Job Description

Are you a creative and motivated future web designer? We have an exciting opportunity to work for an organisation with passion, expertise and experience in the Retford area as an apprentice web developer.
Are you eager to learn and genuinely excited about learning new coding languages, methods and expanding your knowledge base?

 

In this role, you will be working in a closely-knit team of highly skilled developers to bring to life designs made for our international client base. Working in such an environment, you will have the opportunity to learn some great skills and be part of a team working on exciting projects from responsive websites, to mobile phone apps to in-house CRMs.

On a typical project, you would:

·        Work with the colleagues, using test sites to see which ideas best suit the client’s needs.

·        Build the framework – or ‘architecture’ – of the site and add the command buttons, payment systems and video, sound or animation.

·        Make sure that the new site can be smoothly integrated into the client’s existing network, for instance linking with a customer database.

·        Work on the site’s appearance, often with a web designer.

·        Put in measures to deal with user access and security.

·        Test the site under construction to find and fix any problems – or ‘bugs’ – before it goes live.
