The Company

Ayima is a global digital marketing agency built on a foundation of bespoke technology and data insight. Working with household name clients and exciting start-ups in highly competitive sectors, we develop effective, long-term proven strategies with our efforts having a real impact on their business. We've built our own tools, won awards for our work, and expanded across three continents. Now we're on the hunt for talented people to help our clients dominate their market.

You’ll be joining a well-established development team that works across external and internal projects. We operate three areas of development: Internal & public facing products, Data engineering & reporting, and to a lesser extent client facing agency style work. This role will be focused on the first of these but working across all three may also form part of the role from time to time. As the team continues to expand there is potential for this role to transition into a leadership position for the right candidate.
