After just four months work, building up a new company, we find that we are already at the point of discussing whether or not to take on a new member of staff. This is actually a big decision to make, and quite a step forward for the company – how best to go about it, who to look for, how to pay the person appointed, how to ensure some kind of security…
We will be thinking about this a lot more before we post an advert anywhere, but essentially we will very soon need a competent PHP coder who has a passion for getting things right, wants to add their own ideas and be part of a dynamic and young company. The right person will work closely with our director of technology, Alex Blanc, to fulfil some of the many projects we are generating with a growing number of clients. Ideally, the right person will have a lot of ideas to throw into the mix, be passionate about what they do, be prepared to work hugely long hours and hit deadlines when they are needed. An eye for design, an eye for accuracy and a desire to improve what you just created will be ideal!
In return they will become part of a fast growing and dynamic group involved in some highly innovative projects. As for salary – it depends on your experience, and what other skills you bring to the post besides those we set out… we want the right person when the time comes, and want them to feel as much a part of the company as anyone else. We don’t do elitism, massive hierarchy or power trips. We don’t want someone who doesn’t want to be fully involved.
So where do we find a person like that, a team player willing to commit to a new company based in the Chelmsford area of Essex? Do you know someone we should talk to?? Let me know! In the next month to six weeks we will have made our appointment, I hope.
