Description

Newspaper Club helps people make and print their own newspapers. Since 2010 we’ve printed over 6 million papers, built a rich Javascript web app (ARTHR) for designing a paper in your browser, launched a print-on-demand marketplace (The Newsagent) and a personalised newspaper service (PaperLater), which launched recently, to much acclaim. Here's a great blog post from a recent customer of ours.

Our small tech team is now focused on overhauling our site and redeveloping ARTHR to make it even easier for anyone to make their own newspaper. We’re looking for an experienced Ruby and Javascript developer to join us and help build the next generation of Newspaper Club.

Requirements

We're looking for someone with 3+ years experience writing modern, tested, production-ready Ruby on Rails code, and a strong interest in object oriented Javascript (ARTHR is primarily built on Backbone.js).

You'll work closely with a small team to develop the next iteration of ARTHR and support development of our core site and services, with our experienced customer service team. You’ll be a pragmatist with a desire to iterate quickly on a product, while balancing that with the need to build well engineered software.

Our main office is in Glasgow with team members also based in Birmingham and London. We use tools like Slack, Skype, and Basecamp to communicate so clear communication skills are a must.

Ideally you'd work in one of our existing locations but you could work remotely, with some occasional (expenses paid) travel to one of our offices.

The following experience would be useful, but is not required for this position:

  • Backbone.js or similar Javascript frameworks.
  • Linux server administration experience, including configuration management tools such as Ansible and Chef.
  • PDF files, and the printing process in general.

Benefits

In return, we’ll offer a competitive salary (up to £45k for this position), flexible hours and a relaxed working environment. We believe in having fun, doing work we’re proud of, and going home on time.
