We're recruiting for a talented, technically astute PHP developer to join our team.
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 we take pride in the close relationships we develop with our clients - in our experience collaborative approaches always lead to the best work.
The job primarily involves the CMS development for our websites, predominantly on the Craft CMS platform. You will be involved thoughout our projects, from planning out and building sites through testing/QA, deployment, delivery and post-launch support. You will typically be working on 2-3 projects at a time and work closely with our front-end developers integrating their template code into content-managed sites and dynamic web applications.
You'll also be working with the team in supporting our catalogue of existing sites and providing ongoing support to our project managers and our clients.
