We are looking for a new Junior Developer to join our team. We are a creative agency based in Summertown that designs and creates awesome new brands, websites, and print materials. We have the pleasure of working with some nationally recognised brands and some small local companies across many sectors - we are deliberately sector neutral, so the work here can be extremely varied to maximise the fun.

You and the job

You’d be joining our team of developers, we mainly work with WordPress and we love it.

You will have had some experience building a web portfolio and be familiar with standard web building languages such as HTML, CSS (preferably using SASS/LESS) and jQuery/JavaScript. In return, you will have the opportunity to develop your skills in PHP (WordPress), and be taught how to work with Javascript libraries and frameworks such as React.JS, hacking around with various APIs and lots more over time.

What gets us really excited is front end sparkles and that is something we would expect you to demonstrate, you will also be taught how to build the back-end of our WordPress sites. We are also looking for somebody that has an insatiable appetite to grow and learn. You will be joining a small team of developers who work very closely together on projects both small and large and will be involved in the build process from start to finish as soon as you are comfortable to do so. If this sounds like you then you may be the person we are looking for.

You should be a great communicator who can explain to regular humans the ramifications and awesomenesses of choices of technology, and also to have and describe great ideas about how to take concepts to the next level.
