We’re growing... and on the lookout for another Front End Developer to join our awesome team

 

 

The role.

As part of our experienced dev team, you’ll work alongside our wider team of specialists (everything from client services to data and insights, UX, product design and delivery) to build and deliver exceptional solutions that meet the needs of our clients and their customers.

We believe that a great developer thrives on technology and gets a buzz out of delivering cutting edge solutions on the latest platforms and technology stacks, and here at Freestyle, you’ll get the opportunity to do just that across a real variety of projects.

This is an exciting opportunity to join a thriving and dynamic development team (with an outstanding sense of humour) in a growing and evolving product studio, so if you’re on the lookout for your next move, and the fast-paced agency world excites and interests you read on and get in touch.

You'll be based in our rural offices near Leamington Spa, Warwickshire (currently fully remote due to COVID restrictions - part remote and home working options thereafter).
