I'm looking for a front end developer for an initial 3 month contract with a view to it becoming a permanent position.

My company is small and pretty much a new kid on the block so you need to be enthusiastic, take real pride in your work, and be willing to help out with things which are not strictly in your job description.

What you can get in return is the chance to become an integral part of the business & help shape how we do things.

Essential Abilities

  • Slicing a .psd and writing progressively enhanced HTML5 & CSS3
  • Writing vanilla JavaScript
  • Know your jQuery
  • Have at least dabbled with responsive web design

Bonus Abilities

  • Knowledge or exposure to PHP or similar high-level language
  • Experience of working with CMSs (ideally Wordpress) and creating template/themes for them
  • Have design skills
  • Use a css preprocessor like Less or Sass
  • Use or have used source control software
  • Comfortable meeting clients
  • Comfortable pitching and giving presentations

What I'd like to see

  • Some examples of your work
  • A short paragraph sized bio
  • Link to any profile pages you may have on Dribble, Forrst, Zerply or similar
  • Your renumeration expectations

Word documents, PDFs or life stories not necessary.

Interested? Send an email to paolo.ciarrocca@gmail.com


P.S. If you're wondering who my company is, if you're the kind of person we'd like to hire you should be able to figure that out.

I think I should add that we are a pretty new web agency, there are 4 of us and this would be our first external hire.

We are Webwise Creative and until recently we were just a partnership trading under the name Webwise Partnership. You can find out more about what we've done so far at http://www.webwisepartnership.com

Currently the role would involve working on sites for small and medium local businesses. We do have projects for larger companies and public boides in pipeline and it's mainly for that reason that we are looking for someone.
