Wanted – new team member



OLO is published by The National Forum, which in turn contracts Internet Thinking to do that job and employ all the staff etc. Internet Thinking has also financed the growth of The National Forum. We’re a small team, and we are losing one of our members David (more commonly called Dewi). We need someone who is committed and who is interested in the development of using the web to connect Australians to each other, so this seemed a natural place to put an advert. Here goes…

Internet Thinking is the publisher of pioneering Australian eJournal On Line Opinion, Australia’s most popular politics site. We are leaders in open source and Web 2.0 applications and participate in Australian Government-funded research into using the web to engage citizens. Our clients include members of parliament, community organisations, corporates and individuals.
We are looking for an IT professional to maintain existing systems and help to expand our business. Applicants should have project management and customer service skills, and experience in the use of PHP, ASP, Linux and MySQL. They should also be familiar with Joomla! and WordPress.
Ideally we are looking for someone with 5 years of more programming experience with a Bachelors Degree, and experience in building Web 2.0 type sites.
Applicants should contact Graham Young graham.young@onlineopinion.com.au

So, if you are looking for a challenge, and a rewarding job, don’t be shy. You will need to be based in Brisbane.

    Hello Graham Young.
    Understand you want a new team member.
    So what does it pay?
    Silly question in this day and age, eh!
    Leave that aside for the moment;
    I read yours -
    “using the web to connect Australians to each other” -
    with which I profoundly agree.
    Then follows – “Applicants should have project management and customer service skills” -
    absolutely not a problem whatsoever. Been there and done that for about 20 years.
    The next part is a problem – “use of PHP, ASP, Linux and MySQL. They should also be familiar with Joomla! and WordPress.”
    I do have a son with an IT degree.
    He suggests you should rationalise your system.
    On my part, I solve problems by hitting the computer with a big spanner and have him fix it for me after lunch.
    So far that system has worked well.
    To continue -
    “Ideally we are looking for someone with 5 years of more programming experience with a Bachelors Degree, and experience in building Web 2.0 type sites.”
    And -
    ” So, if you are looking for a challenge, and a rewarding job, don’t be shy.”
    Well there you are. I’ve applied.
    “You will need to be based in Brisbane.”
    Send me the relocation cheque – or accept that I’ll do the job from where I sit.
    The electronic age does somewhat destroy the tyranny of distance.
    All of which inclines me to understand that you Guys are reasonably desperate for someone to take on a fairly unrewarding task.
    Right or wrong??
