We’re looking for a junior web developer for a range of exciting projects. This is a remote-working role for United Kingdom residents.

Overview

You’ll be working on Silktide’s website, the Silktide Index, and a range of other exciting tools. You’ll be proficient in HTML5, CSS, and some JavaScript, of course, and will work to implement the vision of our design team.

This role may suit someone relatively early in their career, with a desire to join an excellent company.

Who are Silktide?

Silktide’s mission is to make the web better for everyone.

We make software to test and improve websites. Organizations around the world use Silktide to help deliver great web experiences that are accessible to all.

Our customers include FORTUNE 500 companies, universities, governments, and web design agencies.

We cover almost every aspect of the web, including accessibility, marketing, content, and privacy. A big part of our work is helping people understand these complex areas in a way that works for them.

We are a 100% remote-working company, with an office in Derby, UK.

What we’re like

We heavily promote an open culture. Every member of our team keeps a Slack journal, to log their thoughts, work, and ideas. Everyone can read these. Want to know exactly what your CEO is working on? Done.

Freedom is key to Silktide. We’ll give you the freedom to choose your work, your tech, your working hours, and of course, your location! We don’t clock in and out, in fact, we don’t check your hours. As long as your work is done, the rest is up to you.

We’re growing fast and need smart, ambitious, and trustworthy people to join our team.

What will you be doing?

Initially, you’ll work in the marketing team alongside our designers and animators. You’ll turn beautiful designs into interactive websites and tools. You’ll work on the main Silktide website and on the Silktide Index.

As you grow with us, you’ll be given the opportunity to work on other fun projects including free tools and games, as well as our main global SaaS platform.

Nice to haves

  • Some knowledge of web accessibility

It’s up to you. We are a remote-first company. This was a deliberate choice before Covid-19 made it cool – we value work-life balance and hate sitting in traffic.

We’re currently looking for a United Kingdom resident for this remote-based role.

  • Flexibility to work wherever you like, whenever you like.
  • 25-30K DOE
  • Choice of your own laptop, operating system, and peripherals including large monitor
