As with most web development roles there will be some crossover into backend technologies. For example, if a website is built in WordPress, having experience in PHP is advantageous.

You’ll work collaboratively in an experienced, highly capable team of developers who all push each other to be the best at what they do. You’re passionate about digital technologies, as well as wanting to to continuously strive to improve your craft and push the boundaries of technology.

We’ll make sure you’re kept up-to-date with the latest technologies and allow you the flexibility to explore and develop your skills in wider areas of development through training, mentoring, pair programming, and code reviews.
