Front-end Web Developer
Working as part of our development team you’ll be focusing on projects that make a real difference to our clients. We like to push boundaries and create websites that are truly impressive, whilst also delivering results.
This is a full-time position typically with a mixture of in-studio and working-from-home – but we’re happy to discuss fully remote too. Salary is always dependant on experience, however, we’re looking around £30k – £40k pa.
About this role
This role will be ideal for someone who wants to do more than just make someone else’s vision a reality. You’ll be working closely with the whole team to help take ideas from concept through to go-live. Collaboration is a big part of who we are, so you won’t just get thrown some visuals to build, you’ll be an important part of the whole process!
As a small team, everyone counts – so you’ll be able to make a real impact.
Our web projects are strategy-first, so we don’t just dive in and create something pretty. We are UX-focused which means our sites go through a rigorous planning stage before we create a thing! This means you’ll be helping to create sites that work and have real purpose. And whilst we love WordPress, all our sites are built from scratch – you won’t find any off-the-shelf themes here!
Who we’re looking for…
You’ll know how to build beautiful, cross-compatible, accessible, responsive WordPress websites – experience building bespoke themes from scratch is a must, as is a strong portfolio.
Your bag of tricks will include:
- Strong knowledge of HTML5 and CSS3 (inc. SASS)
- A solid understanding of jQuery
- A passion for UX, performance and accessibility
- Good knowledge of PHP
- Experience working with Git Repositories
- Experience working with the WordPress platform in a bespoke manner
- Be a strong team player that is able to work closely with others
We’re looking for a middle-weight or senior developer with:
- Plenty of examples of previous work that demonstrate your skills
- 3-5+ years of experience as a developer
- A strong understanding of what it means to be part of a team
- The ability to adapt your skills and decision making to meet deadlines
- A dedication to your craft and an excitement to work with a growing team
- A mastery of HTML, CSS and jQuery
Our team and clients are at the heart of everything we do. As well as being passionate about creating a stress-free, nurturing environment, we also have a bunch of other perks on offer:
Profit-based bonus schemeWe have a 6 monthly profit-based bonus scheme, designed to empower the team to succeed and reward them for their hard work.
Hybrid workingWe’re a hybrid business, working an optional Monday and Tuesday at home, and then meeting in the studio Wednesday to Friday. You can take a number of extra work-from-home days for unexpected life admin too!
WellbeingOur wellbeing policy means the team can work from home on studio days if they feel well enough to work, but too poorly to come in. We also believe that life and work should be in balance. At Epix if something takes longer than expected, or doesn’t go to plan, we work out why, which means that overtime is very rare!
Extra holidayWe have a number of schemes for extra holiday, including buying extra leave, rewards for being part of our team for longer and we close for the Christmas break!
Career support & trainingEach team member sits with a Company Director every three months to review goals and progress, with a longer review every twelve months. We also have a conference and events budget. Roles at Epix have clearly defined progression paths, so you know what to do to drive your career forward.
Social eventsThe team control a Social Budget, free to use for days/nights out and social events. So far we’ve petted baby chicks, bounced on trampolines, and danced to ABBA – and that was just one event. In another we painted like Bob Ross.
HippocampusEach Friday morning at 0900 we have a 30-minute session to invest in our creativity or wellbeing. Try a new craft, practice a technique, or just walk in the morning air – whatever you choose.
Your choice of kitWe operate a mixed Mac/PC environment so we let you decide which laptop you’d prefer!
If you join the Epix team, we have a pre-boarding process which helps you to feel like part of the gang from the moment you accept your job offer – this includes meeting your new team mates!
