Role overview

Are you itching to put your stamp on the web? This is your chance to kick things off in a fantastic design studio run by a bunch of designers and developers who really know their stuff.

If you’re into programming and want to be a web developer, this could be your big break.

We don’t just do this to pay the bills; we do it because we love it. We collaborate and support each other and take our work seriously, but definitely not ourselves. Our philosophy: if you’re going to do it, do it well – with decent people who’re into it as much as you are.
