We're looking for a Better Website Developer

The Better team is growing and we are looking for a web developer to join us.

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 and an understanding, if not a working knowledge of good web site construction. 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). You should find code and problem solving interesting and have a genuine interest in perusing a career within a vibrant commercial studio and a Better environment where deadlines change daily.

Software and skills:
→ Expert knowledge of building sites in CSS/XHTML,
→ Expert knowledge of PHP/MySQL., Javascript and AJAX as well as understanding Javascript Frameworks such as Prototype or jquery.

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 needs 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 must be self motivated to succeed, and of course practice clean coding techniques along with proper relevant documentation.

You should have excellent 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 will be involved in face-to-face client meetings to support our clients, and good communication skills are important to us.

Awareness:
Content Management System Models
Hosting and Email Set Up and server support
Search Engine Optimisation
Aware of Accessibility particularly W3C and WAI 
Web 2.0
Design standards and technology
