Would you be interested in working for an established, multi award winning Digital Marketing Agency who work with huge household names in the insurance, travel and technology sectors?

My clients are a team of creative, passionate and knowledgeable individuals from all over the World, and this diversity is what drives their award-winning campaigns; it enables them to grow and support their client's business on an international scale.

My client is looking for a talented and pioneering developer who likes to build and break things, test and learn. The role requires strong technical skills, a passion for learning, and an ability to solve problems.

Over the years the agency has built out a series of tools to make what we do either possible – or just more efficient. This year they plan to build a dedicated in-house resource to regularly build internal tools, launch many of their existing tools to the public and work on one big internal project that’ll become a commercial tool.

Benefitting from their access to vast swathes of third-party data, they will be busting industry myths, solving problems that have previously been seen as unsolvable (don’t worry – they already have proof-of-concept) and creating some pretty cool proof-of-concepts along the way.

Whilst you’ll have access to the insight and experience of other developers and designers, this role will sit separately as the foundational member of a new team and so, working closely with the Head of Innovation, will be able to shape how this department grows.

Day-to-Day Responsibilities

  • Developing and maintaining scripts, responsive web applications and one large Go based project.
  • Working with the Head of Innovation, building out the strategy and feature-set for the Go based project, working to bring it to market and then iterating.
  • Working alongside designers to implement internal and external feedback
  • Working alongside the Head of Innovation to test-and-learn on some of the harder problems we’ll be investigating.
  • Managing own workload to ensure meeting internal and external deadlines
  • Carrying out QA to investigate, diagnose and fix bugs
  • Writing and maintaining clear and comprehensive documentation to accompany your code
  • Working with other team members to collect requirements and write technical specifications and functional requirements documents
  • Refactoring legacy code and working alongside the development team on internal projects.

Required skills and experience

  • Front and backend web development experience including:

o At least one of the modern front-end frameworks (e.g. react, angular etc)

o MySQL, MongoDB or Firebase

  • Strong Go skills
  • Ability to adapt, working in the right language to solve the problem
  • Experience with Linux server administration, deployment and migration strategies
  • Experience in Python (Desirable) 

This role comes with a list of exceptional benefits including Annual bonus & Bupa Heatlhcare. 

If interested please apply at your earliest convenience.
