Web Developer

Role

This is an excellent role which will support the strong and experienced design team at JFD. Ideally you will be a mid-level web developer, with PHP and CSS skills (with the balance towards the frontend).

You will be responsible for taking web ready layouts (full html/css templates) and deploying to a CMS, or building websites from the ground up. You will have a good eye for design, attention to detail and pride in your work. Working as part of the digital team, you will be comfortable building sites using PHP/CSS and be able to find your way round a content management system. Some of our sites are built in WordPress, which means you’ll need to know a plugin from a page, but that doesn’t mean you will be restricted to this platform – far from it.

We are a forward looking team with strong developers who are passionate about new technology. If you think our next project would benefit from something you’ve seen on Slack then we’ll happily listen.

You will be able to plan your time appropriately given a list of tasks (Trello) or a project, and be able to keep track of project progress versus what has been quoted. You’ll also be able to show off some of your past work, and explain what you did, and why you did it that way.
