Front End Web Developer

We’re looking for a new Front End Web Developer to join our team.

Full time | Based in Derby, UK | Up to £30k

Silktide makes software that helps companies test and improve their websites. We work with household brands around the world.

We’re looking for someone with top HTML and CSS skills to help us develop our own websites. Being experts in this field, our own websites need to be nothing less than an example to others.

We take a lot of time to obsess about the details. We're particularly focused on accessibility, SEO, and usability. We are constantly exploring new technologies and methods, and we aim for our work to be state-of-the-art. We need your help in getting there, and going further.

While the focus will be on our websites and supporting web apps, there will be many opportunities to create content, from blogging to videos, podcasts and apps. 

You should be proficient in HTML, CSS, and ideally, JavaScript. Familiarity with WCAG 2.1 standards is a big plus. You’ll need to be able to manage your own time, be commercially minded and have the confidence, passion and creativity to champion your own ideas.

We offer awesome perks, flexible working conditions and competitive compensation based on your experience.

To apply please email jobs@silktide.com and include the title of this role in your email subject.
