Who are we?

We’re a small, agile digital agency based in Glasgow and Manchester. We have no desire to be the biggest agency in the world, but rather do great work for great clients around the world. Our roots date back to 1997 but we’re thoroughly forward thinking. And, we require team members who love a challenge, want to take ownership of projects and be part of a close-knit, committed team.

What’s the role

Due to a series of exciting client wins, we are looking to expand our current development team to include an additional mid-level or senior developer. The successful candidate will enjoy working within a fast-paced agency environment and relish the challenges and opportunities afforded to them through the variety of projects that we build and maintain.

The successful candidate will have experience building custom object-oriented PHP applications and be comfortable working with open source frameworks (e.g. Laravel) and various CMS.

This role will require true craftsmanship extending over and above CMS templating and framework boilerplates. The candidate should be able to demonstrate their competence in delivering projects based on loosely coupled object-oriented code and their ability to architect applications for maintainability and scalability. While support will be available, the successful candidate will be confident to lead a project without supervision and strive to achieve a high-quality output through efficiency and collaboration.

As well as being technically experienced, the successful candidate will be able to assist the digital producers by representing After Digital in client meetings and delivering their technical knowledge in an accessible format.

Whilst we have offices in both Manchester and Glasgow, this role is also open to remote workers across the UK.
