Electric Putty is on a mission to bring beautiful software to the world.

We’ve been around since 2004 and work with charities and organisations who are committed to having a positive impact on the world. From campaigning tools, publishing tools, websites and mobile apps we're helping our clients transform the way they work and deliver their services.

We are a family friendly company and offer as much flexibility as we can so your work fits with the rhythm of your life - and not the other way round.

You will be involved in the full development life-cycle, from planning to coding to delivery. You will be an excellent communicator, have a pragmatic, problem-solving attitude and a genuine passion for what you do.

Over time the role could evolve to include some managerial responsibilities such as running a development team and working with the project team on scheduling and capacity management.

  • PHP (specifically within modern frameworks like Laravel and Symfony)
  • Databases (specifically mySQL)
  • Working with CMSs (we use Craft these days and support a number of complex ExpressionEngine sites)
