We're looking for a graduate with an interest in backend web development, particularly PHP and Drupal. We're not looking for experts, and while any commercial or personal web experience is a bonus, we're mainly looking for someone enthusiastic about web development. You'll be supported by our experienced backend team and quickly learn the skills and processes for building sites in a fast-paced agency environment. You'll get working on client sites quickly and be guided by lead developers on each project, ultimately working towards leading projects yourself.


We're looking for some knowledge of PHP, and as a bonus some awareness of CMSes like Drupal, JavaScript, web application security, server configuration and git.


Here's a taste of what we do day-to-day:


Build Drupal 8 websites and write bespoke modules to integrate with external services and bend Drupal to our will. As much as possible using Composer, Configuration Management and other ways to smooth development

Maintain our Drupal 7 sites

Write JavaScript with jQuery and other libraries

Work with the frontend team to integrate and support their work with tools and knowledge we can pass on.

Work with producers to plan and estimate

Participate in stand-ups, sprint planning, client show-and-tells

Deploy sites and ensure they run smoothly. We're interested in PaaS and using modern hosting to improve our workflow.

Security reviews

Create Symfony applications

Share knowledge and contribute ideas about how we can improve the way we work. We're strongest when we communicate and learn from each other.
