Developer Jobs at Focus

We are expanding the technical team at Focus and so we're looking for two full time web developers to join us at our HQ in Temple Quay, Bristol.

You'll be working on lots of projects for our varied range of clients, including local authorities, government agencies, charities and commercial organisations. We're looking for someone with a focus on 'front end' web development, and someone with more 'back end' and programming experience.

Both roles are paid between £24k and £34k based on experience but if we meet the right person and they like us, those salaries aren't fixed. They do however represent the level of skills and experience we'd like for both roles.

We are a friendly team with a non-corporate working environment based in swish new offices right by the train station, overlooking the 'World of Food Fair' that takes place every Thursday in Temple Quay (yum). Everyone gets lots of time off including extended Christmas breaks and the whole team have significant input into company strategy.

For the 'front end' role we're looking for:
 - really strong 'build' skills in HTML, CSS and JQuery and a solid portfolio of well built, semantic and responsive web sites.
 - knowledge and passion for creating and building usable and accessible web sites.
 - some experience with Git or other version control.
 - any knowledge of an open source framework such as PHP or Ruby would be of some advantage.
 - whilst commercial experience in a similar role may be of benefit, it's not a show stopper.

For the more technical 'back end' role, ideally we'd like:
 - a good grounding in developing web applications in an open source framework - ideally Ruby on Rails (as that's what we use) but we are keen to meet with people with relevant experience in other open source languages.
 - some 'front end' skills including HTML, CSS and JQuery.
 - working experience with Git or other version control.
 - working experience of automated tests or test driven development would be a significant advantage.

If you'd like to apply then please send all the relevant details to:

CV's are great but we're really keen to see examples of your work.

We're hoping to interview before the end of February.

Strictly no agencies.
