Whether you have been in the industry a while or you are looking for your first break, we are searching for a unique skillset that combines both a creative edge with a bulletproof technical ability when it comes to writing code. This will enable you to work closely alongside our design team in order to create compelling user experiences.

The role will see you involved in the entire frontend build of a project - meaning that you can really take pride in crafting the finished product. As a result, experience in building with any CMS such as Umbraco or Wordpress would be favourable, although our team is well positioned to upskill the right candidate.


The ideal candidate:

  • Immerse yourself in the digital industry – enthusiastic about good design and new tech
  • Good eye for detail – have a pixel perfect perception and take pride in your work
  • Robust technical ability and understanding of key programming concepts
  • Continually looking to improve yourself and the team around you


Essential skills:

  • Comprehensive knowledge of HTML/CSS
  • Solid experience with JS/jQuery/AJAX
  • Knowledge of responsive design
  • Experience with a grid system (eg. Twitter Bootstrap)
  • Keen eye for detail and a desire for quality
  • Understanding of web accessibility guidelines


These skills will make us want to meet you even more:

  • Expertise with a programming language (eg. C#/PHP)
  • Experience building with a CMS (eg. Umbraco/Wordpress)
  • Effective use of SASS and build tools (eg. GULP)
  • Understanding of BEM methodologies
  • Knowledge of a templating language (eg. Razor/Twig/Handlebars)
  • Experience with javascript frameworks (eg. React/Vue)
  • Robust use of GIT version control


As a member of the Spindogs team we would expect:

  • Team player - looking to make a positive difference to the office culture
  • Fast learner - you love a challenge don't need to be told the same thing twice
  • Strong work ethic - you go the extra mile to find new ways to constantly improve your output


In exchange we will work hard to keep the atmosphere great and keep your package competitive. You can expect:

  • Regular socials - varying from the going to the pub to more energetic activities
  • Profit share related bonus ensuring staff are rewarded financially for continued success
  • Childcare voucher scheme if you have a young family
  • Pension related benefits
  • A great office culture with Sonos throughout


If you believe you are the perfect candidate please send us your covering letter and CV detailing your recent experience and why you feel you would be perfect for the role.

If we feel that you’d work well together with us, we'll invite you in for an informal chat as soon as possible.

  • 40 hours per week (Mon-Fri)
  • Salary to be agreed based on experience
  • All applications and queries should be sent to Amanda Williams via awilliams@spindogs.com
