Moonfruit is hiring!
We are happy to announce that at Moonfruit HQ we are looking for a number of fresh new candidates to fill various positions that have opened up within the company. So, would you like to be a part of the Moonfruit team? We have put together some material to give you a better understanding of our company: read our new starters’ opinions of the business, find out about our team’s extra-curricular activities and get to know more about Moonfruit’s history.
Moonfruit - the business.
Let’s start at the beginning.
Moonfruit has been around since 1999, growing from a handful of staff who were passionate about bringing website building to the masses. 13 years on and the values of Moonfruit haven’t changed, we still remain focused on providing an innovative, high quality product for everyone. Furthermore, the people behind this passion are still with the business today, helping to shape the next decade of website building.
The strength of Moonfruit as a product and a brand is helping to steer us through the current economic gloom. Also, our recent Yell investment means that we can carry on developing as we always have done, and part of this progression includes the need to hire new staff to assist with enhancing our business. We have been exceptionally busy these past months with a great deal of new developments completed, and the end of the year is set to be just as eventful with new campaigns and the eminent HTML5 release.
We are always looking to the future and continuously strive to ensure that Moonfruit’s offering evolves in parallel with the digital world we live in. Being the innovative leader when it comes to ‘democratising the web for everyone’ is a vision we passionately hold very close to every decision we make.
Social and Cultural Moonfruit
The team at Moonfruit is very tight-knit; we share a large open plan office space together with a relaxed, easy going atmosphere. No office hierarchies here, just friendly, intelligent individuals working together to provide high quality software. We have a fabulous central London location, our offices overlook Oxford Street, surrounded by a great array of eateries and of course lots of shops!
Moonfruit’s extra-curricular activities are rather special too; we recently celebrated our office’s cultural diversity with an International Food Day, we have a Moonfruitee of the Month poll, summer parties, Movember, baking days and a monthly company stand up, which is followed by drinks at the local pubs and bars. Add to this the fact that the office is seemingly always supplied with a constant stream of cakes and treats; we’re beginning to sound pretty dreamy right?
Here’s what some of the company’s newest starters and an old hand that we’re sadly saying goodbye to, have to say about Moonfruit;
“When I first joined Moonfruit I was quite surprised that a company so small could be doing so well and since I’ve been working here I’ve heard nothing but good words from customers about the software and support given. Everyone who works at Moonfruit are passionate about their jobs and it’s the kind of company where the customers come first. Moonfruit is a fantastic place to work and the opportunities for growth are endless and supported by all of the management team.”
Chris, Customer Support
“What I really like about Moonfruit is the friendly atmosphere in the office, where everybody is always ready to help one another out. Moonfruit is a great company to work for as it is very customer focused, it is evident that everybody working here really cares about what they’re doing.”
Charlotte, Content and Media Intern
“As someone leaving there are many reasons I'm going to be really sad not to be here anymore. Firstly, it’s an awesome collection of people, who genuinely get along together in a really nice way, and the management team are especially caring and understanding. Things are obviously changing as the company grows, but it certainly still feels like a family, and everyone wants to do their best and works hard at it. We also have an interesting set of problems to solve, both feature based and purely technical and we try to do things properly (source control, decent bug tracking, decent processes, code review, testing). There’s lots and lots of lovely coffee, cakes are always brought in and birthdays are celebrated! And finally, open plan offices are often pretty grim, but this is a really nice office.”
Alex, Software Developer
