We’re hiring – Full-time Commercial Manager position available in Glasgow

We’re expanding our team in Glasgow. If the following job description sounds like you please get in touch – we’d love to hear from you.

Commercial Manager (Glasgow, £22-25k and bonus per annum)

We help people from all over the world make their own newspapers and we’re working on new ways to make printing from the web easy and useful. We’re into our third year but have already made thousands of customers happy, printing over a million newspapers on the way. We’ve even won a few awards. Our rapid growth means we’re looking for someone to join the team who can quickly take on a number of important commercial tasks. But we also want someone with the potential to grow with us.

We’re based in two places: London, where we do the programming, and Glasgow, where we run our operations. The role is based in our Glasgow office and involves looking after our customers and managing our receipts and payments. We’ll also want you to keep a close eye on orders, analysing the facts and figures. Quite soon we’ll want you to take an active role in developing the business.

We’d like someone who’s resourceful, practical, insightful, flexible and with excellent communication skills (it almost goes without saying that we also want someone who’s friendly, enthusiastic and enjoys working in a small, close team). We’d prefer a graduate with a bit of work experience; any degree subject might do. It’s essential that you have an interest and familiarity with the web and its business models. It would also be very handy if you were familiar with Excel.

Does this sound like the sort of thing you’d enjoy? Please send a cv and a short covering email to gareth@newspaperclub.com by 24 April 2012.

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).
