We are looking for another skilled full time web developer to join our talented and enthusiastic team.

We are a fast-paced and energetic company with big ambitions, great ideas and a focus on building awesome web based products. We have an agile approach to development and are looking for a skilled and enthusiastic developer to join us on our journey.

You will be involved in client projects as well as the development and launch of our own (and partners) SaaS based products (Rusic is an example). You will play an active role in their development and be an integral part of the companies success, as the share options in Simpleweb we offer you will reflect.

The tech we use includes Ruby/Rails, PHP (Zend), JS/CoffeeScript, Node.js, MySQL, Mongo, Redis, Chef/Vagrant and cloud based services and more! You want to stay at the cutting edge? Join our team and enjoy the challenges.

Simpleweb is not a typical web agency and our main line of work is building web and mobile based startups. This means lots of exciting projects with technical challenges and real engineering problems to solve. We haven’t lost sight of the more traditional side of the web, we also offer solutions that involve WordPress, Drupal and Magento. We’re agile, lean, spread work throughout the team and rotate projects to keep the minds fresh and fingers nimble.

We work normal office hours but it’s quite common for the team to be hacking away on something cool gone home time… you will need to be of the same developer mentality. Whilst we all work hard, we like to rewards ourselves when we hit our targets, this is normally in the form of some random fun activity out of the office.

We are looking for a unique web application developer that understands the importance of good engineering solutions above all else, takes pride in what they deliver and enjoys being an active part of a hard working and smart team.
