Junior Web Developer

Summary

We’re looking to expand our team so that we can expand our offering, not only into new, bigger, and better ecommerce websites but also into software development over the next few years. As part of the company’s recent explosive growth, we are looking to recruit a primarily front-end junior web developer to join our growing digital team. Your primary focus will be on the development of the website cutmyplastic.co.uk, however, there will also be work required for multiple other sites including spaces.uk, orlajames.co.uk, and other new sites and tools in the near future. We are a unique ecommerce company in that we attempt to keep as much of our systems internal, so our manufacturing, sorting, and packing systems are also developed in house - so there are plenty of experiences available.

You will be expected to work mostly onsite, in the office in Small Dole, Henfield under the guidance of our team of two web developers, with some flexibility for working from home once fully incorporated into the team. You will be right at the heart of the operations with the inspiring Founder, Managing Director, Customer Service Team, and Manufacturing all under the same roof, as well as the Digital team you will reside in - currently four people strong and growing.
