We are an established web and creative design agency based in Swansea, South Wales. With an increasing portfolio of e-commerce and web projects, an exciting role for an experienced Shopify developer has arisen to join our team of talented developers as they work on our portfolio of Shopify and Shopify Plus projects.

You will work alongside the design and UX team, our web development team and our project managers – you’ll be expected to be on top of your game at all times, knowledgeable and fully informed in new technical developments – inspiring our creative team and our clients with your exceptional competency.

In return, we are able to offer a competitive salary, a great flexible working environment and the opportunity to continue learning, all whilst being surrounded by a highly driven diverse team of people with a shared vision of success and who want the very best for you!
