Lead PHP Developer

You should be an enthusiastic lead developer who displays a strong sense of ownership and pride in your work. You must be a confident and capable team leader, able to grow a small and agile development team and ensure strong performance.

You must be comfortable discussing your ideas to both technical peers and non-technical users. If you have the majority of your experience gained from working in a software house or technology business, you would be a more natural fit to this organisation.

  • Specific experience (eg Modernizr, jQuery Mobile) preferred
  • CSS and HTML development experience required
  • Strong front-end skills, JavaScript and JavaScript framework development experience required, preferably with jQuery and Ember.js

What can you expect in return?

  • Competitive salary and package with fast progression for the right person
  • Company benefits and perks including private medical
  • Creative, collaborative and interactive working environment
