Back End Web Developer

We're an award-winning digital agency based in Eastbourne, specialising in custom software development for high growth businesses. We work with B2B and B2C clients in a wide range of sectors including finance, travel, construction, publishing, healthcare, utilities, fast moving consumer goods, and professional audio.

We are looking for a full time web developer to join our busy digital agency in Eastbourne, working on custom-built web and smartphone apps.

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.
