We’re hiring – come help us build citizen history

I’ve been remiss in not posting our latest job advert on the blog – it’s a full-time developer position in Oxford for someone to lead our new collaboration with Imperial War Museum’s project to commemorate the first world war. This is an exciting chance to expand what we’ve been doing with projects like Old Weather and we hope that talented front-end developers will apply.

We’re looking for someone who can build beautifully in HTML5/CSS/Javascript, and who has an understanding of user interface design. If they’re good at working with large and diverse teams, that’d be a bonus too as they’ll be the main point of contact between Zooniverse and IWM. A background in developing highly-usable interfaces for web applications and experience of working with a modern web framework such as Ruby on Rails would be an advantage, as would a history in citizen science, history, science or any combination of the three.

Full details are here, but the upshot is that you’ve got until 5th March to apply.
