Job Description

We’re looking to expand our team of creative minds with an experienced and progressive developer who can work closely with our design team to create sites that are beautiful, original, and function seamlessly.  

We work as a team on every project that comes through the door, from small scale holding pages for local business, to global campaigns for international brands. We collaborate on everything, so are looking to find someone that relishes working in a team, and can bring something fresh to our work.

Job Description

As part of a small, dedicated team you will share responsibility for all aspects of devising, building and maintaining websites for our clients. From setting up hosting and local working environments to complete site builds and creating new user interactions. We work primarily with WordPress – because it’s great – but we also incorporate a whole host of other CMS and frameworks into our projects, whatever is best for getting the job done.

Requirements

We are looking for an experienced web developer who:

  • Can show us some great websites they have built from start to finish

  • Has at least intermediate skills in PHP, JavaScript, jQuery, WordPress, HTML, CSS

  • Can work well with modern APIs

  • Has excellent communications skills, both written and verbal, and the ability to work well in a team

  • The ability to manage your own workload, prioritising and juggling various jobs at a time

  • Is able to be patient with an irritating, but well-meaning dog

Nice to have

  • At least 2 years experience working professionally as a developer

  • Above average PHP, competent ES6 or back-end development skills

  • Experience setting up server environments and managing hosting

  • Solid design sensibilities

  • Experience building plugins, or working with deeper functionality within WordPress

  • A Github Profile or similar where we can take a look at some of your code

  • Skills with the latest framework hotness - whatever that might be at the time of reading

  • Tolerance for listening to Enya on a semi-regular basis

Working for Us

We’re a small, closely knit team, so a positive, friendly and self-determined attitude is really important. We work very closely with our clients, and are focused on creating positive and meaningful relationships.

We like to give our team the freedom to be creative and really flex their talents – if you’re keen to keep learning and expand your range of skills, this could be the opportunity you’re after.

We also provide regular personal development days, in which each member of the team are encouraged to try something completely new. We know that inspiration can come from the most unlikely places so the hope is that whatever benefits you take from these days, you’ll bring them back with you.

So, if you live and breathe code, want to work somewhere you can have a real impact and  love seeing projects through from start to finish, well… what are you waiting for? Send a CV, some website examples and cover letter to us by clicking APPLY NOW that shows us why you’d be a good fit.
