Work for the UK’s number one music website

The UK's number one website is looking to expand its hardworking team...

With all the latest news, views and reviews on everyone from Suede to Mogwai to Basement Jaxx, nme.com is the UK’s most popular music website. Following a number of groundbreaking innovations such as nme.com e-mail, a free ISP and webcasts of bands of the calibre of Suede and Death In Vegas, we are looking to shift up a gear.

We’re looking to fill a number of posts to make nme.com the number one music site in the world.

Website Developer

As well as knowing the difference between Gay Dad and Puff Daddy, you’ll need to combine creativity, flair and the ability to work to tight, tight deadlines with excellent technical skills: Perl5 including OO techniques, UNIX, Shell Scripting, CGI programming, TCP/IP protocols, HTML coding using text editor. Netscape, RealMedia Server configuration, Javascript and such like would be great as well.

Working as the self-motivated Technical Guru on nme.com, and working hand in hand with the editorial team, you’ll need to combine our laid back, social, relaxed and fun loving approach with the flexibility to ditch all of that when the deadline’s on you and you just have to get the job done.
