Full-Stack PHP Developer

We’re on the hunt for a Full-Stack PHP Developer to join one of the North’s top digital agencies, right in the heart of Heaton Moor.

There’s no danger of having to deal with crap work, don’t worry.

Really, don’t.

Our ideal candidate will have skills in HTML5, CSS3 and Javascript, but PHP should be your main focus. You will ideally have agency experience, although candidates from client-side will be considered – as long as you have demonstrable experience of working on multiple projects at any one time.
