New Job – and two jobs up for grabs

Woot! I’ve secured myself a Lead PHP developer role in London which I’m absolutely ecstatic about! It does mean my short-lived contracting career is already at an end (well, at least for the foreseeable future!). More details later!

However, I am aware of two other positions currently available. If you are interested in either of these roles, please email me via and I’ll reply with more details (this email address will be deactivated at the end of November at the latest!).

* Flash Developer (ideally with Games experience)
Permanent position (no remote-working). Based in London (W1W postcode, nearest Underground station: Great Portland Street)
Salary: Still to be decided
Start date: Between 27th of October and 17th November 2008

A new,well-funded, startup in the educational arena is looking for an on-site Flash designer/developer that ideally has some experience developing games in Flash utilising XML files for configuration data and XML feedback to the server. Graphic designs of characters/background etc will be done via a third party. Ideally needs to have examples of previous work.

* Technical Lead
Permanent position (no remote-working). Based in London (W1B postcode, nearest Underground station: Oxford Circus)
Salary: 60,000 and 80,000 GBP
Start date: ASAP

A highly organised person with experience of LAMP technologies (ideally with the Xaraya CMS, and AJAX/Flash) is needed to work in a magazine-website orientated client-facing role with a number of internal and external stakeholders to help lead development and solve problems and performance issues. You will need to be able to recruit an in-house and offshore development team and migrate from the currently outsourced team.

This post is over 6 months old.

This means that, despite my best intentions, it may no longer be accurate.

This blog holds over 12 years of archived content - during that time, I may have changed my opinion of something, technology will have advanced (and old "best standards" may no longer be the case), my technology "know how" has improved etc etc - it would probably take me a considerable amount of time to update all the archival entries: and defeat the point of keeping them anyway.

Please take these posts for what they are: a brief look into my past, my history, my journey and "caveat emptor".
