We provide effective design solutions across many areas of design, from branding to packaging and print to digital; over a varied range of business sectors.

The Role:
We’re looking for an ambitious and experienced Mid-Senior Full Stack Developer to join our team. Being part of a collaborative creative agency you will be involved in all stages of a project and have the opportunity to contribute throughout and help us make the right technical decisions.

You’ll be responsible for delivering exceptional coded websites, campaign sites and web apps for our clients. We’re looking for a developer who’s able to learn new technologies quickly, stay ahead of trends, can troubleshoot problems, and have an excellent understanding of best practices. You’ll be capable of mentoring and inspiring other developers and play a role in the expansion of the team. This is a mid-senior role and while you don’t need any fancy qualifications, relevant professional experience is a must.

Requirements & Skills:
• At least 2 years’ relevant experience.
• Comfortable working with HTML, CSS/SASS and Vanilla Javascript.
• Proficient in at least one server side technology such as NodeJs, PHP or similar.
• Comfortable working with databases such as MongoDb and MySQL.

• Worked in a modern front end framework such as Angular or React using build systems such as Grunt, Gulp or Webpack.
• Can build against 3rd party APIs.
• Experience of working with GitHub.
• Knowledge of unit testing, preferably Jasmine, and the importance of TDD.
• Good understanding of cross browser development and responsive design.

In addition to the above, here are some of the nice to haves:
• Experience working in an agency and a client facing environment.
• Involvement in Open Source projects.
• Practical knowledge of OOP in any language.
• Photoshop/sketch experience would be a bonus but not essential.
• A great eye for detail and drive to create market leading solutions.
• Project experience in working with teams as well as under your own initiative.
