Salary Around £35K

We’re expecting to pay around this sort of figure for a full-time UK-based developer. But we’re genuinely open to a discussion if you feel you are worth more, or if you feel you’d need to work up to this level. And, for the right person, we’d be happy to chat about options for part-time working or perhaps job sharing. 

Location

Our studio is based in Greenwich, London. We’re working from home during the national lockdown but we usually enjoy the benefits of a full-time, studio-based culture. We’re happy to chat about alternatives (including remote working).

How to apply

Email michael@cogdesign.com

 Send a CV and some links to examples of your work. Use the email or cover note to let us know why you’d be the ideal fit for our team.

Timings

Applications close Wednesday 10th February.

We’ll get back to all applicants within a week. That might be to ask some extra questions, to arrange a first interview or to explain why we aren’t the right match at the moment.

We’ve got work to get on with straight away. But we’d much rather wait for the right person than rush to employ a compromise candidate.


Overview

This is a front-end website (not apps) role, working within our team of designers, developers and project managers.

We’re looking for someone with aesthetic swagger and technical savvy.

Our back-end team handle the complex integration and technical implementation, leaving you to focus on the visual essence and online interactions. Although there’s bound to be some crossover.

You’ll be working in partnership with our design team to translate thinking into actions, suggest brilliant improvements and then push to make it all happen.

You’ll need to really care about finessing the detail and have a keen eye on the broader structure.

We need someone who can compartmentalise their thinking and juggle priorities. 

Our projects are hugely varied in scope and scale. You’ll be working on at least a couple of sites concurrently and will need to be flexible and adaptable enough to pick up on multiple short-term tasks as they drop in.

Mostly we need someone who is pragmatic, flexible and focused.

Within a generous and supportive team, you’ll be given the freedom to make this role your own and be empowered to implement improvements. We can fund courses and conferences, and arrange site visits and training to facilitate that process.


Qualities

 We’re looking for someone who can show us they’d be a great addition to our team. That probably means they can demonstrate the following: 

Personal

  • Enthusiasm for what you do
  • Enthusiasm for what we do
  • Organised and methodical with a meticulous eye for detail
  • A problem solver, calm under pressure
  • A multi-tasker who can switch gears when needed
  • A team player with a desire to constantly improve, and to help others do the same

Professional

  • It is important that you have the ability to (or the capacity to quickly learn to):
  • Interpret designs so you are building complete solutions not just making the front-end look like the flat visuals
  • Be sensitive to the nuance and subtleties that make the difference between good and great user experiences
  • Talk about your work in everyday language
  • Accurately estimate how long you need to invest in specific tasks
