Vacancy: Back-end Web Developer

About Us
Due to numerous tender wins and further forecasted growth, we’re looking to support our already five-person strong team of developers with another back-end web developer.

At Formation, we don’t just design and develop outstanding websites for our clients – we also have a team of digital marketers, copywriters and graphic designers working in our Warwick-based studio – able to support our clients with the entire management of their digital marketing, as well as print marketing management.

Our client portfolio is widespread – we prominently deal with engineering and manufacturing clients, but also have a range of retail, catering and healthcare clients on our books – so every day is different!


About You
You’ll ideally have at least three years’ worth of commercial back-end development experience and also have a good knowledge of a range of coding languages including PHP and SQL alongside excellent HTML, Javascript and CSS skills. OO programming, version control and MVC will form the backbone of your web dev toolkit.

Web development is your passion. You’re confident, passionate and dedicated. A fast paced and dynamic environment doesn’t faze you and you strive to keep up with the ever-changing trends within the industry.

You’ll have great people and communication skills and be comfortable working in a group supporting fellow team members. As you’ll be liaising with account managers and occasionally clients you will also need to be comfortable explaining technical matters with none technical people and putting things into layman’s terms.


About the Role
As a key member within the development team, you’ll be working alongside our dev team on exciting greenfield software projects for clients with an international presence.

You’ll be involved in projects from concept to delivery, working alongside numerous departments to ensure our projects are delivered on time.

As we pride ourselves on retaining clients and providing ongoing support to them, you’ll also chip in with helping maintain and improve our existing projects.

Fancy progressing your career, and joining us in our journey to become the largest media agency in the Midlands? What are you waiting for? Apply today.
