The Role

We have an exciting opportunity for an enthusiastic, highly motivated developer to join our team. We’re not a run-of-the-mill WordPress agency, although we do have sites on that platform, this role is a fantastic opportunity for you to learn how to build headless websites.

Key skills and experience:

  • Strong coding skills with clean code writing.

  • Knowledge of HTML, CSS/SASS, JavaScript.

  • Working knowledge of PHP and MySQL.

  • Interest in new and emerging technologies and frameworks.

  • Innovative thinking.

  • Excellent attention to detail.

  • Good communication skills, and the ability to work effectively in teams to deliver projects on time.

Not essential skills, but nice to haves:

  • Experience with WordPress/WooCommerce or other PHP-based frameworks or platforms.

  • JavaScript frameworks such as Vue JS or React.

  • Experience with TailwindCSS, Bootstrap, or other CSS frameworks or utilities.

  • Understanding of Git commands and version control.
