We’re hiring – Full time developer needed

Are you a highly skilled PHP developer who knows Drupal and WordPress inside out with great front-end build skills to boot?

We are an award winning, small dynamic studio that works solely on projects that are for the greater good and not just following the business as usual paradigm and are looking to plug the gap in our skill set. You would form an important cog in our small but happy machine. The successful candidate would be our sole developer and as such would be in charge of all in house development, so we are looking for someone who is competent, self motivated and can hold their own. Specifically we are looking for someone with strong Drupal and WordPress skills together with equally strong HTML, CSS and Javascript. As we are a small studio we would be looking for a team player and someone to occasionally wear a couple of hats, role up their sleeves and get stuck in.

You will be responsible for the development of website projects from requirements analysis through the complete development lifecycle to deployment. You will work directly with the Creative team, but managing the technical aspects of the project yourself. Projects range from several days to several months and include web-based and standalone application development. We will help with Front-end build but on some projects this would be your responsibility too.

A key component of being part of Yoke is that you are working on projects that are pushing our planet in the right direction and helping create a sustainable and happy future for all that live here.  Knowing that you spend 8 hours a day doing great things for good people will hopefully mean a lot to you, as it does for us.
