We’re also currently working on a few internal projects which you’ll have the opportunity to work on. We’re really excited about the potential of these and would look for heavy input from our new team member.

A bit about us…

We launched a few years ago with a craving to work on our passions: to develop powerful brands and create unique websites for our awesome clients. Since launching we’ve taken a slight transition to focus on building awesome web applications and solving interesting UI challenges with start-ups. We can literally say that we build dreams. Which is pretty cool.

While we’re currently at three staff, Owen (Web Guy/Co-Founder), Kieran (Design Guy/Co-Founder) and Catrin (Design Gal), we also have two part-time Client Liaison Managers: our dogs, Rocket and Gus. So you ideally need to get on with canines.

Our studio is at Welsh ICE in Caerphilly (10-minute walk from the station or a pop off the A470), where we’re surrounded by loads of cool businesses and brilliant people. We’re looking forward to growing our team and getting more awesome people on board who share our ethos and attitude towards work.

Your Application

We’re interested in who you are, what you can do, and where you want to be. We understand you won’t be with Big Lemon for your whole career, so we need to know that your vision of progression aligns with ours so we can help you take steps to achieving your dreams.

If shortlisted, we’ll invite you to an informal one-to-one interview at our studio where we can grab a coffee.

Please send over your CV along with a short introduction about who you are and any info you feel is relevant (any past work you’ve been involved with, previous projects you’ve built, plugins you’ve helped develop or things you’ve launched. A GitHub account could be perfect.) to jobs@biglemoncreative.co.uk

We can’t wait to hear from you.
