Are you the go-to source for cool tech news in your friend group? If you’ve got your finger on the pulse of what’s happening in software and hardware, science, cloud services. electronics, robots, and tech culture, then we’ve found your happy place.

What began as a humble email newsletter is now one of the world’s leading online tech publications. Boasting more than 40 million readers in North America, Europe, and Asia, these journalistic dynamos have correspondents in America, Australia, Britain, and beyond. Thanks to their global presence, they know that the best talent is not always found in their backyard. This role is 100% remote, though if you’re missing in-person connection, you can work from their London office.

Your new teammates are independent workers. Fueled by passion, these self-starters don’t require a lot of supervision, and they’re looking for the same from you. In addition to the ability to stay on task, you’ll have experience writing high quality Perl, HTML, JavaScript, and CSS. SQL and DBlx::Class is your bread and butter, and UNIX tools are your sweet spot. As team members are dispersed across different physical locations, excellent communication skills are key.

Day to day, you’ll manage the life cycle of software projects. That may mean consultation, design, development, testing, and deployment, and will include a mix of new projects, refactoring of legacy code, and stomping bugs. If you enjoy writing your own tools using Perl, Bash, HTML, CSS, and JS, this is the role for you.
