You’ll work closely with the frontend team on a variety of different projects, seeing the whole process through from design, development and maintenance of websites and APIs, as well as getting involved with server setup and management.

With a passion for development and modern trends, you will be keen to share your knowledge with the rest of the team with the shared goal of delivering the very best client experience.

  • Confident translating business and technical requirements to feasible technical solutions

  • Email and server maintenance experience

  • Strong communication skills - both written and oral

  • Team player who is willing to learn and share knowledge with others

  • Ability to work independently, working to deadlines and juggling incoming support related calls and emails from clients

  • Excellent analytical skills and problem-solving ability

  • Experience using REST based services and OOP methodologies for e-commerce systems would be highly desirable.

Essential skills for the role:

  • HTML, CSS, SASS

  • JSON, XML

  • Linux, Apache, SSH

It’s a great place to work and the company are offering full remote working so you don’t need to be based in Exeter. You will need to be able to travel to their offices once every few months for team meetings though.
