  • Adding support for new features in our CMS Platform (e.g. internationalisation, content SEO analysis, giphy support) helping content creators to achieve their goals, while also ensuring that new features do not degrade website performance and accessibility.
  • Assessing the best way to solve a particular user problem, balancing pragmatism with architectural considerations.
  • Monitoring PageSpeed metrics, diagnosing accessibility and performance issues, and planning solutions.
  • Working with the team to come up with shared agreements about how we work, who is responsible for what, and when we're going to have the next team dinner.

What we offer:
