Job opportunity: frontend developer

streetlife.com is a fully funded social networking startup based in Covent Garden, London. We’re gearing up for a massive relaunch in Autumn 2011, and we’re looking for another talented and enthusiastic web developer to help us make it even more awesome.

We’re a small, passionate team. Our meetings are informal, our fridge is always stocked with diet coke and beer, and we believe in changing the world. As the eighth member, you’ll have a unique opportunity to help shape as well as realise our vision of local social networking.

You’ll have demonstrable experience with

  • JavaScript and jQuery
  • HTML5 and CSS
  • Distributed version control systems like Git
  • Python web frameworks like Django and Flask.

Bonus points for design and Photoshop skills.

We want someone who

  • can take ownership of a new feature and implement it from start to finish
  • is focused on delivering an excellent user experience
  • is as comfortable writing Python as they are crafting clean, beautiful HTML
  • plays with new libraries, languages, frameworks and tools
  • can communicate well in their feature specs and commit messages and in person
  • maintains a github profile, a blog or portfolio
  • doesn’t mind being rick roll’d from time to time.

We’re offering a highly competitive salary, with performance-based bonuses. You’ll receive 28 days of annual leave, as well as the chance to join profit sharing and equity schemes.

Breakfast, lunch and snacks (from the best eateries in Covent Garden) are free, and if you want your workstation on a standing desk with three monitors, running the latest nightly build of Ubuntu, then we’ll make it so.

We build our site with the best tools and technologies for the job, such as: MongoDB, Flask, LESS CSS, Git, gunicorn and jQuery. We actively contribute code to them too, so if you’ve ever wanted to be paid to give back to the open source community, this is your chance!

Get in touch with us. Be a part of something big.
