jobs@newspaperclub.com, with a note about yourself and links to things you think we’d find interesting (eg. Github account, CV or portfolio).
