We’re looking for a full-time front-end web developer to aid our team in producing fantastic web experiences at our offices in central London.

Your CV says…

Skills

  • Strong grasp and passion for front-end development.
  • Knowledge of Content Management Systems such as WordPress.
  • Has touched on some PHP or other server-side language.

Ambition

  • Maintain a working knowledge of new web technologies.
  • Interested in gaining more experience in backend development.

Experience

  • At least 2 years’ experience in a professional development environment.
  • Have planned and implemented entire projects from design to launch.
  • Worked on collaborative projects with designers, developers and clients.

What you’d be doing

Every member of the team has a keen interest in what makes for a compelling user experience, and a successful online business. You’ll share this passion for products and the web, and want to contribute to the team’s ideas regardless of which project you’re working on.

Implementing designs and interactions

Working closely with the design team you’ll help turn deliverables into functioning responsive templates using HTML, SCSS and JavaScript. We have been developing our best practices over time and look for you to join us in progressing and following them in all of your work.

Front-end fanatic

With every day introducing a new standard, framework and build tool you are keen to keep yourself informed and make good choices on what to use and when. You are performance and accessibility minded and always focus on the user when making decisions.

Creativity in the browser

Somewhere between design and front-end is where you add your magic. There are always opportunities for you to introduce finishing touches to an interface – be it animations, clever interactions or SVG wizardry.

WordPress

Our chosen tool for content-driven projects is WordPress, you will be supported by the backend developers throughout these projects but an understanding of this CMS and PHP would be beneficial.

JavaScript

You’re interested in venturing deeper into the world of JavaScript than jQuery and may have already done so.

Back-end

A large part of our work is scoping and building complex, bespoke applications. If you’re keen to dive into this world and learn more about the nuts and bolts behind these it would be a plus.
