The Position

The opportunity: 

As a junior back end developer at Merchant, you have the exciting opportunity to work on a wide variety of new, innovative development projects for our impressive and expanding list of clients. You’ll be driven by a passion for quality, delivering reliable, quality solutions meeting deadlines based on estimates that you have helped set yourself alongside the support of senior members of the development team. Sat within the studio team and reporting to the CTO, the role gives you the opportunity to work and learn alongside a talented and friendly group of professionals, in a fun, dedicated, and supportive agency environment.  

You’ll work closely with our front end developers and designers on projects, working from a statement of work or specification document together with close consultation with their account manager. Taking the beautiful work produced from creative, you’ll integrate this with an elegant back end solution that dependant on the project, either you alone or working with a team of back end developers will develop and document. 

We’ll expect you to learn quickly and take a keen interest in technology and the digital landscape. You’ll work closely with our digital marketing team to ensure the solutions you help build are optimised to deliver the outcome our clients expect. You’ll need to solve problems, and crucially work well with others in the studio team, and the wider agency team. 

You’ll be familiar with using source control, and get to grips with continuous integration. You’ll also need to be carefully organised and efficient, using issue tracking and planning software to help stay on track with projects. You’ll be expected to help others to deploy your projects, and help maintain code with bug fixing and support. 

Supported by senior members of the team, you’ll work on support tickets raised by our clients. You’ll be asked to help estimate and quote for work, and with the support of their Merchant account manager you’ll be given requirements to work on from our clients. 

It’s also a great opportunity for you to develop a pragmatic grasp of the commercial business perspective and how that relates to the decisions you make when developing a high-quality piece of work.
