We're particularly keen to hear from people who're currently under-represented in the tech industry.
Is this you?
You have commercial development experience – possibly at an agency – and are now ready for a new challenge. Whether you call yourself a developer, coder, or engineer, you care about writing maintainable, scalable, well-documented code, and build for accessibility and performance.
You’re a problem-solver and a doer. Most at home when elbow-deep in code, you can also communicate clearly with less technical folks. A good communicator over Slack and video chat, working from home suits you nicely – and you have a decent internet connection.
Day-to-day, you welcome new challenges and can work on multiple projects. Comfortable with a level of autonomy – managing your own time and to-do list – you also enjoy talking-through ideas, and being an active part of a team focused on building the best possible websites.
You're fluent in spoken and written English, and you live – and have the right to work – in the UK.
If this sounds like you, we’d love to hear from you – and we particularly welcome applications from folks currently under-represented in the tech industry.
As part of our experienced front end dev team, you'll help maintain existing websites, as well as building new, responsive user interfaces – with semantic HTML, CSS, and JS – and wiring them into Craft CMS.
- Write tests and document the results
- Diagnose and squish bugs
- Write clear, useful technical documentation
- Take part in code reviews
- Keep up-to-date with relevant technologies, and approaches to work
- Have a keen eye for design detail; turning flat designs into responsive interfaces
Our front end stack includes: Sass, Vue.js, Twig, Craft CMS, Gulp, Web Pack
We're an experienced and straight-talking team of problem-solvers, who build websites that make life easier for arts and cultural organisations – and their audiences.

A belief that art and culture is for everyone runs through all that we do, so we have a strong focus on accessibility.
A 100% remote team
We all work from home, so are heavy users of Slack and video chat day-to-day, and meet in person 2-3 times a year. We can provide financial support to help you set up a home office if you need it, as well as providing a laptop or any other equipment you need.
We care about your work/life balance
Standard work days are Monday-Friday 8am-4pm, and we offer flexible working outside of core hours (10am-4pm). Though we try and stick to these hours, sometimes you'll be needed at other times – if you're asked to work outside of these hours, you'll get Time Off In Lieu.
Learning = good!
We support and encourage openness to learn, and individuals’ professional development – making sure there’s time for R&D as part of the team, as well as self-directed learning. If you're interested in doing a course or would like to attend a conference; holler! We're excited by new developments in tech, and everyone’s ideas and input help to shape the company and how we work.
Meet the team 👋
Passionate, knowledgeable, and experienced, we're a mix of developers, designers, digital strategists, and data geeks. Meet the folks you'll be working with over on the About page.
