Join the Sideshow team as a Web Developer


As a Web Developer at Sideshow you’ll work at the heart of the digital production team, focusing on developing and implementing web and digital content for top brands. You’ll be responsible for creating high quality, structured and reusable code. So we need someone who knows their way around third-party, open-source packages and code libraries, and who works well to deadlines.

You don’t need an agency background to apply. But you do need a devotion to code and a passion for creative. Plus bags of enthusiasm.

You must also:

  • Have excellent front-end skills, including HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript and Ajax.

  • Be able to write good PHP.

  • Have a good understanding of MVC Principles.

  • Have experience writing custom JavaScript – with or without frameworks.

  • Have experience using code version control systems, like GIT.

  • Have experience developing with open source PHP CMS, like WordPress, Drupal and/or Magneto.

  • Know how to build responsive websites and apps.

  • Work well in a team. And individually. Standard.

  • Stay cool when the pressure is on.

  • Be proactive and seek out new opportunities. Like this one.

These will be a big advantage:

  • Experience using boilerplate PHP frameworks like Laravel

  • Experience interactive applications, including AJAX and websockets

  • A solid understanding of web services and experience managing infrastructures efficiently

  • Experience integrating with web services and APIs, including REST endpoints.

  • Good communication skills, and the ability to share complex ideas with other team members simply.
