About Us

We work with ambitious organisations who want to take a major step forward using technology. It can be through consultancy, user journey improvements, digital platforms builds, or whatever else is the right solution to their challenge.

We’re gearing up for our busiest year ever with new projects and we need to grow our team to keep with a mix of existing client projects and new business wins.

About the role

We’re primarily a .NET house, and we tend to favour Umbraco as our CMS. We have experience in both Umbraco 7 and Umbraco 8, and we are currently in the process of migrating our largest and most complex project to Umbraco 8. The team need someone with extensive experience of Umbraco to act a reference point and help up standardise our development approach, taking into account best practices and our own internal standards.

You will report to the Technical Practice Lead and be responsible for:

  • Supporting during client discovery sessions
  • Helping estimate work from non-technical requirements
  • Delivering high-quality work in line with the agreed estimates
  • Implement accessible, flexible and technically sound CSS layouts from designs and style guides
  • Build robust, user-friendly back office experiences using Umbraco 8
  • Integrate with necessary third-party APIs
  • Identify and implement/configure useful technologies, building blocks, or other off-the-shelf components to increase the pace of development
  • Helping us continually improve our development practices
  • Contributing to architectural discussions
  • Working as a technical lead alongside a project manager on projects which are assigned to you

About you

We are looking to recruit people who are interesting in improving themselves and the team they work in. Formal academic qualifications are not essential for this role – if you have the right mindset and solid Umbraco experience this could be the role for you.

This means you:

  • Have a strong preference for simple, clean code that does exactly what it should
  • Are open-minded, always happy to learn about a new framework, technology, or approach
  • Aren’t a lone wolf coder, but one who really enjoys being part of a team of like-minded experts and learning from them
  • Understand that a task is only done after it’s passed testing and has been deployed for the client to use
  • Appreciate the value of reusable components and off-the-shelf packages and frameworks to help get a project off the ground
  • Want to make a difference to your own personal development, to our clients and to our business
  • Have experience building Umbraco 8 websites in an agency environment
  • Be able to communicate well with technical and non-technical audiences including client stakeholders

Ideally, you will also:

  • Have experience of building deployment pipelines in Azure
  • Have knowledge of AWS
  • Have experience of working on multiple projects, sometimes having to switch between them to cope with business needs
  • Be familiar with a with a wide variety of web and cloud technology stacks
