webdna is an award-winning digital development, design and marketing agency with deep expertise in creating websites and web apps. We are one of the leading Craft CMS agencies in the world. We are one of only 14 agencies in the world that are both Craft and Craft Commerce Verified and the only agency in the UK with both accreditations. We were recently named European Craft CMS Agency of the Year, UK Craft CMS Agency of the Year and one of the top 20 agencies to work for in the UK in the prestigious Campaign Best Places to Work 2023 awards.
You will be joining a team of four developers led by our Technical Director, Sam Birch. You will work alongside Sam, one Senior Developer (Charlie), one Developer (Mike) one Junior Developer (Georgia), our Senior Project Manager (Helen) and our design and marketing teams. To start with, you will work in partnership with one of the other developers on the team until you are familiar with our internal processes, the standards that we expect and the way we communicate. As you have familiarised yourself with how we work, you will be given the autonomy to lead your own projects with support available from the rest of the team if needed.
We view the Developer role as having three levels, with the lowest level being a small step above a very strong Junior Developer and the highest level just a small step below the lowest level of a Senior Developer. This role is pitched right in the middle of those three levels, so for the right person there will be an opportunity to increase their salary as they move through the different levels, then move up to Senior Developer.
We are looking for the right type of person with a great attitude to learning and developing their own skills. Someone who does not walk past a problem; they identify what it is and solve it or help someone else to find the right solution.
You should have experience in working closely with designers to build interfaces from designs that match the designer’s vision but be willing to provide feedback where you think there are opportunities for improvement. You will be expected to QA your own work before it moves within the team for testing and then to our client for user acceptance testing.
The ideal candidate will be passionate about digital experiences, have a strong work ethic, and the sort of eye for detail that will enable them to spot an out-of-place ‘;’ or front-end design that is not pixel-perfect.
You should also have a working knowledge of technical SEO, and will work closely with our SEO and marketing team to ensure that you grow your skills and expertise. You will also implement Google Analytics and other tracking tools and test these with the marketing team.
Qualifications and Experience
The most important thing that we are looking for is the right person with the right attitude, but the following qualifications and experience are a good guide for the level of individual we are looking for:
What we offer
This is a chance to fast-track your career as a Craft CMS developer by working alongside some of the very best in the world. As you would expect from one of the top agencies to work for the UK, the wrap-around package is pretty good, too!

We also operate a hybrid working environment. You may work in the office, at home, in a coffee shop, or anywhere you like; the choice is yours. You decide where you work best, and we will support you to enable you to make it work. You will have a training budget assigned to you, and we would expect you to join the team at Dot All each year.
We have monthly staff events with remote workers heading to Nottingham for some time with the rest of the team, fun activities and a night out. We also provide you with all of the equipment you will need for your office and home set-up. Drinks, snacks and fruit are also available in the office whenever you want them.
Salary - £25,000 to £35,000 per year, based on experience.
