Who we are looking for
We’re seeking an experienced contract / freelance Front End Web Developer to join our tight-knit agency team, and help us produce high quality, conversion and UX optimised websites for our varied range of interesting clients.
You’ll be part of our remote cross-functional agency team that includes designers, copywriters and data analysts, and will be responsible for modern, best practice front end development.
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 clients who appreciate the quality of our work, and our friendly, professional insights.
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, as there won't always be final designs provided when you're working on tweaks to existing sites.
You'll be responsible for...
Building complete website front ends based on both your UX and design ability and in collaboration with visual designs/wireframes
Making improvements to existing sites, based on guideline briefs and using your own design ability to implement an attractive and usable solution
Developing well-functioning websites, with a focus on page speed optimisation and browser/device compatibility
Setting up CMS packages including intuitive and flexible content model design
Troubleshooting, debug and upgrade/maintain your code
Launching websites and ongoing website maintenance
Producing technical documentation and accurate effort estimates for prospective projects
Adding creative flair to front end templates, over and above any static designs that may be available
You must have...
Proven recent experience as a Front End Web Developer delivering the responsibilities as outlined
CMS and cloud platform experience, Craft CMS and ideally Shopify
Experience with modern front-end frameworks such as Tailwind, jQuery, SCSS
A solid grasp of build tools and package managers (Laravel Mix, Webpack, Node, Composer)
Comfortable working with and setting up Git-based push-to-deploy systems (we use DeployHQ with Server Pilot managed DigitalOcean droplets)
Ability to faithfully extract designs from design tools such as Sketch and Figma
UX skills and a good eye for design
Organisational skills and time management to meet deadlines and raise problems at the right time
A setup that enables you to work well remotely
References we can take up
Please apply using the link below, along with a description of your work on your last three project descriptions, plus a covering note detailing why you feel you'd be a good fit for this position.
It also wouldn't hurt to tell us why you like Craft CMS compared to some other, let's say, "popular" options.
At this stage we are not looking for recruitment agents or outsourcing firms, sorry if that is you.
