Full Stack Developer

About the role

We are looking for a full stack web developer with 2 or more years of experience creating successful dynamic websites to join our team and create great responsive experiences for both new and existing clients.

You will primarily take designs created in Photoshop, Affinity, Sketch etc. and turn them into high quality, content managed WordPress websites. We’re looking for developers with a real eye for detail who can demonstrate some examples of work they are proud of.

We also create more bespoke web applications on the Laravel framework. Experience of Laravel or a similar MVC framework is a bonus but even without such knowledge, you would ideally have the desire to expand your PHP development knowledge and begin working with Laravel over time. We will provide a Laracasts account and full support as you get started along with real world projects to sink your teeth into.
