Senior Go Engineer
Ever thought about what you would do if your Twitter account, Instagram or Facebook suddenly disappeared, or your digital footprint vanished? How would you retrieve memories of significant events? How would you feel if the last 2, 3 or 5 years of your personal history was unexpectedly gone… forever?
Welcome to MirrorWeb. Our cloud-native web and social archiving technology allows organisations to create permanent, immutable records of all online communications. Archive the UK’s digital history from the Magna Carta to the present day? We’ve done it. Made The National Archives one of the highest hit UK websites? We’ve done it. Prepared the UK for Brexit (if we ever leave) by archiving the entire library of EU law? We’ve done that too.
Essentially, everything not saved, will be lost.
If you want to work somewhere with a real purpose, preserving history for our future generations and make a huge impact… look no further – come and work for MirrorWeb!
