Web Developer

About the job

We are looking for an enthusiastic individual to join our team as a graduate / junior web developer.  This is a fantastic opportunity to get a foot in the door in this exciting industry and learn from experienced and talented professionals.

We have well defined production processes and coding standards so you’ll be getting into good habits from the outset. That said, these are always evolving and we welcome everyone’s input, so if you’ve got ideas we want to hear them.

We don’t believe in giving the newbie all the boring jobs so you’ll get your hands on production code from day one. You will be working with JavaScript and PHP and will become familiar with the best frameworks out there like Vue and Laravel. 

About you

You are naturally inquisitive. You were the kid who took things apart to see how they worked. Solving problems is at the heart of everything you do and you view every obstacle as an exciting challenge just waiting for an elegant solution.

You’re looking for a career that will never get boring in an industry that is constantly evolving.

You’re not a complete software beginner; you already have a solid understanding of programming fundamentals and a number of completed projects under your belt. 

The focus of this role is server-side code so you’ve spent some time working on the ‘moving parts’ of a website or web application using a language like PHP, Python, Ruby or Node.js. 

Whilst commercial development experience or degree level education aren’t essential, either will be a bonus.

About the company

We are a friendly team of problem solving, multi-skilled digital experts who work closely together to create genuinely useful products for good causes. 

Most of our clients are within the not-for-profit and charity sector and we’re passionate about helping them use digital tools to build big ideas and make a measurable impact on the world.

As well as developing websites and web applications we run a growing SaaS product; BrandStencil.

We are dedicated to helping train the next generation of web professionals and actively recruit junior positions. Over the past few years we’ve watched a number of talented and committed people grow into highly skilled developers.

At the heart of the company ethos is a spirit of collaboration and autonomy, giving people freedom and trusting them to deliver first class work. We believe that a healthy work life balance is key to this and offer a range of flexible working options to keep everyone happy, motivated and energised.

Diversity matters
