development ethos, and brings together people from diverse backgrounds

utilise 2 week iteration cycles, with release candidate testing, which
allows for hotfixes. We’re working towards nightly builds and fully
automated unit and selenium testing.

8 different languages, attracting over 100 million page views a month
and growing.. The role itself is based entirely in our central London
office, working hours are 8am to 4:30pm (with some flexibility).

Our Interview process involves an in house written perl test and some
homework, to give you an opportunity to shine and all of us the chance
to find out how well we can work together. We will consider a broad
range of experience levels for the role, if you can prove your skills
in our test.
