You'll be able to develop systems that make sense to users in the real world and communicate technical details in a way that a non-technical person can understand. You'll be commercially-minded and understand the need for efficient development, rather than a coder who likes to overcomplicate things just because they can. The successful candidate will be someone who understands the needs of working as part of a team (e.g. well-commented code with updates committed regularly)!

In-house training and assistance will be provided to develop the right candidate. 

Required skills and experience

  • At least 1 years' commercial web development experience, with some case studies or examples of work.
  • Experienced with OOP principles and modern PHP frameworks.
  • Proficiency with JavaScript and jQuery.
  • Good SQL skills and familiarity with MySQL/Maria.
  • Excellent HTML and CSS skills.
  • Experience in developing responsive websites.
  • Good communication and presentation skills.
  • Excellent English language and maths skills.
  • Version control with SVN and Git.
  • A fast learner, with attention to detail.

Desirable skills & experience

  • ZCE accredited for PHP5.
  • Experience with responsive CSS frameworks (e.g. Bootstrap).
  • Experience with Laravel.
  • A proficiency at the Linux command line.
  • A good understanding of DNS.
  • Knowledge of LAMP server management.

Working Environment

A calm and friendly office environment in a converted barn in beautiful rural Somerset. Despite the rural setting, we are fully air-conditioned with fibre Internet access. Excellent spec equipment, with your choice of Mac or PC. Fantastic career prospects with a well-reputed and growing web development studio.
