Senior Web Developer

£30-£40k, dependant on experience

About the role

Kayo are seeking an enthusiastic and talented "full stack" web developer to join our dev team.  As part of our collaborative team you will be responsible for programming and testing functionality across a variety of projects, taking ownership of individual elements along the way.  As a full stack developer you'll be just as comfortable coding up a pixel perfect and cross browser compatible Bootstrap template from either Sketch or Photoshop designs as you are building a complete website from scratch.

For the day to day stuff, we generally build our websites on our own Rocket platform which is mixture of PHP, NodeJS and React so the majority of your tasks will be development assignments for bespoke functionality and enhancements to the platform.  We also offer Wordpress so knowledge of building custom extensions is important.

Aside from bespoke projects, as a Shopify partner we are looking for a developer to support our ambitions for growth in off the shelf ecommerce, the successful candidate will be required to build custom Shopify apps from time to time and occasionally Magento extensions or enhancements to WooCommerce.

Job requirements

  • Bootstrap 3
  • PHP
  • Javascript frameworks (jQuery/React/NodeJS)
  • GIT version control
  • CSS compilers (LESS/SASS)
  • Package Managers (NPM/Composer)

Advantageous knowledge

  • Shopify app development
  • Magento app development
  • Bespoke CMS development
  • Jira
  • Bitbucket
  • Docker
  • DeployHQ
  • Linux server administration
  • API integrations

About you

You will be self-motivated and passionate about your work with an underlying desire to deliver your very best day in day out. Ideally, you will have developed a variety of projects combining various technologies at a commercial level OR educated to at least degree level in an appropriate discipline (Computer Science/Web Computing etc).

You will be logical thinking and capable of taking a development concept from start to finish ensuring accuracy and high standards of coding throughout. You must be commercially minded in your approach to development, focussing on providing top level digital solutions within the time constraints of pre-defined budgets.

You should love meeting interface and development challenges daily with enthusiasm while also researching and proposing new technologies in their field and interacting with their peers.

You will approach each interface and development challenge with enthusiasm while interacting collaboratively with your peers.
