Fancy working at MNHQ? We've got an opening in the fabulous tech team.

The job is at our office in Kentish Town, London NW5. We're pretty flexible wherever possible, but it is office and office-hours based.

We're looking for someone with in-depth knowledge and demonstrable experience in:


Some knowledge of:

Photoshop (or similar)
Building front ends of database driven websites
General Mac and PC admin

And ideally would also have some knowledge of:

SQL databases
Bash or Perl or Ruby or PHP (or better yet, all 4, since we use them all)
Server-side Java

We have lovely offices, nice shiny Mac computers and pay a competitive salary. However, best of all is that you'll be exposed to quite a wide range of technology. Rather than only working on the front end you'll get to learn about the technology behind a busy database driven website. And you can potentially get your hands dirty with things like server-side Java, Flash programming, mobile web stuff, social networking integration and so on.

Send a CV (in plain text or PDF - No Word documents please) to and include a note telling us why you'd be perfect for the job.

well OK I would only like it but would love to work for MNHQ
Any chance you'd pay my expenses for a helicopter commute from the north east each day?

Sounds like my kind of job...only I live in Belfast with no desire to move.

I'd put my brother up for it, but he's a strictly pc man. sad

I would love to work at MNHQ but have none of the desired experience and would have to commute for about 4 hours a day. grin
