We require a self-motivated, talented programmer to support our chief developer continually improving our highly innovative application environment and its first production application. You will be comfortable in object-oriented Javascript (Typescript, though solid Javascript is acceptable), web frameworks and responsive web apps. We use the React framework, experience useful but we're happy for you to learn on the job. You don't need to be an SQL expert, but some knowledge would be useful. You must be prepared to comply and contribute to coding standards as we grow and you will work very closely alongside the Chief Developer and CTO.

Ultimately, you must be a programmer by nature rather than training! What you can do matters most and interviews will have a practical element. Ability is valued more highly than formal training. We are a young company looking for the right developer to lead a larger team as we grow.

Knowledge of Apache, Linux, MySQL, otherSQL, PHP all advantageous.
