Design. Development. Why choose?

You love digital design. But you’re just as passionate about the development side of things. Which means you’ll be in your element here at Blackbridge Communications.

Working as part of a small, nimble team, you’ll be at the heart of our creative process, translating broad conceptual ideas into awesome digital experiences.

We’re looking for a passionate designer/developer who’ll relish the opportunity to create rich, user-focused interfaces, websites and applications for the likes of Heathrow, Bupa and Paddy Power Betfair.

Our clients work with us because we’re innovative. Big on digital. And always thinking ahead. For our people, our vibrant culture is a big draw too. We’re fun, friendly and down to earth.

Underneath it all though is the kind of drive and curiosity that turns every great idea into a truly attention-grabbing one.

What you’ll be doing:

• Carrying out UX, user interface design and front-end development work for websites and mobile apps
• Refining designs in the browser during development
• Creating pattern libraries and design systems for larger projects

Who we’re looking for:

You’re someone who always thinks critically about any development work – you don’t just do; you think. You explore different ways of working and you’re not afraid to rework things if you find a better approach. In terms of specific skills, we’d like you to have the following (but it’s not a problem if they’re not a perfect match – it’s more important that you’re a great fit for the team):

• Solid commercial web development experience, including some in an agency environment
• A good understanding of, and genuine passion for, all things digital
• UX/UI experience (sitemaps, wireframes)
• Strong skills in Adobe Creative Suite
• Strong skills in typography, layout and design
• Attention to detail that verges on obsession
• A self-motivated, ambitious, enthusiastic and organised approach
• HTML and CSS: a good working knowledge of cross-browser challenges and extensive experience of developing standards-compliant mark-up
• JavaScript experience (ES2016+)
• Knowledge of RESTful APIs and JSON
• Experience with Git or other source control systems
• Strong communication skills with a good standard of written and spoken English

Experience with any of these would be a plus:

• Sketch; additional techniques and technologies such as LESS/SASS, BEM, Node.js, Webpack/Gulp/npm scripts; other JavaScript frameworks, such as jQuery, React and Vue

Ready to bring your extensive digital and development skills to wide-reaching projects for high-profile clients?
