You will have worked in a fast-paced agency environment in a similar technical positin.
You know MySQL and PHP like the back of your hand.

You don’t break a sweat when accessibility is mentioned.
You have excellent written and verbal communication skills.
You can critically review the code of other developers.
You have an energetic and positive attitude.

You can turn your hand to semantically marked up HTML5 and CSS if required.
You can demonstrate that you love exploring new technologies.

The opportunity to make your mark in an exciting growing business.
