Front-end developer

at Expert Trades in Birmingham

Expert Trades provides software and tech services to trades professionals, helping them to manage and grow their businesses. We also offer a range of services to larger clients throughout the UK construction industry. Bringing tech to a very traditional industry has its challenges, but also its opportunities. We are looking for developer support to help us push on from the strong platform we have established over the past 3 years.

The ideal candidate will have experience in a front-end development role and will be interested in gaining experience in back-end development. They should also have an interest in learning more about modern PHP frameworks such as Symfony.

You will join a young, ambitious team based in a lively and creative environment within central Birmingham. We’re a relatively small team so you will have responsibility and tangible input from the outset. As such, we are looking for someone who not only has brilliant technical skills, but can manage numerous projects simultaneously, communicate effectively and work well with other team members. You will get to see the positive impact your work has on our customers on a daily basis, but must also be able to react quickly and effectively to challenges as they arise.

Please note that we are not looking to hire a remote developer, but are instead looking for someone who can join the team in our office in Birmingham. Also, we are not interested in hiring through an agency.
