Back-end Developer

Overview…

3Sixty is a leading digital agency that partners with like minded travel and tourism clients to drive results. We call it good people, good work. As an agency we set out with a clear focus to create remarkable digital experiences. Established over 18 years ago, we have had the pleasure of working with some great brands and individuals. We are now specialising in the travel and tourism sector, an area of passion and expertise. This change has driven unprecedented success, we are officially the UK’s leading digital agency within the travel sector, and are designing and building some great digital solutions.

The time has come to bring in another good person. And when we say good, we really mean great. Our success is built on our ability to provide clients with the best possible solutions. We have handpicked the best talent around to create an agency that contains digital experts at the top of their game. We have a in house team of 9 alongside an extended team of tried and tested specialist partners. Despite being relatively and purposefully small, we punch above our weight, working with the calibre of clients you would expect at large agencies.

Off the back of client success, growth and lofty ambitions, the time has come to recruit an outstanding mid-weight developer, one with agency experience, on the top of their game, with an interest in travel. It’s an opportunity to join an agency that is going places in an important role, becoming a key part of our technical team. Quality is vital and as a small agency, you’ll need to be a good fit; passionate, talented, entrepreneurial and a real team player.

 

What you’ll be doing…

As an agency we are CMS agnostic although we find lots of our clients are Kentico or Umbraco based, so this experience would be a huge advantage. We would expect you to work with our existing development team (covering both front and back end disciplines). We need someone proactive and energetic to help contribute the excellent service we provide our clients. It’s not just clients either, we also build products, for ourselves, and the travel industry. If you’re forward thinking, a real team player, and great at what you do, this might be the perfect role.
