You must be commercially minded in your approach to development, focussing on providing top level digital solutions within the time constraints of pre-defined budgets.
Flexible working is encouraged in our company. We use industry leading software to delegate tasks and expect you to religiously record your activities and time spent to assist in the productivity of your team. Weekly development sprints will be something you manage yourself. We expect you to get the job done - in or out of the office - and trust in you to deliver your very best with the freedom provided.
As part of a small collaborative team (currently made up of 3 developers and the Digital Production Director) you will be responsible for rapid development and testing of functionality across a variety of projects, taking ownership of individual elements along the way. Self-motivation is a must, logical thinking essential. You must be capable of taking a development concept from start to finish ensuring accuracy and high standards of coding throughout.
Day to Day
Our projects range from simple Brochure sites through to e-commerce systems and a handful of complex web applications. You must be as happy taking a template from our front end developer and integrating it into our CMS as developing bespoke functionality and integrating third party applications.

We also support a range of legacy PHP projects so you will be expected to meet the technical debugging challenges with enthusiasm when required.
To assist in the development of our PHP framework and CMS, Fridays are internal development days where you will collaborate with your colleagues to enhance the system in ways which will benefit the long term goals of the business and moreover boost efficiency in future projects.
