  1. We are hiring: Front End Developer

    Edit

    Are you stuck in a boring job? Are you yearning for a chance to spread your wings? Good news: the wait is over!

    Do you want to create elegant and useful interfaces for world-leading brands and cutting-edge web applications such as Fluxiom.com and MaikoApp.com? Do you feel comfortable carrying an idea from first draft to finished product while working with a closely-knit team of experts? Do you love to turn complex interaction models into beautiful and readable code? Do you want to create products that enable people to be successful doing what they love?

    Still nodding? Then you should apply, provided you can bring along the following:

    • 5+ years of experience in front-end development
    • Fluency in JavaScript, HTML, CSS (SASS), and jQuery
    • Working knowledge of Backbone.js, Bootstrap, and CoffeeScript
    • A sound understanding of Rails
    • Familiarity with GitHub and Heroku
    • EU citizenship or a work permit for Austria

    Whom you’ll work with

    Left to right: Thomas, Nadja, Dave, Christina, Tom, William — and the Riesenrad.

    Thomas is our product guy. He leads all things UI and UX and sets the direction of the ship, with plenty of output from his trusted team of innovators. He also happens to be the founder and CEO of Wollzelle.

    Nadja keeps the wheels turning: whether she’s compiling research, performing miracles in Photoshop or torturing our beta products at the testing stations, her results will surprise you!

    Dave is our resident genius for all things IT. His heart is about as big as his brain, and they have both earned him a central place on the team. He specialises in un-sticking whatever locks up as we develop new products.

    Christina keeps the pace and manages our clients. As COO, she’s in charge of design and project management, personally leads our key accounts, and makes sure we stay on message at all times. She knows the Gucci brand inside-and-out, to the point we sometimes feel she has psychic powers.

    Tom is the back-end magician in charge of continuous integration. He holds all the keys to the engine room and keeps everything on board running smoothly, whatever the weather.

    William performs front-end magic. His are the shoes you are poised to fill, but fret not: he’ll show you the ropes, and, of course, the whole team will rally round to ease your foray into the job!

  2. Infographic on the new EU VAT rules

    Edit

    New VAT regulations came into effect on 1 January 2015. If you sell digital goods or services (Saas) within the European Union, it is essential that you review your invoices for compliance. As so often, the rules are confusing, and failure to conform could have dire consequences.

    There is so much contradictory information out there, especially for intra-European relationships, that I decided to put together a little flowchart, to facilitate our invoicing. Our friends saw it, liked it, and asked for it, so there it is, for your personal enjoyment. We hope it helps you get back to actual productive work as soon as possible!

    These new VAT regulations are a vast and complex issue. While nothing could replace the personal advice of your accountant, we have compiled a list of links, ranging from official texts to pithy commentary. May they prove as useful to you in your research as they were to us! We wish you the best of luck in this endeavour!
