The Positive Outlook 2014

Mark CarneyWho knows for certain?
But the signs are more positive.

Even compared with just six months ago, all of the indicators suggest that the outlook for doing business in the UK is increasingly positive.

The British Chambers of Commerce, the Bank of England, the Office of National Statistics and other organisations tell the same story. 2014 looks more positive.

I started printing.com in the last recession. Once it ended, we grew 600% in the following two years – it’s a question of timing as they say.

Colour Inspiration: December

Colour Inspiration December

Our December Palette contains the classic Christmassy red and green along with cold wintery shades. In western culture red and green is used at Christmas time to signify Christ’s blood, shed during his crucifixion and the green to represent eternal life, specifically the evergreen tree and how it remains green throughout winter. Red creates excitement so is a good colour to wrap your presents in! It increases our heart rate and encourages a passionate response from people. Light blues are often relaxed and calming.

We’ve included the colour make up on each swatch of our December palette, speak to your local printing.com about incorporating these colours in your next marketing campaign.

We're hiring PHP Developers (x3), Manchester

THE OPPORTUNITY

We operate 20 eBusiness websites across the world. They’re all driven from Flyerlink, our IT heart. Everyone who touches our business interfaces with Flyerlink in some way, whether a client placing an order, a franchisee preparing a proof or our production team manufacturing finished print. We are expanding our development team and are looking for 3 well-rounded developers who’d like a challenging role. Our systems are mainly developed in PHP, but there are many non-PHP aspects to the job, so the more general your knowledge and experience, the better.

 

THE SKILLS

  • You will have a strong interest of web development using PHP, developing bespoke large scale applications. Any commercial experience is a big bonus.
  • We mainly use PostgreSQL, but experience of other DBMS may be sufficient.
  • We use a couple of different JavaScript libraries, but you should be proficient in JavaScript generally.
  • We use source control (Both Subversion and Git), and experience with other languages and frameworks is definitely preferable.
  • We telecommute, and we keep in touch using email and IRC. Whilst you will be based in Manchester, our other developers are scattered round the UK, Europe and the USA, so you must be able communicate well using your keyboard.
  • We all develop on Mac OS X. You can develop using any OS you prefer, but due to the nature of the development, you must use a Unix-based OS.
  • Although you won’t be expected to be an award-winning designer, you must be able to create and modify HTML and CSS.

Experience of system administration of Linux (Debian, specifically) would be highly desirable but not essential. We’d especially love it if you have experience with load balancing, replication and high-availability.

 

THE OTHER STUFF

You’re a self starter. You like people. You’re confident and you like getting things done. You’ve got a high attention to detail and are proud of the way you present yourself. You’re interested in aesthetics and you get annoyed when a user interface is ugly or irritating. You’ll have a degree in an IT-related discipline and you’ll have done well at university. You’ll be good at maths and your written English is flawless.

 

THE REWARDS

We’ll pay a competitive salary, health benefits and make pension contributions. You’ll be eligible for our performance-related bonus scheme. You’ll have the opportunity to interact with lots of different people from lots of different countries (you’ll learn what winklewagen means in Dutch). And we’re located in the calm oasis of Trafford Park.
