Frontend / React developer, Aeon Melbourne

Frontend / React developer, Aeon Melbourne

TL;DR: we are a growing editorial platform with some big ambitions and a sizeable user-base and are looking for a local frontend developer to help us reach the next level.

Who we are

Since September 2012, Aeon has been publishing some of the most profound and provocative thinking on the web. It asks the biggest questions and finds the freshest, most original answers, provided by world-leading authorities on science, philosophy and society. It was founded in London three years ago, and having recently relocated the head office to Melbourne, is now looking to further build our tech team here. We are located in the Melbourne CBD, opposite Fed Square.

What we need

We are now embarking on a new phase of growth, building a publishing platform and online community around our distinctive brand of content.

MFC merchandise feedback

Hi all!

I've been giving you a fair bit of stick on Twitter recently about MFC merchandise (my handle is, ahem, @jmac). I mostly try and keep it light-hearted/civil, but every now and then I get a bit... ranty. And sweary. At the suggestion of the inimitable @demonblog, I decided to gather my thoughts and words from the gutter and try and give some more constructive criticism. If you're still reading at this point, thanks for indulging me.

You see—and I'm sure everyone who writes to you to complain says this—I love the Melbourne Football Club. I haven't been a member for as long as some, but I've followed the club since I was born. My Dad barracks for the Dees, and so do my two brothers and sister. My son Angus does now too, and with any luck so will his sister, Zara. Angus has been a member since he was born, and I'm hoping to sign 6 month-old Zara up this year too. My Dad is lucky enough to have seen the club win a Grand Final back in the day –
