We expect you to be a tech-savvy professional, who is curious about new digital technologies and aspires to combine usability with visual design.
Ultimately, you should be able to create a functional and attractive digital environment for our company and our clients, ensuring great user experience.
The successful candidate should have a background in Front-End Web development ideally with Digital Agency experience and Design (Adobe suite of products) experience.
Therefore, the main demonstrable skills you’ll have will include:
You will have built up an ability and understanding of website development that allows you to transform visual designs into compliant, responsive HTML/CSS that works on the current plethora of devices and browsers. Because of your skill set and experience future browser and device developments will represent an exciting challenge for you.
In keeping with software developments from Adobe, our current workflow uses Adobe XD to generate layouts and if you are not already conversant with this software you will need to become so. You will of course already be comfortable working with Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and Fireworks.
Working as part of an experienced Development team you’ll be performing a number of tasks - website build, modification and maintenance, HTML5/CSS3 and Front End Development work linking your elegant code to backend CMS and MySQL, Postgres and SQL Server databases which our development team will be connecting to in either .NET, PHP or Ruby.
An appreciation of good design and the importance of the user experience would be seen as beneficial. The role and the nature of the client requirements will mean that you will also be engaged in the design concepting for new websites, providing support for existing and future websites, data input, client liaison and website upgrades and maintenance.
In addition, you'll also need to be well-organised, work well as part of a team even when located remotely and keep calm under pressure. As the role shall be partly client-facing you'll need to demonstrate good communication skills at all times.
We are very open to all applicants who can demonstrate the required skills, regardless of how, when or where they were acquired.
Ideal Personal attributes:
Candidates are expected to present and discuss code examples and explain the rationale behind design and implementation decisions during interview. Candidates will also be expected to spend a few hours with members of the team, if shortlisted, where they will undertake some relevant tests which will require hands-on coding. We feel this helps us gain a real understanding of your skills and also allows you experience a small piece of life in the agency.
The role is expected to develop, and the successful candidate will be able to take part in every stage of the software lifecycle and utilise a range of growing new technologies. Teamwork is an essential part of the job as is a passion for web development and an interest in mobile technologies.
