Greetings again! - we are looking for yet another programmer! Most
of the below still apply with a few additional points listed
Ok - if you made it this far, good on ya! We are looking for an
exceptional programmer to join our team in New Zealand. Good talent
is hard to find - so why limit your pool of prospects to the local
market only - heck, we'll even consider Aussies!
Why move to New Zealand? Well, its a bloody good place to live.
Its a cruisy lifestyle, we don't start wars, no daily red/orange/amber
alerts and its just plain beautiful. Granted if you like the rat
race then New Zealand is probably not for you (and honestly we probably
don't want you here anyway). But if you are interested, keep reading...
The company I am involved is a dynamic, profitable young internet
startup. We have a small young staff from all parts of the world.
It is fun, open and occasionally very un-pc place to work (in other
words, we get things done!) Its the type of business you can't wait
to get started when the day begins. We are going through a growth
phase right now, so we are looking for someone to get in early and
grow with our business.
This is what we are looking for:
- Good English Skills. Because if you talked
to us in any other language we probably wouldn't understand you.
- Good Microsoft Skills: Just kidding (we don't
- PHP programming. At least 4 years programming
experience. Thats not to say I am not keen on other languages,
its just we have some legacy PHP you'll need to suss out from

perl, lua, lisp etc) include that in your CV/Resume
- Database Skills: You know MySQL and SQL (ok
so does everyone else). But you know it really well!
- Ability work with Legacy code: Some of our
php code kicks arse, some of it blows. That being said, you'll
get a full breakdown on how all of it works. Part of your job
will be to continually improve our existing systems -mainly so
everything is automated so we all can take holidays to Fiji etc.
- Good OO and Organisional skills: The projects
that we work on are quite complex. We need someone who can write
elegant code that can get reused. Knowing how to write database
schemas is a definate plus.
- Good Linux/Unix Server skills: You'll need
to know how to manage Linux Servers
- Good Attitude: You knowledge and abilities
will be stretched. This is not a 9 to 5 job, this is our lifestyle
for us. We don't want negative people here. We have big plans
and ambitions and you can be a part of all this! We don't care
if you run with your scissors, just as long as you play well with

Still reading? We have one project we are looking build in the
near future. We will probably have you work on this remotely (if
you live outside of Auckland) to cut your teeth on a project first.
Still interested? Ok then. Contact me at the email below. Send
your CV/Resume with an email why you like to work for us. This is
serious offer - we are looking forward to hearing from you soon!
