» We're recruiting a Resident Technologist

STOP PRESS: The deadline for this is to be extended as we are effectively re-advertising the post. If you are interested, please get in touch. Previous applicants need not re-apply.

Talking Birds Theatre Company is seeking a creative technologist – a programmer, web developer, creative thinker, collaborator and all round super techno genius (we're not asking much).

We are a small company, with big ideas – like our Difference Engine access tool, which we believe is set to revolutionise the creative possibilities of access. We are looking for someone who shares our vision, ambition and enthusiasm – and who can bring new, technical, strengths to what we do. Funding from The Paul Hamlyn Foundation has made it possible to create this post to support the development of the company's digital work throughout 2016-7.

This is an opportunity to work on a wide variety of new creative technical projects, within a small but highly motivated creative team. It’s a chance to really make a mark – within the company but also in the fields of creativity and access – on what is a ground breaking initiative with national impact.

You will have experience in the design of new apps, web systems and features, with experience of Java, Python, PHP, Javascript, Java, iOS (Objective C or ideally Swift), HTML, CSS, Apache, Linux, and frameworks such as Pylons and JQuery. You will have strong technical skills, and an enthusiastic approach to learning.

The role is highly technical and the technologies employed are subject to continual innovation – so you’ll be someone who keeps up-to-date with developments within the sector, and actively seeks out new ways of doing things better.
