Due to phenomenal growth, we are recruiting another experienced Web Developer to join the fastest growing department within the company. We're a big company with a family feel. By joining our web development team, you won't just be another body at a desk. Ideas and suggestions are valued. Decisions are made instantly. We want you to use your skills to build websites to join our innovative portfolio of ecommerce brands, all developed in-house.

The successful candidate will have a good eye for design, experience in querying databases (preferably Microsoft SQL), and experience of working in a friendly but busy, often demanding environment. You'll be working on our existing portfolio to keep the sites fresh and technologically current, adding in new features and improving existing ones. We're not going to stop growing, and you'll also be working on integrating new sites into our existing platform, often starting from scratch with your input respected and valued.

Essential Skills:

  • Excellent HTML, CSS, JavaScript/jQuery.
  • Experience of working in a busy web production environment.
  • Experience of content management systems.
  • Experience of secure coding techniques.
  • Microsoft SQL / MySQL experience.
  • Good communication skills.
