Are you a Front end developer with a desire to work on amazing festivals and products? Flexible working available

A bit about us…

A creative digital agency based in Manchester’s Northern Quarter, Project Simply are a small, tight knit team, producing our own digital products – alongside delivering design, brand, websites and web apps with our clients in the festival, music, charity and lifestyle sectors.

We recently  launched our ventures arm, which allows us to develop and manage our own commercial products, whilst freeing the team up to work on passion projects for charities and worthwhile causes.

What we are looking for…

Not just another number, but a new member of the Project Simply team. If you want to have more ownership of the work you produce, like the idea of working directly with clients in the festival and leisure sector, and perhaps feel stifled by larger agency mentality – we are interested in meeting you!

We just moved into a beautiful new space in Manchester’s Northern Quarter, but are very open to flexible working, so whilst we would love you to be a part of our team mentality – you don’t need to be local, to be the right fit.

We are looking for a proactive, strategic thinker who will help to shape our development processes and the frameworks we adopt.You will be able to dissect briefs and business requirements – then scope, prioritise, and propose suitable technical or process solutions.

The Role

We are looking for a Senior Front End Developer to create incredible looking websites and web applications for our clients. We predominantly work with WordPress – so it’s really important that this is one of your leading skills.

You love to experiment, push the boundaries at every opportunity and understand what looks great, as well as what will work for the client.

You will be comfortable working and speaking directly with clients, as well as managing timing plans, developing scopes of work and delivering to a set budget. You will be leading a team of 2 other skilled front-end developers, this role will be a split between hands on coding as well as supporting  a small team.
