Following the success of our previous recruitment exercise, Hambly Freeman are looking for a design-aware web developer to join our growing team.
The work undertaken within this role is varied and exciting. We regularly collaborate on projects with industry-renowned, London-based design and branding agencies, such as Socio Design, Captive Minds and recently Wolff Olins. Alongside these projects, the successful applicant will enjoy working with clients located both nearby and afar, with projects currently being undertaken for businesses based in Italy, UAE and the United States.
The candidate should have experience building responsive websites from supplied design files, using semantic HTML5, jQuery, SASS/CSS and PHP. Experience extracting assets and generating SVGs with Adobe Creative Suite is also required. A working knowledge of WordPress is desired, but not essential – a key aspect of the role is bespoke WordPress theme development, based on supplied artwork, produced in Adobe Photoshop or Illustrator.
The creative director or one of the many design agencies Hambly Freeman collaborates with on a regular basis will provide desktop, tablet and mobile artwork. In response, pixel-perfect templates are to be developed, with clean, concise code, that adheres to the latest web standards.
This role will require acute attention to detail and the ability to integrate the latest front-end technologies into your development tasks on a regular basis. Our latest projects have required use of Greensock, ScrollMagic and Ajax for elegant page transitions and efficient content delivery. Whilst experience with these technologies is not required, a desire to learn and push the boundaries of your development skills is crucial.
The successful candidate will have the ability to manage their own projects and workload, be comfortable with communicating directly with clients and keen to integrate themselves into a small but experienced team, based in our Exeter studio. A three month probationary period will lead to permanent employment, if successful.
