Call for a Webmaster

Written by

 twoUse your tech skills to change the way we see Europe!

If you want to work with an international team to help transform our popular website into an exciting multimedia platform hosting transnational journalism of every variety, this could be the job for you.

About the magazine

E&M (www.europeandme.eu) is Europe's first online lifestyle magazine created by young Europeans for young Europeans. We want to establish a new paradigm for European journalism: instead of producing stories aimed at national audiences within a specific country, we write from a transnational perspective. Great content requires a great website both in terms of looks and functionality. We are in the process of restructuring our site to accommodate our ambitions, and have grown to the point where we now require expert technical support.

This is a flexible role in which the Webmaster would have a considerable amount of freedom to pursue their own interests, projects and ideas. But the core requirements you would be expected to fulfil include:

- Developing and implementing improvements to our design and information architecture.

- Building templates for innovative types of content, such as quizzes, video specials, slideshows and infographics.

- Overseeing the publication of a new edition of E&M once every three months.

- Providing occasional technical support to the editorial board.

- Our website uses Joomla, so experience with this content management system is a major advantage.

- The workload will vary depending on the stage of the production cycle, but essential duties will rarely exceed more than two hours' work per week.

In return you'll get useful experience in a whole range of areas relating to content management and web design. But perhaps more importantly this is a unique opportunity to work with a group of young people from all over Europe on a project we are genuinely passionate about.

E&M is fully voluntary and not for profit, and all positions are unpaid.

Interested? Think you could help? Have an idea to push our magazine forward? Get in touch! Send your CV and a brief letter explaining your motivation to application [at] europeandme.eu by 26 September.

Editorial

If the Editorial team had an actual office it would have to stretch from the corner of Britain to the edges of Spain, Sweden, Germany and beyond. (With frequent trips to America too) .  The term 'from the editorial office' then, is very much a figure of speech.
