Full Stack Web Developer (International Development) - Aptivate

Brighton and Hove

Closing date: 13/11/2017

Aptivate is a worker-run not-for-profit digital agency focusing on IT in international development.

We believe IT can empower, inform and connect people all over the world with positive developmental outcomes. We choose to work on projects that have positive social benefit.

We use agile practices in all our work; we open source the software we write and we use and promote participatory practices with our clients, with end-users, and internally. We are an equality-based non-hierarchical organisation; we make all our important decisions together, using consensus.

We are an equal opportunities employer and welcome applications from all suitably qualified persons regardless of their race, sex, disability, religion/belief, sexual orientation or age.

Job Description:

We are looking for someone who has skills in full-stack web application development. We'd expect at least two years experience in web development, with HTML, CSS, Javascript and a backend framework. We'd also expect knowledge of common development tools such as git, experience using unix-like systems and some experience with automated testing.

Our favourite framework is Django although we sometimes use Drupal, Wordpress, CKAN or other frameworks when appropriate. We would expect you to have experience with a web application framework such as Django or Rails. Django is of particular interest to us.

Although we sometimes create simple websites most of our work is web applications that involve backend business logic, database access, and integration with other applications so we would expect you to have experience writing that kind of application.

It probably goes without saying but you should be able to write clean maintainable code, be keen to learn, be self-motivated, and have good communication skills.
