We're looking for an experienced WordPress web developer to join our team and be part of our exciting journey. If you want to be part of a caring, hard working, fun loving team where you'll make a big impact and see your ideas come to fruition, we'd love to hear from you.

About You

You. Love. To. Code. After a hard day's coding at work, you like to kick back and relax with some light recreational coding. You're always questioning how and why you do things in search of better ways of working. You hate repeating yourself. You're always questioning how and why you do things in search of better ways of working. That just bugged you (go put it in a function). You love getting your head down, into the zone and obliterating your to-do list. You love working within a team, bouncing ideas around and figuring out problems. You're borderline-obsessed with learning - you get a buzz from it - and you love putting your newfound knowledge into practice on the route to mastery.

You hate to faff around - let's jump in and get on with it. You get excited by new difficult challenges; the more difficult, the better. You approach your work, and your life with a sense of fun and adventure; if you're not having fun, then what's the point?

About Us

We believe we can make life better for our communities by solving real problems with design and technology.
