Job description

We’re on the lookout for a Mid-Weight Front-End Developer to join our team. We’re an integrated agency that specialises in branding and a lot of the new brands and rebrands require web design/development. Brands not afraid to try something new, to go against the grain and break the mould in their respective industries. There’s no long drawn out projects or template driven websites.

A standard day would likely involve building bespoke WordPress themes for one of our clients. This can involve everything from building the back end of WordPress’s admin section using Advanced Custom Fields to the HTML, CSS and JavaScript on the front end. Don’t be put off by the thought of any complex integrations or functionality as that will be handled by our back end team.

While not all projects will be WordPress based we do work on a “why reinvent the wheel” approach and use what is appropriate for each individual project be it WordPress, Laravel or Shopify. Though this does mean most websites would be built with WordPress to save time for the fun work of making a really nice front end.

The main technologies and methodologies you’ll be using day to day are GIT, HTML5, BEM, CSS3, SCSS, GULP, JavaScript along with Some PHP. With jQuery being used for older legacy projects.

This is a fantastic opportunity to join a highly talented and passionate team, working on exciting projects where you will get a real sense of involvement from the very moment you start.

We are located in a recently refurbished mill in Ancoats Village in a brand new studio. A short walk to Piccadilly train station or the Northern Quarter with cheap daily parking for those that drive. The interior space is huge including living trees, screening room, large open kitchen area, breakout comfy zones, private sound booths, pool table, roof space with Wifi, free beer or soft drinks and coffee machines etc. There are secure bike storage areas and showers. The surrounding area is becoming one of the most desirable areas in Manchester. Once seen as the rundown area of the city it is now becoming the Shoreditch of Manchester. We are located in the main square which already has craft brewery pub, the famous Rudy’s Pizza, sports bar and restaurant. By summer 2018 there will be an additional 30 units containing restaurants, bars and shops. It is a truly exciting time to be in this area

Please note that this is a midweight developer role and as a result, we need to see some commercial projects that you have built.
