With the release of Skyrim Nexus and the success of the modding scene to date the Nexus server infrastructure has been stretched to its very limits, and so have I. Working 18 hour days for the first couple of weeks (along with Axel) I began to question the work load I put in to running the Nexus and the obvious options were to tone down the scope of the sites or to bring on some more professional help to alleviate some of the stress placed on myself and the servers.
I have enjoyed immensely working in and being a part of this community, I have so many fond memories of times past and friends who have come and gone, and I do not want to let go of 10 years of hard work I've spent running these sites and trying to develop sites that are a true service to this community, with the community's best interests at heart. I'd like to continue to do that, providing scope and direction for the Nexus sites (and to continue to do all the crap in the background I bet none of you think need doing, like the dreaded VAT returns of doom!) and leaving the clever stuff (like the coding) to the clever people.
The last time I asked for help back at the start of April I was lucky enough to find Axel, who has been coding like a true Dovahkiin (as all true Dovahkiin's do...) ever since. He's very close to rolling out the PHP framework he's been working on since he first started and then we can really start moving. You might not notice any differences to begin with, but over the next couple of months you'll begin to notice some pretty major improvements. On that note, I'm looking for another PHP coder. Axel and I have grand aspirations and want to bring modding to the masses, but we need your help to do it.
We have a full-time, paid position open
for a PHP developer who is an avid fan of the games the Nexus sites support and who wants to get paid to work on bettering this great community we've created. You'll work closely with myself and Axel to improve the Nexus sites and expand their scope and reach while remaining true to our free sharing and open community. This position is open to people in the UK and the EU. Head on over to the job opening page
