Job Description

a full-time position working on custom-built web and smartphone apps

We are looking for a full time web developer to join our busy digital agency in Eastbourne.

This role is not just about knocking out websites. You'll be working on large, custom-built projects for high growth businesses - it could be a stock control system, tablet or mobile app, web page layout, ecommerce store, building a report, analysing user behaviour, etc.

If you think Wordpress sucks, then we want to speak to you.
