Our in-house team of developers, located in Gateshead, work on a variety of applications delivered for some of the world’s leading brands including Microsoft, HP, Samsung, Exxon Mobil, and more.

Having been acquired by billion-dollar Village Roadshow Group  in 2015, we’re continuing to expand, and need new developers to help keep up with the growing business.

The role:

We’re looking for a frontend developer to join our team. This is a fast-paced environment working on bespoke promotion campaigns developed for our clients. The websites you will work on will be used by hundreds of thousands of users each year for the largest tech companies in the world.

The frontend developer will focus on creating responsive websites which match design briefs, adhere to specific brand guidelines and have excellent UX.

The essentials you should have experience with include:

  • HTML/CSS frameworks (Bootstrap, Foundation)
  • CSS preprocessors (SASS, LESS)
  • Responsive design
  • JavaScript and modern JS frameworks
  • Git

Other desirable skills include:

  • Linux
  • Unit testing
  • Modern PHP frameworks

The environment:

Our development teams include experts in every aspect of software engineering, who you’ll be able to learn from and bounce ideas off.

We understand as a team that your learning is never finished, which is why we sponsor local developer meetups (PHP North East) and encourage everyone in the team to present new ideas and technology to the team during regular internal presentations.

We’re open to remote working too. Most of the technical team work in our Newcastle office, but we also have another office in London, and we have a few full-time remote developers.
