Full Stack Web Developer


This is an excellent role which will support the strong and experienced design team at JFD. Ideally you will be at least a mid-level web developer (full stack), with PHP and CSS skills looking to expand your skillset. Our current pipeline has a mixture of existing Laravel projects and new Universal Javascript apps which you will be working on. Whilst Laravel is a requirement, we can be flexible with Javascript if you have a passion to learn.

You will be responsible for taking wireframed/designed visuals and creating not just standard websites but also web apps using APIs. 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.

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. 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.
