What is “living the dream”?
Getting up everyday with nothing to do but go surfing……. maybe, but probably not! We are looking for energetic people that are looking to find the perfect balance between their social life and good old-fashioned hard work. The reason being that you have to make the sacrifices to really get the pleasure from your passions.
Every so often a specific job role comes up within our rapidly growing company and we will put out an advert both on the website and through some of our partners, but more often than not our jobs are filled by people that we know and trust that have spent time working with us. That is the only way to really know whom we are dealing with.
Be Like Napolean Dynamite
How does this help you with your job application? Two things, one line e-mails saying you are a looking for a job and are really arty and creative won't get you a job. Secondly, if you are really serious about getting work in our London office, go the extra mile to prove it! Napoleon Dynamite was spot on when he was saying you’ve got to have “skills”.
Once you have sent us a mind-blowing CV we will have a look through it and see if there is anyway we can welcome you into the PleaseFund.Us family. If we can’t help you directly then we are pretty well placed to put your application to a few of our partners and even the competition. All that we ask is that you put in the yards before you get in touch to show that you really are serious about working in one of the most exciting industries! Good luck!

What We Are Looking For Right Now....
Our development team is growing rapidly and currently we are split all over the world. Our lead developer Steve is based in California and some of the team are based down in Exeter. We are looking to build up our London Office team. With this in mind we are looking for interns keen to show off their talents. The position is a great chance for a talented developer looking to work with a fantastic team on highly commended software, taking ideas from inception all the way to their final release.
It’s also a chance to work for a startup that has a relaxed, informal environment (even the CEO usually wears jeans and a t-shirt) that’s full of ambitious, friendly people. It’s also well funded, which means no scrabbling for VC rounds!
You'll get the chance to really make a difference to a product used by thousands of users every day.
You’ll know HTML and CSS back to front and inside out.
Good knowledge of jQuery, as well as when and where to use it.
A good appreciation of user centered design.
An understanding (and practice) of Web Standards, progressive enhancements and how to keep everything running smoothly.
Not be afraid of getting your hands dirty in some code. You may not be able to write it but working around it won't put you out of your depth.
Don't worry if you are not too familiar with the following, but it would help: experience in Expression Engine, LAMP stack management and Git deployment.
This position requires creative flair in spades. There is no set role, there are no set requirements, play with our logo, play with our colours, send us some samples and show us your are serious!
Examples of work that you will be involved on range from design of logos, to national marketing campaigns on the underground, through to competition designs. If you are serious about getting a full time role at PleaseFund.Us try showing us how our e-mailers should look by firing us an example that you have created!
We have a steady stream of interns working for PleaseFund.Us gaining invaluable experience of working at an incredibly vibrant startup. If you think that you may be interested, then get in touch. We can't guarentee a job at the end, but to date over 30% of our employees have managed to weasle their way into a full time role through spending a couple of months interning with us.
Don't worry, we won't take the mickey, your first month will involve us paying for your travel costs, if we think that you are an asset we'll give you the minimum wage, and if you really prove your worth you could find yourself with a full time role.
