  • Keeping up-to-date with the latest technology and programming trends.
  • Converting video, audio, written, and graphic components into compatible formats for the web.
  • Using user feedback to identify and correct problems with a client’s website.

The stuff we’re expecting:

  • Experience working with coding languages such as HTML5, CSS, SASS and JavaScript (including jQuery).
  • Knowledge of PHP

  • Superb written and verbal communication skills
  • Excellent organisational skills
  • Solid understanding of web design and development principles
  • Good planning, analytical, and decision-making skills
