This is an opportunity to join one of the UK's leading online gift retailers. Winners of the Smarta People Business Award, they go the extra mile to ensure that their staff are happy and have a nice working environment. They are a fast growing company - last year they shipped over 200,000 orders into more than 100 countries around the world.

You'll be joining the development team to help maintain and update the look and feel of the website, as well as their side projects and exciting new start-up. You'll be writing markup, css, and some javascript that fits into their current templates and workflows.

As your role develops you will be producing mockups and prototypes for planned features, under the guidance of their existing developers and design team. There is a broad scope for creativity and working on varied and interesting projects such as a new gift wizard; optimizing their checkout and product pages; and creating seasonal content.

Come and help them make awesome things!

They are based in rural Warwickshire (they have office goats!) so you'll need your own transport as public services are not always reliable.
