A leading digital agency in Leeds is currently looking for a keen Web / Wordpress Developer to join a growing team. You’ll be working with a number of different departments and directly with clients on a number of externally facing projects including greenfield Wordpress builds.
What we’d like you to have:
? 2-years working experience: The projects you’ll be working on will be substantial and occasionally complex, as a result we’d like you have sufficient experience to take this in your stride.
? Good communication skills: You’ll be working closely with our design and client services teams to transform client briefs into a reality. You’ll also occasionally be required to liaise directly with clients to provide updates on projects. Being able to communicate effectively on progress to teams and clients, as well as highlighting any problems you encounter means nobody gets an unpleasant surprise.
? Critical thinking: Whilst we love our clients, they aren’t developers. You may find that there is a better/more efficient solution that outlined in a client brief. We want you to have the confidence in your own ability to be able to suggest improvements and alternative methods rather than blindly following orders.
? Solid organisational skills: As a busy agency, you may find yourself working on multiple projects simultaneously. Being able to manage your time to ensure that no proverbial balls get dropped is a skill you’ll need.
The technical bits:
? Strong Wordpress skills: A major part of your role will be a significant project involving Wordpress. You therefore need to be comfortable building custom themes, plugins and deploying sites
? Front-end knowledge: Including HTML5, CSS3, LESS and JS
? Cross-browser testing: Ideally with device agnostic development
? Good comprehension of web accessibility
? Understanding of the principles and implementation of SEO
? Website building: We always look to provide lightweight and lightning-quick websites for our clients.
? Responsive best practices: a good understanding of the theory and how to actually implement them.
It would be a bonus if you had:
? Experience with jQuery, Greensock, Angular, React, Vue.js
? Experience with server architecture
What’s in it for you:
You’re getting more than just a career: you’re investing in your future and wellness.
Our benefits include, but aren’t limited to:
? Competitive salary
? Working in a great, expanding team
? Opportunity to grow within the role
? Relaxed working environment
? Working on a range of engaging projects
? Experiencing working with a wide variety of brands
? Company Macbook Pro (or equivalent)
? Quarterly team events
? Free tea and coffee and the occasional (regular) treat
? Great music in the office
This is a great opportunity to join a rapidly growing digital agency where you will take the lead on their web projects and be responsible for developing professional Wordpress sites for clients. If you are interested in this vacancy please APPLY NOW for immediate consideration.
