Middleweight Full-stack Developer

Due to consistent levels of sweet new projects, we want to bring another developer into our team. We want someone to help create exceptional digital experiences within our talented team, develop their skill set and keep Dark Blue at the forefront of the industry.

Who we’re looking for

A driven web developer with proven experience building complex websites and web applications. You’ll be someone who can perfectly translate a design to the front-end using modern web standards. You’ll be able to build web applications and have an understanding of database management. You’ll also be comfortable working with APIs. A lot of the projects we take on involve integrations with multiple 3rd parties so the ability to read, understand and utilise an API is key. Finally, you’ll be eager to advance your skill set, curious about new web technologies and eager to jump on them if a project could benefit from it.

We don’t have a fixed tech stack, but someone comfortable with Laravel, Vue, React and Node would be preferred as there’d be some requirement of previous project maintenance.

What you’ll be working on

Becoming a key member of the development team, you’ll have ownership of the entire build cycle of your projects, but you’ll be involved much earlier, being a sounding board as the project goes through research and design.

The types of projects we take on are brochure sites, e-commerce sites, web applications, and digital marketing campaigns. We could be involved with a highly visual, heavily animated campaign site one day, and a complex web application the next. Even as a ‘full-stack’ developer, we understand you’ll be stronger in certain areas of web development and we won’t push you into projects you’re not comfortable with - we’d only take on projects that suit the skill set of of developers anyway.

This is a full time, permanent position and is an awesome opportunity to create mind-blowing digital experiences with a talented and friendly bunch of people.

What you'll be joining

We’re a small digital agency based out of a cosy studio in Shoreditch, London. We’ve been slowly growing over the past 3 years and our team is currently made up of 2 developers, 1 designer and 1 project/operations manager (you’ll be doubling the design team!) We specialise in the design and build of websites, mobile apps and marketing campaigns. We have awesome clients. From big companies like Virgin, Mindshare and Deliveroo to exciting start-ups like Tide, Plenish and Central Working.

A healthy work/life balance is very important to us. We’ve crafted the agency around the lives we want to live. We have flexible working hours and budgets for employee health and wellbeing. Travel is encouraged. Everyone gets plenty of holiday allowance and we take team trips away together as often as possible.

If you feel like you fit the bill above, please send an intro letter and your portfolio to hello@wearedarkblue.com. We look forward to hearing from you.
