About Mighty Sharp

We're a fast-growing digital agency who specialise in launching and re-launching companies.

We’ve moved on from design and build projects – where we’ve had great success with the likes of YouGov and BAFTA – to long-term partnerships, making a meaningful impact on organisations over a period of months and years.

Through these partnerships we offer wide-ranging digital advice at a senior level, re-build foundations if necessary, and follow through with the delivery and continued development of complex digital platforms.

We really care about what we do. We’re a tight-knit team, and we’re always striving to make our service and end-products better. We never settle for ‘OK’, we regularly take on big challenges, and we set high expectations for the work we produce.

But work-life balance is important. There’s the odd time where we need to stay late, but we generally keep to a (hard-working) 8-hour day. We have regular lunches together, game nights, pub trips, and – god forbid – the odd evening of karaoke.

This round of hiring represents an exciting new chapter, and we’re on the lookout for some great people to come on board and grow with us.

The role

Simply put, we’re looking for a Front-End Developer.

You’ll work alongside our experienced Technical Director and Front-End/JavaScript Developer, using best-practice methodologies and cutting-edge technologies.

Here’s the boxes we’d like you to tick:

  • 2+ years of commercial experience building websites with HTML & CSS.

  • 1+ years of commercial experience using CSS pre-processors, such as Sass, Less or Stylus.

  • Experience using Git.

  • Great communication skills are a must. You’ll regularly be required to explain technical concepts to a varied audience ranging from fellow developers and project managers to clients.

  • A keen eye for detail. We pride ourselves on the quality of the work we produce. So we need someone who will not only critique their own work, but also the work of other team members.

  • Bonus points if you've already worked in an Agile environment

We’d also like you to have:

  • Knowledge of BEM principles.

  • Some experience working with jQuery.

  • Experience using npm and task runners/module bundlers, such as Gulp and Webpack.

  • Ability to maintain some semblance of a sense of humour under pressure.

  • Ability to critique and improve (systems, processes…choice of office snacks).

In return, we’d offer:

  • The opportunity to help launch new ventures and larger companies pivot. Along the way, you'll learn the basic principles of how to do so.

  • The experience of working in a growing company. We anticipate our development team will double in the next 12-18 months.

  • One-on-one guidance and career development from our Technical Director Tony Dong, who was previously TD of Touchnote and M&C Saatchi.

  • Work-life balance. There’s times we need to pull long weeks, but in general, we’re in this for the long-haul – so we don’t see the benefit in consistently working over a 40/45 hour week.

  • A talented, driven, and all-round lovely bunch of co-workers.

  • Opportunities to enjoy/embarrass yourself at our regular socials.

If you've got any questions, please give us a call or drop an email to [email protected], cc'ing [email protected]

We’re looking for someone to start quickly, so please submit your CV and Covering Letter (well, Covering Email) ASAP.

Salary range £25,000 — 35,000
