Fancy joining our happy team in our Brighton seafront offices? Charanga has openings for 2 interns – a Digital Marketeer and a Front-end Web Developer. Initially for 6 weeks, we would like both internships to develop into full-time positions for the right candidates. See Wired Sussex for more information about applying.

Front-end Web Developer

Join our dev team of four (1 front-end, 1 application developer, 2 back-end), helping with the on-going development of our Musical School music-teaching product for schools, our VIP Studio Sessions website which helps young people create, produce and release music, and our Musikpartner programme for Danish and Norwegian schools.

We’re in the process of porting our audio resources from Flash to HTML5/web-audio, and we’re also looking at updating our PC and Mac offline desktop app, using a framework like Cordova. This will enable us to additionally support tablets as well as desktop platforms. So if this sounds like something you’d be interested in, then we’d definitely like to hear from you.
