We're recruiting for a Front-End Developer to join our team in our offices in beautiful Bath.
Mud are a creative, digital agency based in the centre of the historic city of Bath. A growing team, we work with a range of interesting clients from film studios to schools, charities to SMEs and e-commerce sites. And we work as digital partners for a number of internationally renowned creative agencies.
We love creating beautiful, engaging, award winning websites, and were shortlisted for Best New Agency in the 2014 .net awards. You can find out more about us and our work at ournameismud.co.uk/projects
You will help produce great quality front-end code, working in collaboration with our existing developers realising our designs and pushing the creative opportunities of code whilst adhering to best practices in accessibility, UX, usability and front-end development.
You’ll be confident with animation and using code to create a fluid, pleasurable user experience. We won’t just shoehorn effects in for the sake of it, but well used interactions can significantly enhance the UX, and we want you to understand how and when to use them. Page transitions, SVG animations and unique hover effects should all be part of your toolkit.
Whilst we expect you to bring your own experience and perspective, it is essential that you feel comfortable sharing your work and ideas with others. You will be comfortable working to deadlines, self-motivated and able to manage your own time and responsibilities but also happy working with our other developers imparting wisdom, experience and other useful nuggets.
What are we offering?
A relaxed yet fast paced and fun working environment, where you will be regularly challenged and helped to develop your skillset. We strive to produce the best work we can – no cutting corners, we take pride in making our work the best it can be.
We’re not just about the work though. We organise regular team days, a variety of social activities and set ourselves fun side projects to learn new skills and scratch those itches (such as https://ontheplane.futbol/)
We’re offering a competitive salary (£30-40k, depending on experience), flexible working, generous holidays and a workplace pension scheme. We support conference attendance and encourage our staff to look for training opportunities to learn new skills. Salary is reviewed annually in line with performance.
