Hello, this is Ben Lattimore from Lattimore and Friends and we are looking for a Junior Web Developer to join us!
So, who are you?
You’ll be friendly, with a keen eye for design and some initial coding ability. We definitely aren’t looking for computer science graduates - we’re looking for a genuine junior who brings a base level of knowledge and the enthusiasm to learn.
Indeed, you don’t even need to have a degree at all. Perhaps you smashed through all the courses on Codecademy or Treehouse, perhaps you did one of those 8/10/12/15 week crash courses, perhaps you did it the old school way with books from the library. However you got here, we want to take you further. It should also be said here that we’d be so stoked to give more women and/or those from other backgrounds their first step into tech.
So, who are we?
We work with some of London’s most exciting creative, branding and communications agencies, providing them with the best possible WordPress experience (amongst other languages).
We have a unique way of working that allows us to delivery great value and at the same time, maintain amazing quality.
We’re growing rapidly and need our another full-time developer to help us out.
So, what will you do?
Well, we always finish and refine our projects here in London and it is at this point you can spread your coding wings. You’ll be making final changes to the front-end, creating bespoke WordPress builds, doing various WordPress fixes and improvements and generally tackling myriad problems via code. You will have gone through our in-house WordPress training course before doing this, don’t worry!
Once you are ready, you will also go in-house with our clients to deliver the most critical phase - the in-house refining and finishing, working closely with the original designers. This will be a challenge for you but you will not be expected to jump into this deep-end until you feel confident.
So, what do you get?
The London Living Wage (£10.55 p/h), working out to £22,000 annual salary
A MacBook Pro
A great place to work in our studio, in between Whitechapel and Shadwell
As can be expected, personal development is hugely important to us - especially as the founder was a self-taught developer - so you will be given the following:
A paid subscription to Treehouse, the brilliant learning platform
The time and support to work on personal web development projects to help you maximise your learning. This could be a bespoke blog for a friend (or yourself!), to a simple web app to anything and everything in between. Make sure to bring some of these ideas to the interview.
So, what do you need to do now?
We’ll be holding interviews on a rolling basis until we find the right person.
In you application, do send over:
A brief description of how you got into coding and what tools you have used to learn thus far
Send over an example of a website with great design, and explain why
Any examples of your web work thus far
Salary range £22,000 — 22,000
