|Job Title||Web Developer - PHP / SQL (LAMP)|
|Skills Required||Network / Online / Server, Web / Browser, Flash / Actionscript / HTML5, Database / SQL|
|Job Description||Gamer Network needs a talented engineer to join our close-knit team of web developers and designers.
We have built a network of 25 sites in the video games sector, reaching over 12 million users a month. Our flagship site, Eurogamer, has been active for 14 years, is published in 11 languages and is followed by a huge international community.
The role will involve developing these sites to help increase our audience and to help exploit new opportunities where they exist. We have a strong tradition of building our platform on a fully open source stack. You will be encouraged to suggest elegant solutions to problems, and to work creatively with our editorial teams to present new forms of video game journalism. You will work on scalable front end, mission critical back end and novel, realtime social interfaces. Plus there's some API maintenance for clients (I know, we all hate that).
In addition, we own, run and build tech for the UK's biggest ever games shows: Eurogamer Expo (at Earls Court) and Rezzed (this year at the NEC). When these events are on, we down tools and get involved, which is an amazing experience.Skills & Requirements
Nice to have
Icing on the cake
As you can imagine for a company that spends all of its time thinking about games, the atmosphere is relaxed. Everybody plays games at their desks and one of our meeting rooms is now essentially the FIFA tournament room. We have non-compulsory beer and Wheat Crunchies at 4pm on Friday. We are across the road from several great pubs.
