Working with us

We’re passionate about creating success, both for our clients and within our team. Our core values are anchored in the 5 Ps (of course one is Pragmatism):

Pragmatism: Good judgement sets apart from others. We believe that the only constant is change itself; especially in digital. We think that pragmatism is the most effective framework for making decisions in this landscape

We see challenges not problems. We know that a positive mind is more likely to find a solution because it expects to succeed. Solutions create success

Our own team is the most precious and important part of our business. Earning a place on that team takes individual effort and self-responsibility but also partnership with your teammates

Strive for professionalism and expertise. We each need to learn as much as we can and to be as good as possible at applying that knowledge in helping others both within our team and for our clients


Performance: To be successful ourselves, we must help our clients be successful. The most reliable way to achieve success is hard work and perseverance

If you find yourself saying “that’s me!” when reading the five Ps, this could well be the role for you. We’re a fast growing agency in the heart of Brighton with an international client base. Although specialising in WordPress projects, the work we do is hugely varied - from magazine and publishing sites to global drinks brands. Over 28% of the internet is built on WordPress, so there’s no shortage of exciting work out there, come and help us deliver it.

We can give you

  • A great working environment in central Brighton
  • Genuine care about your personal development and happiness at work
  • The opportunity to work with some brilliant clients, and our lovely team
  • Fresh fruit & veg for smoothies
  • Yearly trip to WordCamp Europe - next year we're heading to Serbia!
  • A monthly wellness budget - cash towards anything from yoga classes to equipment
  • Flexible and remote working where possible
