Allure Media is one of Australia's fastest growing digital publishers. In the past two years, our three technology mastheads have grown from fringe websites to account for one-in-two minutes spent reading technology content online. Our recently launched women's lifestyle network is changing the way young women read content online.

We're now on the hunt for two technology all-rounders who are great PHP developers. Both are full-time roles based in our Sydney office.

The successful applicants will:

  • Maintain and develop our eight websites, taking them to best-in-class products; and
  • Manage site hosting, keeping our titles online and responsive.

They'll have:

  • Extensive knowledge of standards-compliant XHTML and CSS;
  • A strong understanding of PHP with proven experience;
  • An understanding of Web 2.0 design trends, styles and technologies;
  • Experience with layouts and front-end design using Adobe Photoshop;
  • Experience with cross-browser compatibility including Internet Explorer rendering issues and solutions; and
  • An understanding of Linux.

Other desirable skills include:

  • Knowledge of JavaScript, AJAX and JavaScript frameworks;
  • Experience with Wordpress or other PHP-based frameworks and/or CMSes; and
  • Experience hosting high-trafficked websites.

These are hands-on roles and all levels of experience will be considered. One candidate will also manage our tech team of three.
