About PageFair PageFair is a fast growing Irish startup company. We were started in 2012 by some of the best known entrepreneurs in the Irish technology scene, and are growing into an international company, with staff from different countries working to solve the problems of major media companies across the US and Europe.

Our goal is to protect the future of the free web from the widespread adoption of adblocking. Adblock browser extensions and apps have been invented because online advertising has become very annoying, however they wipe out basic ads along with the annoying ones. Since online advertising is what makes it possible for publishers to provide their content for free, websites are now facing an uncertain future, and many are laying off their staff. We are here to make sure publishers can stay in business, by providing them with our unique technology to protect their non-annoying ads from getting blocked. If we are successful, then the most important cultural innovation since the printing press – the free world wide web – will be saved from ruin.

We are venture funded by some of the best investors in Ireland, are working with a long list of famous international websites, newspapers and TV companies, and we’re looking forward to lots of growth over the next few years. We are now excited to be expanding our team to help our customers deploy and get the most out of our software.

We’re looking for someone who loves to code! The right person for this role is someone who has a deep interest in development, and is keen to keep learning, both to improve their own skills and those of the team. They can communicate their ideas clearly and are committed to their craft, always striving to do things the right way.

We use the following technologies, so we’re looking for people who are proficient in:

  • Browser-based Javascript
     
  • NodeJS
     
  • Python or dynamic programming languages such as Ruby
     
  • GNU/Linux-based development
     
  • Relational databases such as MySQL or PostgreSQL
     
  • Configuration management tools such as Saltstack, Chef, Puppet or Ansible
     
  • Amazon Web Services (AWS) ecosystem
     

Knowledge of the following technologies would be a bonus:


  • NoSQL databases such as Redis, MongoDB or Riak
     
  • Messaging systems like RabbitMQ
     
  • Web frameworks such as Django or Ruby on rails
     
  • Tools for alerting like Nagios
     
  • Tools for monitoring like Graphite
     
  • Networking protocols
     
  • Basic cryptographic concepts
     
  • Functional languages such as Haskell, Erlang or Scala
     
  • Object-oriented languages such as Java or C#
     
  • Systems programming languages such as C, C++ or Rust
     

In return you can expect:


  • A competitive remuneration package
     
  • Employee Share option Scheme
     
  • Flexible working hours
     
  • CPD and continuous learning support
     
  • A great employee social event calendar
     
  • Catered Lunches
     
  • Paid Maternity/ Paternity Leave
     
  • Gym Membership
     
  • Health Insurance

About Us Company Culture We are making sure that PageFair is a fun and interesting place to work. The core culture of the company is technology-based, and as a result is efficient, open, rational, intellectually challenging and sometimes geeky. We experiment with ideas, and when we fail we try again a little bit wiser. We place an emphasis on a few common values that have already emerged and define who we want to be:


  • Be objective. Don’t work randomly. Find a way to measure what you are doing, and figure out if it is getting better or worse, so you can learn faster.
     
  • Do the right thing. The world of adblocking is a murky one, and the only way for PageFair to gain industry trust is to make sure that we are trustworthy and are “the good guys”.
     
  • Do it for the customer. Don’t commit your time and the company’s money to anything without knowing why it’s ultimately going to help online publishers.
     

Who You Will Work With You will primarily report to Brian McDonnell CTO & co-founder. Other key relationships will be with Sean Blanchfield (CEO, in charge of strategy) and Neil O’Connor (COO, in charge of customer success). You will work in the same room as everyone else, and will get to know everyone on a personal level. You will also liaise with people in our New York office.

The Working Day Most of the team work from 10am - 6pm . Your desk will be nearby Brian’s and in the same room as the the whole team.

Career Progression We can offer an opportunity to accelerate your professional experience faster than you could elsewhere. You will be given as many responsibilities as you are willing to take upon yourself, and which you have proven some ability at. Since our company is growing fast, opportunities to expand your experience will never stop, and we will be able to continuously make sure that everyone has a remuneration package that makes PageFair the best place in Dublin for them to work.

Wondering which programming language is right for you? Here's some inspiration

Posted in Tips on 04 January 2017

You don’t need us to tell you that when it comes to tech, staying ahead of the curve is a pretty good idea. In such an innovative and fast-paced industry, new technologies are emerging every week, every day… basically all the time!

Sometimes there’s no way to predict what’s right around the corner; all we can do is look at current trends and speculate where they might go. Coding is no different. With that in mind, here is the one programming language that will still be in high-demand in 2017, and is set to shine bright this year.

Java isn’t exactly new, but it is ubiquitous and that’s not going to change any time soon. It has uses in anything web-related and a lot more besides, and the amount of activities the general population is conducting over the web is forever increasing. Java has held the top spot on the TIOBE index for the last few years, and its percentage share increases year on year too.

So why is JavaScript so popular? For a start, it’s ‘the’ language of the web – no JavaScript, no web. Secondly, the mere fact that it’s so popular continues to boost its popularity! There are endless other reasons too; it’s supported by every browser, it can be run as a server side language, it’s not all that difficult to learn and has a huge open source community…. we could go on and on. Basically as long as the web is around, JavaScript will be around.

Can Google's Pixel give the iPhone a run for its money?

Posted in News on 07 October 2016

Google officially became a hardware company on Tuesday. Not only did the company announce new Pixel phones (RIP Nexus), but the company also provided pricing and release dates for Google Home, its Amazon Echo killer, unveiled its mobile VR headset called Daydream View, Google Wi-Fi network extenders and Chromecast Ultra. See? A lot of hardware.

 

Joining me this week's MashTalk is Deputy Tech Editor Damon Beres and — for the first time — our wonderful tech intern Alex Laird.

Obviously we talked the new Google gadgets and whether or not they pose a threat to the iPhone.

 

Damon scored us an exclusive look at Giphy Cam 2.5 (the company says it with a hard G, which is wrong, but whatever!). The ultimate time-wasting camera app got updated with new augmented reality "stickers" that you can overlay on top of your face and other objects. They're kind of like Snapchat lenses.

TL;DR: The app is awesome and so is augmented reality!

Apple CEO Tim Cook agrees and thinks AR is the future, not VR. But don't tell Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg that.

 

Zuckerberg believes VR is the "next computing platform" and with Oculus VR, he intends to make it so. 

He keynoted a good chunk of Oculus Connect 3, where Oculus finally announced how much the Rift's Touch controllers will cost and unveiled the $50 Oculus Earphones that apparently sound as good as $900 earphones. Oculus is also working on a standalone VR headset that will occupy the middle space between mobile VR headsets like the Gear VR and PC-based VR headsets like the Rift.

Is the future just better phones? AR? VR? The only way to find out is by listening to this week's MashTalk.
