It’s been a long, hot summer. And busy! As usual, I’m in trouble of having the worst update record of any blog. Or maybe I’m just falling into the overwhelming statistic of deadbeat bloggers.
Well, now I have a pretty good post. We’re hiring! If you know of anyone who would be good for the following position, please send them my way. It’s the perfect position for a smart PHP developer with some leadership skills who also likes to hike and ski (as it’s based in Colorado).
Development Manager, Social Networking / Web 2.0 platform
We’re a small, creative team on the Front Range of sunny Colorado that creates social media applications for The Bakersfield Californian, an internationally-recognized, independently-owned newspaper in California. Our award-winning “Bakomatic” platform powers the Web sites of several newspapers, including The Bakersfield Californian and The Arizona Republic, as well as several niche community sites (see case studies here: http://participata.com/casestudies.html)
As our responsibilities grow, we’re looking for someone who can lead the technology vision for this platform and everything that it enables in the future. We need a flexible, fun-loving PHP developer who has a passion for and understanding of “Web 2.0” applications. The position will involve overseeing core development – currently managed through an outside development firm – and recruiting and managing one or more junior developers. For this reason, some experience managing or overseeing the work of other developers is very important.
- Proficiency in XML, CSS, and comfort with standard web development tools (SSH, FTP, CVS, etc.)
- Proficiency with PHP and MySQL
- Able to learn from documentation, and Googling for answers
- Excellent communication skills, and ability to work in a “virtual” setting using primarily e-mail and telephone
- Ability to travel regularly
- Ability to be on call for after-hours and weekend support in emergency situations
Please send a resume and links to interactive database-driven Web sites you have worked on to email@example.com, and include “PHP Developer” in your subject line.
You must be in the greater Denver, Colorado area or able to relocate, and be able to comfortably work out your home using provided equipment (laptop, internet, phone, etc). Regular in-person office meetings in the Boulder/Denver area, and travel to Bakersfield every two months, will be required.
This is a full-time position with health benefits, vacation and 401(k).
