As this is a junior role, in-house training will be provided to get you up to speed and to progress your skill-set.

What you’ll be doing

As a junior developer and designer you’ll be part of the web dev team, working closely with our creative lead to design and develop custom websites using the latest technologies and processes. You will be creating user-focused digital experiences for a diverse range of clients and industries everyday that will challenge your skill set and encourage you to think-outside-the-box. You will also be responsible for website updates, supporting clients and managing both Joomla & WordPress based websites.

  • Providing an all-rounded, positive attitude to your work.

What you need to know

  • A relaxed and fun office environment.
  • Regular social activities and days out of the office.
  • Free coffee, tea and biscuits.
  • Monthly trips to the pub or Nandos or wherever (depending on what we fancy).
  • Apple iMac loaded with all the tools you need.
  • Training available. We understand that personal development is huge, so in-house training is offered.
  • No project is the same. Every web project, big or small is different so you’ll always have the chance to design and build new and exciting features.
  • Flexible working environments. Work in the office or remote, it’s up to you. For this role, we require a minimum of 3 days in the office every week for training/support, team meetings and general collaboration.
  • Regular 1-2-1s with your team manager to make sure you’re happy.
