Kind are a strategic digital agency that helps socially-minded businesses to get the most out of their digital presence, and hopefully make the world a little better at the same time.
Due to the rate at which we’re growing, we're on the look out for a senior developer to help us build beautiful websites in Craft CMS and web applications with PHP & VueJS.
You’ll be working on a variety of digital projects for our growing, socially-responsible client base, as well as on internal projects. That means:
This is a more varied role than we can describe in full here, see the job description for a more complete picture if this sounds like your kind of thing.
Right now most of our projects are built using some combination of:
However we’re always open to trying new and interesting technologies.
What we offer
Here’s what we offer in return for your time and attention:
What we’re looking for
More than a portfolio or a checklist of skills, we’re looking for someone intelligent who takes pride in their work and is always keen to improve it.
So if you don’t quite match the description below but think we could be a good fit for each other, get in touch anyway. We’re of the opinion that it’s far easier to learn skills on the job than it is the right attitude to work.
If you’re a PHP dev, experience with Craft, especially plugin development, is a massive plus (though it’s not a requirement). Alternatively you’ll have a high level of familiarity with one or more modern frameworks (e.g. Laravel, Yii2 or Symfony / Express, Sails, or Hapi on the server side, or Vue / React / Angular in browser-land). We currently use Vue for our SPA-type needs.
You’ll also be highly proficient with skills and tools that make up modern web development: git; command line build tools; CI; unit testing; etc. We’re user-centred in our approach, so it’s important that you care and understand enough about UX to help us deliver experiences to the standard our clients have come to expect.
We’re a small team, so we’re also looking for someone who is willing and able to muck in with stuff like QA and UI dev when required.
This position might not be for you if you:
To apply, send a CV + GitHub profile to firstname.lastname@example.org, along with a brief cover note explaining why you are interested in the role and how your skills and experience, align with the job description. Please also include a link to a recent software project (professional or personal) that you’re proud of, and tell us why.
If we think you might be a good candidate to join us we’ll arrange an informal interview so that we can find out more about each other. This can be either face-to-face (if you’re near by) or phone / Skype.
Depending on the outcome of the first interview, we may invite you to do a technical test. This can be completed off-site. Candidates who advance past this stage will then be invited to meet us at out offices for an in-person interview and to meet the full Kind team.
