We’ve seen strong demand for our services since launching our Linked Data Publishing platform, PublishMyData, and now we need some extra help. So we’re looking for someone to join our small team here in Manchester (UK), either on a permanent or long-term contract basis

What we’re looking for

We’re looking for a motivated and sharp web developer to work predominantly in our central Manchester office on our Linked Data related products and projects.

Ideally you’d be experienced in Ruby on Rails, JavaScript, TDD and NoSQL databases, although we will consider proven polyglot programmers with other core skill-sets.

Some knowledge of RDF, Linked Data and triple stores would be a bonus but we appreciate it’s a fairly niche skill at the moment.

One of our core aims is to enable all kinds of users (from laypeople interacting with visualisations through to software developers using our APIs) to understand, use, and get value from open data. So although we don’t expect you to be a fully fledged designer, a strong aesthetic sense and a good feel for user experience would come in very handy.

Finally, but importantly, we’d like to find someone who shares our passion for open data and open source, and wants to make a difference in that area.

We think Swirrl would be a great place to work

You’d be making a big impact on our small company, helping to shape our products and future.

This will be a very challenging and rewarding role, working on interesting projects for high-profile clients, as well as developing our own suite of Linked Data products. We’re looking for the best, and will offer a competitive salary/day-rate, a healthy holiday entitlement, and profit share for the right candidate. You would also get to spec your own development machine.

Although we’re looking for someone to work mostly with us in our informal but dynamic central-Manchester office (which we share with a few other startups), we’d be happy to accommodate some remote working.

Get in touch

If you’re interested, send us an email or call us on 0845 0035 389, and we can arrange to have an in-person chat over lunch or a drink. All enquiries/negotiations will be treated in the strictest confidence.

Strictly no recruiters or agencies, please.
