Midweight Web Developer

Permanent and full-time

Bristol

Up to £35k (Depending on experience)

Are you a talented Midweight Web Developer looking to join a dynamic and growing development team? Does your love of all things digital go beyond the code and get under the skin of the user? Do you obsess about clean, performant code? If yes, you may be interested in what we’ve got to offer.

Named the “Best Drupal House in Europe” by Panasonic’s Marketing Director, we’ve been providing multi-site solutions for over 7 years. Our continued growth means we need talented web developers to join our dedicated team of developers, testers, digital designers and content editors. You’ll be working with Panasonic, and other clients in Europe, the middle east, the US and UK to create industry-leading web applications.

Essential Technical requirements:

  • Computer Science degree or equivalent experience or training.
  • Solid industry PHP experience (2+ years).
  • Strong knowledge of MySQL.
  • Standards-compliant HTML and CSS.
  • Good knowledge of JavaScript and core frameworks (jQuery).
  • Git Version Control.

Desirable knowledge and skills:

  • Drupal, especially Headless Drupal.
  • Symfony and MVC methodologies.
  • Knowledge of jsonapi.org spec.
  • 3rd party APIs.
  • Responsive site building.
  • Linux and Apache configuration.
  • Performance optimisation (e.g. Memcache).
  • Docker and Ansible.
  • Elasticsearch.
  • Sass and other front-end pre-processor tools such as Gulp or Grunt.
  • Issue-tracking software, such as Redmine.

Job role:

You’ll work in the Digital team alongside the Project and Client Services teams, reporting directly to the Head of Development, to ensure the smooth delivery and outstanding performance of sites on a global scale.A typical day will be filled with lots of PHP and Drupal, and you’ll be developing web-based and standalone applications for exciting and varied projects that range from several days to several months. Much of what we do is leaning more towards software engineering as we look to build API-first applications.

We’re an enthusiastic bunch, always striving to improve our collective skills and willing to try new things (when it comes to digital at least!). So, if you’re keen on teamwork and continual development (excuse the pun) you’ll fit right in.

It’s often fast-paced with super-tight deadlines, but you’ll have the chance to work with some of the latest technologies, including Docker, Ansible, Elasticsearch, Angular JS and Headless Drupal. Although not vital, any experience with these will be a massive bonus.

Must-be:

  • Eagle-eyed when it comes to detail, with a love of clean, secure, well-documented code.
  • Able to debug and investigate problems efficiently.
  • Knowledgeable of the importance of performance optimisation.
  • Rather brilliant at personal time management in order to deliver projects to mutually agreed deadlines.
  • Able to provide accurate time estimates for allocated work.
  • Flexible in your approach, and able to cope with multiple projects at any one time.
  • An excellent communicator.
  • A team player who is comfortable working alone when required.
  • Highly professional.
  • Punctual and reliable.

This role is offered with a competitive salary, 23 days holiday plus bank holidays,flexible working (including core hours, flexible and extended lunch breaks, late starts for business travellers and remote working), training and development opportunities, including industry-relevant conference attendance. Healthcare cash plan, private medical insurance, cycle to work scheme with secure bike racks and retail and gym discounts to name but a few.
