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.
Got experience with Shopify? That'll be a plus, but if not then we'll help you get up to speed on the platform.
Our agency is a small but mighty web design and conversion optimisation studio. Rather than mindlessly churning out code, we work on a consultative, proactive basis, which our clients really value. We’ve been careful to pick interesting clients who appreciate the quality of our work, and our friendly, professional insights.
You'll work closely with our experienced founder, Matthew. A web developer himself, he'll be speaking your language and will help to build your skills in a positive and supportive way, while delivering value for our clients.
You'll be working mainly with our retained consultancy clients, where we help guide what should be done on their websites to maximise engagement and online sales. These range from website tweaks to full refreshes and site builds.
Our clients are mainly D2C brands who sell their own unique and interesting product lines online with Shopify. Three of which have featured on Dragon's Den and another led by a well-known entrepreneur and TV personality.
Plastic-free biodegradable chewing gum, 100% baked cheese super tasty snacks, award-winning non-alcoholic spirits, amazing skin healing creams, eyewear brands - just a sample from our client list.
With several clients having been featured on Dragon's Den, another led by a well-known TV personality and others seeing over 1000% growth year on year, there's plenty of interesting work to be sinking your teeth into.
