Job overview

At Evans Hunt, our mission is to create powerful, positive experiences that combine strategy, creative, and technology. As a Senior Developer your role will be to write the bulk of the code behind our projects, breaking down requirements into tangible pieces of work that you turn into real experiences.

If the person below sounds like you, you should definitely apply.

  • You're an expert at some of our technology stacks. You have deep experience with technologies such as LAMP CMSes like Wordpress/Drupal/SilverStripe, JAM Stack solutions with React/Vue/NextJS/NuxtJS/Jekyll, cloud platform options like Shopify/Squarespace/Hubspot or front end theming and animation with GSAP and Three.js.
  • You understand how technologies fit. A developer can't be expert on everything, but if there's technologies you haven't worked with before you can distill them down to familiar paradigms and understand their piece in the implementation puzzle.

That said, there are a few activities that will likely take up most of your time. These include:

  • Working with project managers, designers, developers and QA to move projects forward, remove blockers, and reach solutions.
  • Architecting approaches for implementation and generating consensus among developers with informative estimates for delivery.
  • Building projects through to completion by creating new code bases. setting up build tools, writing code and documenting.
  • Evaluating and selecting frameworks, libraries and tools that fit the need of the current build and can provide value in future builds.
