We’re seeking an experienced Front End Web Developer to join our tight-knit team, helping us produce high quality, conversion and UX optimised websites for our varied range of interesting clients – mainly D2C brands on Shopify.
You’ll be part of our cross-functional agency team that includes designers, copywriters and data analysts, and will be responsible for modern, best practice front end development.
While we don’t expect you to be a fully-fledged designer, you must be up to speed with UX principles and have a keen eye for good design and be capable of delivering quality websites end-to-end.
