Front-end Craft CMS Web Developer
Front-end Web Developer
We have an exciting opportunity for an ambitious and progressive front-end web developer to join our team.
Do you want to be involved in creating some badass websites/applications with amazing clients? Want to work with a team of creatives that genuinely want to help support you in levelling up in your career? Do you want to be in a compassionate environment, the sort of place where it doesn’t feel like a chore to turn up for work?
Then we think we’re the place for you…if you’re interested.
A bit about us
We’re a brand and digital agency based in Nottingham with a team of 8, and we’ve been around for the past 17 years. In the last 6, we’ve grown rapidly in digital, with our focus always being on developing with Craft. We’re now a verified partner for Craft CMS and working toward Commerce verification.
Regarding the team and our culture, we’re a close-knit, collaborative team. Everyone gets the opportunity to have their say, and ideas are always welcome and heard. We’re highly creative and extremely supportive. Work-life balance is important to all of us. We encourage holidays, being open (so we can all help each other), and advocating for our team. We’re all our biggest champions. We’re a hybrid workplace, so you can work both in the studio and at home throughout the week—but we do our best to make sure the studio feels like a home-from-home too.
We’re ambitious and keen to keep pushing for bigger wins and more great clients. We believe in doing exceptional work for exceptional people.
