We’re on the hunt for an experienced midweight PHP Developer who’s ideally full-stack (but a bias in either direction is fine) and very competent with the likes of PHP, MySQL, HTML and CSS, JavaScript and core frameworks, Git Version Control, and you’ll get bonus points for the likes of Drupal (especially Headless Drupal, but other CMS experience is fine too), Symfony and MVC methodologies, jsonapi.org spec, 3rd party APIs, Linux, Apache, Memcache, Docker and Ansible, Elasticsearch and likes of Sas, Gulp or Grunt.

This is a fantastic opportunity for an experienced PHP Developer or Drupal Developer to join a growing, dynamic development team who deliver world-class tech solutions in the form of web-based standalone applications for a whole host of global and national brands.

It’s an exciting time to join the team!

The experience we need

The ideal Web Developer will be somebody who’s a bit of an all-rounder, who can roll up their sleeves to get stuck in. And just as importantly, you’ll be a good human. They’re a very friendly bunch, so they’re looking for professional yet affable new recruits. 

Technical skills needed
  • Computer Science degree or equivalent experience or training
  • Solid industry PHP experience
  • Strong knowledge of MySQL
  • Standards-compliant HTML and CSS
  • Strong knowledge of JavaScript and core frameworks (jQuery)
  • Excellent knowledge of Git Version Control
Nice to haves

  • Drupal, especially Headless Drupal
  • Symfony and MVC methodologies
  • Knowledge of jsonapi.org spec
  • 3rd party APIs
  • Responsive site building
  • Strong understanding of Linux and Apache configuration
  • Performance optimisation (e.g. Memcache)
  • Docker and Ansible
  • Elasticsearch
  • Sass and other front-end preprocessor tools such as Gulp or Grunt
  • Issue-tracking software, such as Redmine
  • Writing technical specifications

The role


As an experienced midweight Web Developer you’ll be able to get stuck in to medium sized projects and collaborate with lead and senior developers on larger projects to maintain a healthy balance of personal challenge vs comfort zone. There will be plenty of opportunity to push the boundaries of your dev skills and climb the ranks!

It’s often fast-paced with some tight deadlines, but you’ll be part of a great team and will have plenty of support around you. You’ll have the chance to work with some of the latest technologies, including Ansible, Elasticsearch, Angular JS and Headless Drupal. Although not vital, any experience with these will be a massive bonus.

The company


A very well established digital agency with exceptional client relationships, brilliant digital projects managers to keep things running smoothly, and a well-resourced dev team who love what they do and have (mostly) worked there for a number of years or more. It’s a collaborative and happy team and the newer team members are new because the team is expanding.

There’s lots of other fun stuff too, like well stocked beer fridge, very cool canteen area where you’ll often find colleague playing board games or cooking up lunch for one another.

What you’ll get in return

  • You will be working for one of the most prestigious agencies in the South West on their impressive portfolio of clients
  • A very competitive salary, depending on experience
  • 23 days holiday, increasing to 25 – plus bank holidays
