I did my placement at Elevate PR and was lucky enough to be hired once i finished my internship

Posted in News on 11 January 2017

Getting your first Public Relations role doesn't have to be difficult. Enrol on our Posgraduate Diploma in Public Relations with Arranged Work Experience and we will help you secure that first essential internship. See our graduate Sadhbh Higgins' story below:

"Fitzwilliam Institute Postgraduate Diploma is a great gateway to the world of PR. The course is extremely relevant with current industry case studies and topical PR trends at the forefront of every lecture. It’s so reassuring to know that your lecturers are industry professionals, meaning that every course topic is approached with authentic knowledge of the subject and first-hand experience in mind. The standout aspect of the course for me was the arranged work placement. The placement challenges you to put your knowledge to the test whilst growing and learning in a real working environment and is paramount in developing a true understanding of the ins and outs of PR. The experience gained whilst on work experience plays such a pivotal role in your approach to the exams and perhaps even more importantly, the road to future employment. I did my placement at Elevate PR and was lucky enough to be hired once i finished my internship. I'm happily still working away at Elevate PR as an Account Executive.", Sadhbh Higgins said.

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.
