  • Be familiar with Magento and WordPress CMS systems
  • Understand and practice GIT and GIT flow on a daily basis
  • Demonstrate proven experience of site building using the latest technologies
  • Debug problems with existing WordPress plugins and setups
  • Diagnose server issues (especially with Linux based systems – any Windows based server experience is an advantage)
  • Communicate clearly with other colleagues about your work and progress during daily standups
  • Be passionate about site speed and performance and the techniques that goes along with it
  • Solicit feedback from others and show eagerness to improve

It Will Also Be Great If You Were Comfortable With

  • Front-end frameworks (Bootstrap, Foundation)
  • Setting up task runners (Gulp)
  • WordPress Plugin directory (ie. having the ability to identify appropriate off-the-shelf vs. custom build solution and the relevant tradeoffs)
  • Using version control and dependency management
  • Learning new things as web development changes all the time
  • SEO and Accessibility best practices
  • Using Ionic as an app framework
  • Use of JavaScript frameworks is a bonus (Angular specifically)

Benefits

  • Salary of £25k-£30k based on experience.
  • A fun but professional work environment within a great team.
  • 29 days paid holiday (20 + 1 (birthday) + 8 national).
  • Monthly one to ones.
  • Monthly company pub lunch or team activity.

You must have a driving license and access to your own vehicle as the office is not accessible using public transport

The role would ideally suit a candidate with at least two years experience working in an agency, who is seeking to take the next step in their career – although we believe a candidate with the right attitude and motivation can be an exception.

This is a great opportunity to join our growing team and work on some exciting projects across a wide range of clients.

Salary is negotiable dependent on experience and the right candidate.
