Recruiter? Please read our notes for recruiters page before continuing.

We are looking for an enthusiastic junior or mid-level Web Developer to join our small team in Macclesfield. Our ideal candidate would have a degree in Computer Science, Software Engineering or similar; an equivalent masters; or alternatively some commercial / agency experience. You’d be passionate about web development, not just willing but excited to continue learning, and have already played with several programming languages. We’d be super excited if you’d already contributed to some open source projects (bonus points for applications with a Github profile link.)

Block 8 is a young company, so as the fourth member of the team you’d be working directly with the directors and will have the opportunity to work across the whole range of projects we work on.

If you’re excited by that challenge, read on for the specific details of the job and send in your application.

Our requirements from you:

  • Experience with PHP and MySQL – This is important, as it’s our primary technology.
  • Some experience with HTML, CSS and JavaScript – Also pretty important.
  • Passionate about web development and technology in general.
  • Have played with other programming languages, maybe C#, Java or if you’re really cool, Go.
  • Excited to continue learning.

It would be nice if:

  • You'd worked with the Laravel PHP framework.
  • You had some commercial or agency experience, or:
  • You had worked on PHP projects with other people, either commercial or open source, in the past.
  • For the graduates amongst you, if you had a really cool web-based dissertation project you could show us.

What you’d get in return:

  • A good salary, dependent on your level of experience, with potential for performance bonuses.
  • A friendly, laid-back working environment with no need for “business dress.”
  • A fast-track through learning and mastering PHP, MySQL and any other technologies we work with. This will include one-on-one mentoring with our MD.

Interested? Please submit your application using the form below!

Please note that we may not start interviewing immediately, but we’ll make sure we get back to you anyway with some feedback on your application.
