Sitting within the customer support team, the Support Developer takes responsibility for overseeing existing clients' websites and email - you'll essentially be the first port of call for any issues.
 
You'll be answering support calls and taking down full details of any issues reported by clients. Once diagnosed, you'll be tasked with fixing issues or deploying patches where you can, or escalating when necessary to second tier support.
 
You'll be handling multiple support requests at any one time and so will be expected to organise prioritise accordingly, while always ensuring communication with the client.
 
What experience you need
Problem-solving skills are essential to the Support Developer role and you'll need to be able to quickly diagnose technical problems with websites.
 
As such, we require a good grasp of both front-end and back-end technologies, such as PHP, MySQL, HTML, CSS, as well as experience working with integrations into payment gateways CRMs and ERPs.
 
As the role involves a high deal of customer facing duties, strong communication skills and a confident and calming nature are essential.
 
What you'll get in return
There's a basic salary offering of up to £28k, based on experience, and the opportunity to work in a fresh and forward-thinking agency. The company pride themselves in promoting an environment where you will always be learning new techniques and skills.
