Web Developer (Freelance)

Job description

Are you a talented and professional freelance web developer with a decent understanding of SEO best practice? If so, we'd love to hear from you!


Further is an award-winning digital marketing agency working with a number of national and international brands. We frequently work with freelance web developers to support our in-house experts with projects, including:


  • Development of small to medium sized websites for clients, typically in Wordpress
  • Content marketing projects, for example interactive calculators or "widgets"
  • Making tweaks and improvements to existing client websites, especially to improve SEO or to improve website loading speed
  • Developing our own modular SAAS platforms that offer market-leading solutions for digital marketing challenges. These typically involve significant data-capture and analysis, machine learning, algorithmic processing and the creation of simple but powerful front-end reporting.

LAMP is our stack of choice, but we happy to work with whatever technologies get the job done.


If you're available for ad-hoc project work and can commit to occasionally attend face-to-face briefing meetings at our production office in Norwich, please get in touch and we'll add you to our "little black book" after you've shown us what you can do.

Requirements

  • Proven, top-tier web development experience (we'll want to see projects that you've delivered either solo or as lead developer)
  • An understanding of SEO best practice in website development
  • Pride in your work, producing clean, semantic code.
  • Ability to take a client brief and deliver effective solutions, to an agreed cost
  • Experience with PHP and SQL databases
  • Experience with Git version control (we use Bitbucket)

Additionally, we'd love to hear from you if you have experience in machine learning algorithms, large-scale data processing and/or building SAAS platforms.
