An opportunity to join the growing team at this leading Web Design, Digital Marketing and eCommerce Website specialist and work in their brand new offices in Exeter City Centre. You'll be joining a team who like to bring fun into their jobs but with a serious focus on delivering first class websites for their clients. Ideally, they are looking for someone to work full time with them. Their core hours are 9-5 but they are pretty flexible to fit in with your commitments. After 3 months you'll be able to join their company pension scheme and enjoy the benefits of an NHS Top Up facility. And you always get your birthday off as well.


They are looking for a PHP/MySQL Developer responsible for managing and developing back-end services for clients' websites. Your primary focus will be the development of custom-built systems to help drive their clients' websites, developing sites in Wordpress, Magento and CS-Cart as well as custom integrations with third party applications like SagePay and Stripe.

They need you to write high quality, fast PHP and MySQL to a high standard, in a timely and scalable way.
