PHP/MySQL Developer needed to join the Better team

On the back of winning some exciting digital projects, the Better team is growing again. We are looking for a talented and exciting PHP/MySQL web developer to join us. You can have previous agency experience or be fresh out of Uni, as long as you meet the grade.

The web developer role requires demonstration technical ability but more importantly the passion required to forge a career in digital media that by its very nature requires continuous learning. You should have a love for all things web. You will see web projects as being not only design and functionality, but also understand the marketing and communication requirements for the project (including SEO). We are looking for a motivated self-learner, who finds code and problem solving interesting.

Software knowledge and skills required:
Experience developing with PHP & MySQL
A good working knowledge of CSS, JavaScript, and XHTML, Search Engine Optimisation and Social Media Platforms
Awareness of Accessibility particularly W3C and WAI 
Web 2.0

Advantageous:
Experience in a modern version control system (SVN, Git, Hg etc)
Knowledge of Unit Testing and Continuous Integration techniques
Experience in Linux system administration

Salary/Package: Negotiable based on experience.

You must be able to join the team to support both existing projects (additional work, problem solving) but also lead on new projects using your technical understanding to help with scoping out technical website specifications. You need to be able to work comfortably on your own while maintaining close communication with the rest of the team. Having a strong attention to detail is critical.

You should have a good, working knowledge of current web standards such as W3C and WAI and be able to build sites comfortably in line with these.  An advanced understanding of Search Engine Optimisation issues and their influence on developing web functionality is important.

You must be self motivated to succeed, and of course practice clean coding techniques along with proper relevant documentation. You will be involved in face-to-face client meetings to support our clients, and good communication skills are important to us.

NO AGENCIES PLEASE.

office: Springboard Centre, Ellerbeck Way, Stokesley Business Park, Stokesley, North Yorkshire, TS9 5JZ
