Current Openings

iOS Developer

We're looking for an experienced iOS developer to work alongside our small but talented team of designers and developers to create a new mobile app. You’ll help us build and launch the first official Car Throttle application to millions of app-hungry users, and will continue to iterate the product as we continue to think mobile first.

The ideal candidate will have:

  • Outstanding engineering talent proven by great work, interesting hobby projects or open source contributions
  • At least 2 years of experience in software development with a strong command of object oriented principles
  • At least 2 years of experience in iOS development using Objective C or, ideally, Swift
  • An insatiable hunger for metrics, measuring and understanding what our millions of users want
  • Fluency in writing both self-documented and well-documented code, explaining methods in good English.

Nice to have:

  • An app in the App Store you're particularly proud of
  • A keen eye for design and best UX practices
  • A GitHub profile you'd like us to check out, or an active portfolio. Of course it looks as good on the tablet as it does on mobile and desktop

Staff Writer

We’re looking for someone bright, motivated and passionate to join our expanding editorial team.

Requirements include excellent language and grammar skills and the ability to think outside the box, to find a unique angle on new stories and to create content that people love to read, share and comment on. This will include the curation of ‘Top 10’ listicles, quizzes and viral video posts as they are released.

A deep knowledge of cars old and new is a must, but we won’t ask you to recite the laughable torque figures of Japanese cars beginning with H. We’re simply looking for a car enthusiast who loves, lives and breathes the automotive world, and who wants to be part of an exciting, young company where voices are always heard.

The ideal candidate will have:

  • Excellent language skills and high standards of grammar
  • Highly motivated and active on social media
  • Follow and create new trends (think outside the box)
  • An insatiable hunger for metrics, measuring and understanding what our millions of users want
  • Be able to create engaging/shareable/viral content quickly
  • Be willing to occasionally work weekends and evenings - this isn’t a normal 9-5 job

Meet Some Of Us

  • James Southorn, UX

    I'm the man who loves colour here at CT. When I'm not knee deep in Photoshop, I'm buying outrageously colourful clothes and playing Destiny in my PJs.
  • Alex Kersten, Editor

    Outside of shooting vids, editing and being harassed for my height, I spend my time driving cool cars, going to the gym and spending imaginary money on my future track car.
  • Darren Cassey, Staff Writer

    When I'm not writing about the latest cars I've been driving, I'm usually honing my sim racing skills at home or taking press cars for a blast in the local countryside.
