Senior Web Developer -

Brighton and Hove

Closing date: 12/07/2018

We believe that making a website should be simple. But with over 50% of small businesses in the UK without one, we want to break down the barriers and ensure that every small business can benefit from being seen online. We believe in doing everything we can to help individuals and small businesses maximise their online presence.

We are committed to providing great service, straight-talking information and the right tools for making business online a success. We believe in our nation of shopkeepers and want to ensure that everyone is able to leverage the advantages of digital innovation.

Our offices are based just past Brighton University in a sustainable development. Our building is made with local materials such as sweet chestnut timber cladding and East Sussex clay, and we’re powered by wind turbines, solar heating panels and collected surface water. We strive to work in a way that is sustainable, ethically responsible and environmentally friendly. We value integrity, honesty, transparency and thoughtfulness.

Customer success is at the heart of our business: we are successful when our customers achieve their dreams.
