Junior Front End Web Developer

  • Warwick, United Kingdom
  • A salary range of £18k-£24k, depending on your current skill set and experience
  • Full time, Mon-Fri, 9am - 5:30pm
  • Hybrid working role

Your Role

Your day-to-day duties to start with will largely depend on your current skill set, but in time, we see the right person being capable of having their own projects where they’re the sole Front End Developer.

How We Work

We’re a busy agency, so it’s likely that you’ll be working on different projects at the same time. Some of these will be small updates or maintenance for existing websites, while others will be new projects.

We don’t like to micromanage our team so it’s important that you are organised, self-motivating and able to prioritise your workload. While you’ll need to be able to work independently and be a good problem solver, you will be working as part of a team so there will be support available whenever you need it.

Your Skills

For this role, your skills are more significant than your experience, so it’s not essential that you have industry experience, although it would definitely be a bonus if you’ve had another Junior Development role, or an intern position. We’re also open to the right person with no agency experience and to recent graduates, depending on your skills.

Essential skills

  • HTML5
  • CSS3
  • A passion for front end development
  • Be organised and able to hit your deadlines
  • Above all, be keen to learn and improve. It's a junior role after all - we don't expect you to know everything on day one.
  • An affinity for dogs - we have two office dogs (Buzz and Bruce) who are very friendly and are in the office most of the time
  • A portfolio with some examples of your work

Essential knowledge

  • Know how to write valid HTML5 using semantically correct elements where possible
  • Know how to use modern CSS3
  • Have some understanding of responsive website development
  • Have some understanding of how web development differs between different devices/browsers
  • Have a strong attention to detail

Bonus skills and knowledge

  • Basic PHP
  • Basic Vanilla Javascript
  • Experience using jQuery
  • BEM CSS Model
  • Git
  • Experience using Adobe Photoshop & Illustrator
  • How to build a responsive website with a mobile first approach
  • Be able to write basic Javascript to make parts of a website interactive
  • Understanding/experience of Wordpress
  • Comfortable setting up/transferring databases
  • Understanding of domains & hosting environments
  • Past agency experience
  • A good eye for design. While this isn’t a creative role, the ability to spot when things don't quite look right is a good thing.

What You Get

For the right person, working at Edge of the Web gets you:

  • A great working environment with regular staff nights out, a pool table, ping pong table and drinks fridge/bar in the office.
  • A salary range of £18k-£24k, depending on your current skill set and experience.
  • 23 days of holiday per year (plus bank holidays), as well as your birthday off.
  • Contributory pension scheme.

This is a hybrid role - you will need to be able to work from our Warwick office 2 days per week. This is not a freelance or fully remote position.
