Be a Made Guy (or Gal)

Made Guys

UPDATE: We have now filled all three roles.

We’re order generic viagra looking for new recruits to the family, for three positions in our Birmingham hideout:

1. Freelance Drupal Expert
We have a new project kicking off this summer using the Drupal Open Source Content Management System. It’s a lovely project for a lovely client, involving lots of clever Drupal integration, not least eCommerce with UberCart. We have loads of LAMP experience at Made, and we’re pretty comfortable with Drupal, but we’re looking for an experienced freelancer to spend one or two months with us to help bulk out the team, pass on some knowledge and help us avoid any Drupal dead-ends. Good rates for the right guy or gal, and it’s a nice open-ended assignment where you get to share your wisdom with a team that cares.

2. Full-time Web Designer (Junior to Middleweight)
We’re looking for a designer who gets the web. Your key tool is probably Photoshop, but you’ll have a working knowledge of HTML and User Experience. Skills in HTML&CSS, Flash Animation or wire-framing are a bonus but not strictly necessary. But you must have a gorgeous portfolio of website designs, even if those are personal projects—this is not a print design role. Work ranges from Arts & Culture, through TV to top-tier brands. We’ll consider designers from graduate to middleweight level, with salary dependent upon experience and skill-set (£17K-£25K).

3. Full-time Web Developer (Junior to Middleweight)
We’re looking for a web developer. We’re primarily concerned with front-end skills here; the ability to take a Photoshop layout, and turn it into standards compliant, accessible HTML & CSS is a must. Experience with Javascript frameworks, particularly jQuery desirable. Beyond that we’re looking for experience with LAMP based Content Management Systems. Basic template integration skills are expected. Proper object-orientated programmers, or people who demonstrate the potential to progress to that, will command a higher salary. Will consider graduates or juniors looking to move to next level. Salary dependent upon experience and skill-set (£18K-25K).

We recognise that there is a degree of overlap between roles 2 and 3 (and 1 & 3!) , and we’re happy to interview people who feel they fit somewhere in-between. But we’re definitely recruiting two people, and each recruit will work within a separate production team.

Please send CVs and URLs or Portfolios to We’re expecting to interview in the week commencing April 19. Please, honestly—no agencies and no phone calls—we’re recruiting because we’re busy!
