Front End Web Developer

Town: | County: Greater London | Country: United Kingdom

Description: Delightful opportunity to join our ethical team as a mid-weight / senior front end developer. A full-time role based in London with flexible hours available.

Fat Beehive is seeking a mid-weight / senior front end developer, with a focus on attention to detail and keeping on top of the ever changing front end landscape.

At Fat Beehive, we research, design and build websites, run discovery and strategy workshops and produce vibrant brands for charities, social enterprises and NGOs. Ideally, you would have a passion for the charity sector and a portfolio of work that reflects this sector and the work we do – or be able to demonstrate skills and understanding that can be readily transferred.

This role would suit a curious, creative developer already in a similar role or looking to move from client to agency-side. We’re a small and friendly team providing creative freedom and the chance to shape the role. Plus, you get to work with our fantastic clients – all of which make a genuine positive impact on our societies.

We are open to full or part-time applicants and particularly encourage applications from women, disabled and Black candidates, as these groups are underrepresented throughout the creative and technology industries. We offer flexible working arrangements for parents or carers who want to balance their commitments at home.
