    Sounds Great.
    The only thing that is stopping me from applying is that my Weapon of choice is Ruby on Rails.

    Good luck to whom ever gets accepted to this role.

    Hi Kyle,

    Thanks for getting in touch – don’t suppose you can be lured to the dark side? ;)


  3. Kyle Welsby

    The Dark side LOL.
    I would Love to join 2am Media, I have sufficiant PHP skills but to be fair and honest it’s not my favoriate platform.
    Not to kid, if my weapon of choice for a CMS would be WordPress and I would dig in as deep to ensure a project is fully done.
    When it comes to bespoke builds, It’s just quicker, nicer and easier to use Ruby on Rails.

    Just cause I’m amazing.

    I sure hope you have a Intergalactic Space shuttle at your disposal Simon.

    Hi Kyle,

    How do you think I got into work this morning? In the evenings I relieve my bro on the space station whilst he gets some rest on our Dad’s island in the pacific.

    If you’re a superstar then I suggest you pass your CV through to us – if you’re not then I wouldn’t bother….

    I saw your request for a graduate, I am still currently studying, however with the way things are going I have more time developing systems outside of my studies as the first year is rather laborious with the amount of already known material.

    I have already got two fully working systems under my belt one was a framework for architectural engineering (as the sole programmer on the project) and the other was a psychology based system (worked with one other programmer)

    My languages are PHP5, Java, C++ and the use of Processing (Java) and Processing.js (Web Enabled).

    Hi Michael, can you send your CV through to please?

    I’m currently nearing the end of my degree course in Interactive Media Development and i’m looking for a full time/part time web design job.

    Considering your advert says ‘all applicants must apply before september 20th’ i guess im too late, but i was just wondering if there was any jobs available for a junior web-designer?

    I have basic knowledge of Flash. I consider myself to be very good using CSS and html5. i have also previously used PHP and Mysql.

    Matthew. :D
