If you are a Junior Developer...

It’s really important that you know HTML and CSS. We’d love you to be comfortable in JavaScript or have some PHP or Server knowledge, but it’s not a requirement.

  • Security best practices

You’ll get bonus points for...

  • JS Framework experience
  • Native iOS/Android skills
  • Experience of Craft CMS
  • Server/Devops experience
  • A.R/V.R experience
  • Shopify

What you’ll get...

  • £22-26k (Junior) / £26-32k (Middleweight), depending on experience
  • Long term growth prospects, mentoring and opportunities to lead projects
  • Great pension options and employee benefits package
  • Whatever kit you need
  • Fruit, good coffee/tea and quality biscuits
  • Regular Wagamama's. It's kind of a tradition.

How to apply…

Email with a link to your work. Plus a CV and covering email of less than 150 words on why you're perfect for the role. We will invite successful applicants to an interview (face-to-face or via Skype). You’ll be expected to present your work, have a chat about your experience and answer a few questions on front-end development. Ideally we'll want to find the perfect person by the end of March. But if it's sooner, that'll be fine by us!
