Know a JavaScript developer?

If you haven’t heard yet, we’re looking for a JavaScript developer at Zemanta. I think the ad says it all.

Are you the frontend developer we are looking for?

Zemanta is developing a platform for contextually enhancing content and your job would be to help us develop tools that make this easy and fun for writers and readers alike.

If you have an exceptional understanding of Javascript and the internals of browsers, thrive on challenges and love learning new skills, then we would love to talk to you. Knowing Python and Django framework is a plus, but not a prerequisite.

“I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears and sweat.”

(Winston Churchill on life at a startup)

Well, not quite. Working in a startup means working in an ever-changing environment. We expect you to be flexible, do what needs to be done when needed, but offer flexibility in return. We care about good work and meeting deadlines. We don’t care where or when you do it, as long as you keep true to mutual agreements which include occasional meetings and we promise not to overburden you with work. A self-reliant member of a team is how you see yourself.

Schools you might have attended are none of our concern. We care only about how good of a developer and person you are. We expect you to send us examples of your work or explain persuasively why we should hire you. Zemanta is an international company, so your application, as much of our communication, will have to be in English.

Please send your application saved as an HTML or TXT document to [email protected].

Closing date for applications: 31.7.2009

In a time when practically all pages include some sort of JavaScript I am surprised that we don’t have more JavaScript developers popping up – this now surely is a full time job even in Slovenia. So you are one challenge yourself and send your job application and if you know one, send him our way…

    O, we’re out there. Fully occupied with our projects and yes, it’s tough to find great non-busy developers. ;)

  2. Marko Mrdjenovic

    Non-busy developers are usually not really good anyway.

    One of the reasons that it’s hard to find good people in Slovenia is that they are not willing to change projects/employers.
