Spring Intern | January 5, 2009

Clearleft is looking for a keen intern to join our team for 10 weeks this spring. We’re looking for somebody with a real interest in front end development. Somebody who is passionate about the quality of their code and willing to go that extra mile to see it implemented correctly. You’ll be the type of person who reads all the blogs, subscribes to all the Twitter feeds and owns at least a couple of our books :-)

This is a hands on position so you’ll need to be willing to roll up your sleeves and get stuck in. We’ll be buddying you up with our superstar programmers, so you’ll get chance to pair program with Natalie Downe and argue semantics with Jeremy Keith. It won’t be a cakewalk either, so expect to have everything you know about web standards challenged.

After 10 weeks of working on real world projects with some of the best front end developers in the industry, you’ll have developed a level of HTML, CSS and Javascript knowledge that would normally take years to accrue. So this is an excellent opportunity for all those web standards enthusiasts and budding front end developers out there.

If you’re interested in the internship yourself, or know somebody who would be, here’s the official job spec.

As for myself, if the job didn’t require moving to the UK I’d be “SUPER” interested vs just “VERY” interested. :D

I’m a Web Master/Design Jedi (and yes it does says that on my business card) for a small design company here in Colorado USA.

I’m surprised I’m even first to comment. I am Sure that won’t last long.

The wwWorld would be a much funner place if we all remembered, “Clean design + clean code = clean user experience” And we all know what they say about cleanliness. :D

Hope the search goes well!

This does indeed sound super awesome, and I am very interested.

In the meantime, the Jeremy Keith link above also points to Natalie’s site, so you might want to fix that before he discovers that he’s being cheated out of a linky-pooh :)

What an incredible opportunity, one I would leap at if I wasn’t already employed.

What an incredible opportunity, one I would leap at if I wasn’t already employed. Although this is enough to make me take a risk..

What constiutes “all the Twitter feeds”? Isn’t that highly subjective?
