We're looking for senior developers to join us in our office in central Bristol, developing websites, tools and apps for huge audiences. We are a part of the AKQA network and our clients include Google, YouTube, Skype and Tate.

This role will see you leading the technical aspects of a project with our friendly, expert team. The workload will sometimes be hectic, but the atmosphere is cheerful and proactive. We want to put you and your team in a position to write and deploy the best code that you can.

There are plenty of technical acronyms in here, but fundamentally we're looking for intelligent people who have an eagerness to learn new things, and the communication skills to be able to explain them to humans such as project managers and our clients.

As well as the technical knowledge, we need people that get it - people who can figure things out by themselves but know when to yell for help. Cutting down and simplifying complex problems with interfaces which make them appear straightforward.

  • Working in an agency environment
  • POSH (Plain Old Semantic HTML)
  • Development & consumption of HTTP APIs
  • Internationalisation
  • JavaScript frameworks & libraries such as AngularJS, Backbone.js or React
  • Google Apps & APIs
