PHP Web Developer Vacancy

Office based, 37.5 hours per week, at our St Leonards office just outside Hastings.

  • Collaborate with other team members to create and implement new animation effects and interactive elements
  • Carry out updates for existing supported client sites
  • Create client accounts for hosting, email and Google Analytics using our existing systems in accordance with company procedure
  • Review and optimise client sites for maximum search engine visibility
  • Provide occasional technical support to existing clients by telephone and email
  • Collaborating with our designers and fellow members of the development team
  • Daily monitoring of client servers to ensure speed and uptime
