Job Description

We’re on the lookout for a new developer to join our team. Currently the majority of our team are working from home, but ultimately you’ll have the choice of working remotely or at our beautiful studio in Hayle, Cornwall.

What you’ll be doing:

  • Working with our in-house design team to transform creative designs into functional websites.
  • Helping to maintain existing sites to keep them fresh, while tackling our clients’ evolving business needs.

About you:

  • We’re looking for someone with a passion for web development.
  • You’re at your best when you have a problem to solve.
  • You’re keen to keep learning more and always strive to improve on the last piece of work.
  • Above all else, you have a strong eye for attention to detail; you sweat the small stuff and take pride in your work.

Must have:

  • Proven and demonstrable experience in a frontend role.
  • Strong HTML knowledge.
  • Great understanding of modern CSS features and methodologies.
  • Good knowledge of modern JavaScript (ES2015+).
  • Some experience with PHP.
  • Excellent problem solving skills.
  • Able communicate effectively.
  • Able to manage your own time and deadlines.

Nice-to-haves:

  • Familiarity with building frontends using Craft CMS.
  • Experience with custom Craft CMS plugin/module development.
  • Know your way around build tools such as Gulp and Webpack.
  • Experience baking accessibility into sites from the start.
  • Have some basic SQL and database skills.
  • Can set up and manage the odd server using tools such Forge and ServerPilot.

(Don’t worry if you don’t have any of these; you’ll learn them on the job.)

What you don’t need:

  • Experience with JavaScript frameworks such as Vue or React.
  • A formal education in web development, computer science or similar – none of us do.

Company Description

We are an independent brand design agency in Cornwall, working for clients throughout the UK. We add value by driving real change.

What we do

Nixon has over 25 years of expertise in creating positive change and transformation. We enable our clients to communicate more effectively, grow their market share, reach new audiences and increase their profile and profitability.

To do this, we create authentic brands, beautiful visual identities, crafted print, compelling content, and engaging digital solutions.

Other Application Details

 

If this sounds like you, please click APPLY now and send a CV and covering letter  along with expected salary. Please include the following:

  • Links to two websites you have recently built, or heavily contributed to. If there are things you would do differently next time, let us know – it shows you’re able to learn from past experiences.
  • If you have links to other code examples, such as your GitHub/Codepen profile, please share them, but this is not a requirement. We understand not everyone wants to have a public presence.

If you’re shortlisted…

If you’re shortlisted for the role we won’t ask you to carry out exercises on a whiteboard (physical or virtual) or explain algorithms. It wouldn’t help us and wouldn’t be an accurate reflection of you, or what you’ll be doing day to day.

Instead, we will  invite you for an informal chat, during which we’ll be able to get a sense of your past experience, interests, and strengths. We hope to select a candidate within 2 weeks of the deadline.
