IT/Programmer/Networker/and general software wizard
West End is an international communications partner for leading global brands, with 38 years’ experience across many sectors, including healthcare, finance and other highly regulated markets. We're not huge – just 30 or so creative individuals based in Eastbourne – and we are seeking a thoroughly responsive candidate who will be both proactive and responsive to change.
We're looking for an all-rounder that can keep an eye on our network and manage the growth and traffic that our business handles.
That's the easy bit!
Since the network will require a modest amount of time, the rest of the successful candidate's role will become even more interesting and at times challenging. A good understanding of PHP (not least since much of our internal Management information system is built upon it), and familiarity with a wealth of tools; Raspberry Pi, Unity, Augmented reality, mySQL, GitHub, IR sensors, DMX, actuators, Arduino, a soldering iron, sticky-backed plastic and much much more. We realise that this portfolio of knowledge is a tall order but through commitment and shared implementation we deliver outstanding solutions for our global clients.
You'll be working with a team – like no other! It's no wishy-washy arena – more gladiatorial amphitheatre – with a total focus on developing powerful and robust solutions – packaged in a creative and inspired way. It's not your usual creative environment (albeit we do have a few bean bags and the odd inspirational quote on the walls). It's more of a solutions factory with amazing people.
Salary will be commensurate to skill levels – but the most influential factor will be attitude and determination to see successful outcomes. A valid passport is essential as you will be expected to be travelling with other team members to a varied range of locations.
Don't apply if you think it's going to be an easy cushy little number – it's not.
But it will be a very rewarding role for the right person. If you want to see what we do take a look at our website. It's not the best – the cobbler's shoes don't get mended – but it gives you a flavour of what we are about.
