**The role ** You will be part of a team responsible for a number of Umbraco websites, including maintenance & support, bug fixing and adding new features. You will also be involved, with the rest of the development team, in the planning and development of new sites, redesigns and overhauls of existing sites.
You will be working remotely as part of a globally distributed team. This takes a high level of motivation and the ability to self manage. You will also be communicating with clients directly. This requires excellent written and verbal English communication skills and the ability to communicate professionally with both technical and non-technical people.
On top of all that every member of our team is encouraged to spend a portion of their on the job time working on projects that have societal value. This might include open source development, charity projects or training and assisting other organisations. You need to be as excited about that prospect as the rest of the team!
What’s in it for you?
You will bring your experience, ideas and energy to the role. There is huge opportunity to further develop not just your technical skills but also your understanding of web development as a whole.
On top of that, a vital part of our purpose is working on projects and with organisations that have real societal impact. This includes working with social enterprises and charities on both commercial and pro-bono projects. You need to be as excited about that prospect as the rest of the team!
Location & Hours
You can work from anywhere – well almost – anywhere within 2 hours of the UK timezone. We are more interested in results than micro-managing which means there is a great deal of flexibility in your exact working hours.
We really mean this, it’s not just a throw-away phrase nor does it mean taking less holidays. The minimum is 28 days annually and, so long as the work gets done, we encourage as much other time away as possible. Permanent staff must take at least one continuous 2 week break per year.
This is a Junior or Mid level role. Competitive salary, depending on experience.
We are an eclectic group and want to work with people who bring enthusiasm and energy, have values they care about and are able to be both professional and fun. If that describes you, then please get in touch!
