Our creative crew is looking to expand and we want to hear from all of those who nerd out on form, function and font.
You can work remotely, it’s all the craze right now, with the view to join the team in our Bristol headquarters when required for team briefings. If you prefer to work in the office then you’re welcome every day!
WHO ARE WE?
We are Plaster. Our business is a fun, fast paced environment. Be it local, entrepreneurial startups or the world’s largest companies, such as BenQ and Microsoft, we work with clients we love and on projects we believe in.
We are a fully integrated team of marketing specialists, PR and social pros, designers and multimedia content creators, delivering strategic communications in three specialist sectors. Technology, culture and community.
This role will work across existing client digital portfolios, delivering the very best in digital content and infrastructure in order to support our expanding client demands.
We want to meet driven, daring and collaborative people who thrive on variety and welcome the unexpected with open arms.
WHO ARE YOU?
You will be a client side developer, with 2+ years of experience and a keen interest in progressing your development and design skills. You are interested in UX Design and the creative process as it applies to web development and execution.
You will have experience developing websites from scratch as well as working alongside larger teams to realise creative and innovative solutions. A good understanding of design and architecture tools and processes will underpin your core skills as a client side developer.
We are looking for a well rounded team player with a broad understanding of all things digital, who knows when to push themselves and, when to call in the cavalry, with the capability to manage external resources on larger projects.
Digital is pervasive in our business and we work across web design and build, motion graphics, filming and editing, digital design and photography. We’re looking for someone who is an absolute expert in some areas but thrives on learning new skills, staying ahead of new developments and wants a varied job with lots of opportunities for invention and disruption.
You’ll be part of a content creation team, working with account managers who understand the client strategy, but will come to you to develop new ideas, generate excellent ongoing content, build and maintain websites and deliver results, daily.
You will be comfortable working on a wide portfolio of digital projects, across a range of platforms within tight deadlines, liaising with clients directly to understand technical requirements, possibilities and limitations to deliver the most effective and creative execution to time critical briefs.
