Overview

We are seeking a full-stack web developer with a solid background in PHP, MySQL, JavaScript and CSS to join our very busy and growing digital agency.

Working remotely, you will be expected to be self-motivated and operate as part of a team, so you will need an understanding of version control and be able to manage your own development environment. You will also be expected to meet face-to-face (at least virtually) with clients regularly to discuss ongoing projects and new requirements, so good verbal and written communication skills are essential.
