The Role

We know a good developer isn’t a jack of all trades, and we aren’t looking for someone who knows everything. We are looking for a back-end developer with a wealth of knowledge in their field.

We are looking for someone with:

  • An eye for attractive and user-friendly design.
  • Attention to detail.
  • A keen interest in emerging web technologies.
  • A thirst for knowledge and desire to always be improving.

Peacehaven is only a short drive from Brighton and there is ample free parking available. Alternatively, there are direct buses dropping off (literally) on our doorstep from Brighton and Eastbourne.
