Anyway, enough about us... who are you?

Who are you?

You will be tackling interesting challenges for a diverse range of clients to deliver quality and robust solutions using open-source PHP web technology on Wordpress, CraftCMS and Laravel frameworks.

You will be able to effectively devise and communicate ideas, and turn business requirements into technical solutions (both with our team and clients). You will demonstrate your passion for delivering maintainable and secure code, as well as inclusive and accessible user experiences.

As part of this role, you will:

  • Attend client meetings to gather briefs and communicate ideas.
  • Analyse clients’ requirements and write/enrich the user stories and tickets with clear scope and acceptance criteria.
  • Triage and troubleshoot technical issues on the web platforms we support
  • Deliver quality, robust code on Wordpress, CraftCMS and Laravel frameworks for a range of clients
  • Support the QA team and embrace automation to find and fix bugs
  • Follow our Agile process and collaborate closely with our Project Manager, Quality Assurance and DevOps team to see any changes following our process end to end
  • Support the team to define and enforce quality engineering standards

What are we looking for?

  • 3+ years of WordPress with demonstrable complex modules integration (i.e. search, API integration…)
  • 1+ years’ experience with CraftCMS
  • Fluency with responsive HTML, CSS and JavaScript (Vue.JS or similar)
  • Proficiency with management tools such as JIRA, BitBucket/Git
  • Clear communication with clients

Where will I be based?

We’re a hybrid business. What does that mean? Well, it means that we recognise flexibility is key for most people to be fulfilled, enjoy their work and deliver great results. Most of the role can be done remotely with some occasional visits to our London / Herts office. Due to some clients’ and vetting requirements, this role should ideally be based in the UK/EU.
