HIRED: Web Developer

Reading Time 3 MINUTES

We’re on the lookout for a Web Developer!

The Us Bit

This is an ace opportunity for a progressive and ambitious developer who wants to try out new technologies on a diverse mix of projects. Of course, we build websites but we all know that design and development are so much more than pretty pictures and websites. We’re looking for the right type of person to use their development skills in order to problem-solve and create exciting and engaging outcomes that work effortlessly.

We want you there from the very start of projects, mixing with our designers and strategists within our briefing workshops, and truly getting to grips with the vision for the brand and web presence whilst understanding how you can apply that through your skill-sets.

Engaging our development team in early strategy sessions means that we’re able to think about projects in a very different way and we’re looking for someone who’ll speak up and is willing to share their ideas and interpretations. You’ll be working closely with the team, from design through development, to launch and post-launch support, so you’ll need to clearly communicate technical restrictions, but actively contribute solutions and new ideas, identifying challenges before they can become problems.

You’ll be eager to continually learn, open to new ideas and coding to a pre-agreed standard. You’ll want to try new frameworks and platforms, understanding the likes of Shopify and not be scared by Magento. We’re constantly embracing new technologies, learning and thinking about how we can integrate them into our work and what doors they open – we’re not “just a WordPress Agency”! 

Our clients deserve the very best, so you will have a great eye for detail, a readiness to go the extra mile and have a ‘No probs’ attitude. You’ll also be able to confidently talk to clients about the development process in a way that they will understand, after all not everyone knows what ‘dev’ is!

We understand how important it is that you have time and space to focus, so occasional remote working is also something we embrace. We live by the saying ‘you only get out what you put in’, so all of our team are rewarded providing they’re willing to put in the work and positively contribute to our workplace culture.

This is the perfect opportunity for the right person to continue to develop their skills, grow into a role integral to our studio, and keep us on our toes with their knowledge of the newest and most innovative dev practices!
