We are looking to hire a distinguished developer to assume the role of technical lead at our London office. As our lead London developer, you’ll be at the helm of our local development efforts. You assess the technical feasibility of creative concepts and help to build neat prototypes to pitch new technologies to our clients. The job involves frequent client contact and builds on your ability to talk about technical matters in a clear-cut way.
For this hands-on position, we need someone with at least five years of experience in development, preferably in digital production or advertising. When it comes to programming, you’re a true polyglot and have functional knowledge of both front-end and back-end languages (at a minimum including HTML, CSS and JS). As we increasingly employ both, knowledge of WebGL and mobile development are considered a big plus. To make sure your programming prowess stays up to par, we encourage learning on the job, for example by frequenting our Amsterdam headquarters to exchange best practices for new applications. In addition to knowing your languages, you can offer advice on hosting, security, performance and the prevailing Internet memes.
As our UK office, you stand at the base of our prolific digital campaigns. The projects you work on often engage with experimental uses of technology and can be technically challenging – even more so because launch dates are sacred in our line of work. Your extensive expertise in conquering technical problems will safeguard such projects from the get-go. If even our annual winter sports trip doesn't scare you off, we'd love to have you on board as captain of creative development efforts.
