Talented front-end developer job for Web 2.0 company in Oxford

The company I work for, 2Degrees, is looking for a front-end developer to join our team.

Are you a CSS monkey?

We need a CSS monkey with a good working knowledge of browser quirks and the ability to get even IE6 looking good (although you don’t have to like it). It would help if you don’t run away screaming from Javascript and can play well with the code monkeys.
