Junior Web Developer - top 30 digital & content marketing agency
Our client is on the hunt for a junior web developer. They’re looking for someone who is fuelled by learning – you don’t need to know everything, but you’ve got to have a hearty thirst for digital and web; who has great initiative and ambition – you might not know how to help yet, but you’ll do your best to figure something out; is great to work with – team oriented, enthusiastic and loves what they do; and ideally has agency experience, if only six to nine months.
What you’ll be doing
This is a roll your sleeves up and get stuck in kind of culture, so you’ll be exposed to all kinds of projects that branch into the world of web development. You’ll be working alongside senior developers to maintain and extend the site’s they’ve lovingly crafted for clients both existing and new. These could be websites that look like websites (typically WordPress CMS projects), or websites that don’t particularly look like websites (like animation centric interactive web experiences). Building new components and modules, creating plugins for WordPress, connecting software together with APIs and learning best practice along the way.
Tech you need to know… (good exposure to most of the following):
- WordPress + PHP
- Debugging / testing for cross compatibility
- SASS / LESS
- Knowledge / interest in current trends and development techniques
- Creative Suite – Adobe etc.
With some knowledge of… (non-essential but bonus kudos):
- UX / UI skills & understanding
- D3 / Canvas / Data Visualization libraries
- JS Task runners (Gulp / Grunt)
- HTML emails
- App development (iOS / android / PhoneGap)
- Marketo knowledge
In return you’ll receive a competitive salary, 25 holiday days pro rata, plenty of training opportunities, a pension, the chance to work with some lovely people and an office dog.
If this sounds like you, get in touch with me, Mark Davies.
