Want to make a difference?

You’ll be working closely with a range of disciplines across our production teams including front-end, back-end, product owners, project managers, account managers and more to deliver high quality solutions. Whilst the main focus will be development, you’ll also find yourself participating in sprint planning, estimation, testing, code reviews, bug fixing, deployments and working on new projects, implementing new features as well as maintaining and improving the existing functionality through enhancements or assisting our support team. This role offers excellent career development, with opportunities to progress.

  • Understanding of HTML and performant CSS
  • Knowledge of SASS pre-processors
  • Knowledge of JavaScript including ES6 features, object orientated and functional programming

  • Knowledge of accessibility standards
  • Knowledge of SEO principles

  • Experience with Sitecore CMS.
  • Some knowledge of S.O.L.I.D principles.
  • Experience with client side frameworks such as Vue, React or Angular
  • Some Knowledge of JavaScript unit testing and frameworks such as Mocha, Jasmine or Jest

What we offer:

  • Annual Pluralsight subscription
  • 23 day’s holiday + public holidays (incremental each year +1 day up to 25)
  • Holiday trading applications (buy or sell up to 5 days per annum)
  • Flexible working start and finish times
