About us

We are a small company of four, covering a wide range of digital services including web, graphics, mobile and bespoke systems. We are hiring as old clients keep coming back and new ones are calling up every day. We appreciate the business, but in order to keep providing an amazing service, need to take someone else on.

In return for what you can offer us, we will reward you with challenging projects, support and other perks including bonuses. There are also opportunities to work on non-client projects – if there is something you are interested in and want to learn about or create, then we would love to do this with you. While most of us are based in Essex, we don't have an office so offer the flexibility of working from wherever you would like in the UK. We do regular catch ups and meet ups, but mostly online so this is probably not for you if you want a busy office-based environment.


If you would like to apply for this position please send an email to [email protected] We would be grateful if you could include your CV, any relevant links, a bit about yourself and why you would be great for the job.

We kindly ask that candidates only reply or enquire about this job listing - we have no interest working with recruiters or third party companies and will not reply to any queries calling on behalf of individuals.

Salary range £25,000 — 40,000
