We’ve just posted our first job advert for a remote worker. Take a look, especially if you’re a programmer.
Throughout ScraperWiki’s history, we’ve had some staff working remotely – one for a while as far away as New York!
Sometimes staff have had to move away for other reasons, and have continued to work for us remotely. Othertimes they are from the north of England, but just far enough away that it is only reasonable to come into the office for a couple of days a week.
Collaborative tools are better now – when we first started coding ScraperWiki in late 2009, GitHub wasn’t ubiquitous, and although we had IRC it was much harder to get bizdevs to use than Slack is. It’s hard to believe, but you had to pay for Skype group video calls, and Hangouts hadn’t launched yet.
So we’re quite used to remote working.
We love Liverpool, and we can tell you the advantages and help you move here if that’s what you want.
If it isn’t though, and if you’ve always wanted to work for ScraperWiki as a software engineer remotely, now’s your chance.
