Full Stack Developer - Office / Remote Working - HTML5, CSS3, PHP, WordPress
Reading | £30,000 - £38,000 + Company Perks


We’re looking for an HTML5, CSS3 & PHP guru, with expertise or considerable experience in WordPress. You will be well versed in coding from scratch – taking UX designs and building them into search engine optimised, bespoke WordPress themes.

Your time, spent either working from home or the office, will be split between building brand new websites and providing support and updates to existing clients.

Your Experience:

You will have experience designing and building responsive and mobile optimised websites using standard-compliant HTML5 and CSS. You will be able to share a portfolio of impressive examples of live websites previously built or worked upon, which we’ll ask you to include within your application.

Experience building websites in a digital agency is desirable but, if not in an agency environment, then in a role where the development of multiple websites is the primary part of your role.

Front-end expertise required:

+ Proficient in HTML5, CSS3 & Javascript
+ Libraries like jQuery or Backbone.js
+ Able to code pixel perfect web pages
+ Ability to deliver front end code without using any frameworks
+ Familiar with and able to follow WCAG for accessible websites
+ Ability to deliver websites which are technically optimised for search engines
+ Able to cater for retina displays

Back-end expertise required:

+ Proficient in PHP & MySQL
+ Demonstrable experience creating bespoke WordPress themes
+ Ability to source plugins and adapt functionality where required
+ Ability to solve more complex problems by creating custom plugins / code
+ Creating user friendly WordPress admin areas with bespoke hints and tips to assist clients
+ Technical considerations for SEO

Other essential requirements:

+ Understanding of UX and ability to approach projects with a user centric approach and understanding
+ A general can-do attitude
+ Willingness to work outside of area of expertise
+ Ability to identify and solve problems quickly
+ Thorough in every area and takes pride in all work
+ Ability to think outside the box (and sometimes the spec) to achieve the best possible results
+ Able to highlight potential problems before they happen
+ An excellent telephone and email manner
+ Ability to talk with clients on their level without jargon and happy to be client-facing
+ Always keeping an eye out on future technology and a willingness to evolve skillset
+ An understanding of the technicalities of web server hosting & DNS

Nice to have but not essential:

+ Experience using Adobe XD to extract information to assist with development
+ Project management experience
+ Experience with other CMS like Magento, Joomla, Drupal or others
+ Experience with Google Analytics & Google Tag Manager
+ Experience with CRM systems like Zoho or Hubspot or at least linking them with website forms

The low down.

We are growing business and with this comes an abundance of positives.

You will have the opportunity to be involved in an agency that has big growth plans and you’ll be able to make a real difference. Everyone involved in the business is highly-valued, and their suggestions, concerns, ideas carefully listened to. We want to grow as a team and you’ll become one of the 'originals' who’ll have a huge input into how that happens and what shape it takes.

This role brings great opportunity for career progression and a chance to build your own team for which you’ll be responsible.
