Wordpress Web Developer

Salary: £24K – £28K negotiable depending on experience

Who we are:

We’ve been passionate about making a difference to our clients’ bottom line since 2004, using our bespoke blend of precision engineered digital marketing skills. Our client base is wide and varied – there’s never a dull day at Artemis – and we make it our mission to deliver outstanding results and exceed client expectations. Due to our ongoing record growth, we are now expanding our team and are seeking a motivated and enthusiastic WordPress Web Developer to join us. Our offices are in a beautiful rural location with stunning views across to the South Downs, perfect for a countryside walk or a picnic style lunch (however it does mean your own transport is needed for the office-working days).

Working at Artemis is a commitment that works both ways. We recognise that we’re all human and will help you achieve a healthy work/life balance with flexible working practices. We treat each other with respect and compassion, so that everyone feels fully supported to be their best selves. We value all individual contributions and encourage our team members to be creative, innovative and strive for personal progression.

If you’re looking for your next role to give you the autonomy to make decisions based on your experience, knowledge and understanding of the strategic goals this could be the perfect fit. Keep in mind that flexibility is our middle name. Want to work set hours?… that’s fine! Want to have flexible hours from one week to the next?… great! Do you want a mix of office based and home working?… perfect! Whatever you want we can find a mutually beneficial approach. But don’t just take our word for it, our company reviews from our team members speak for themselves. Many of our 30-strong team work fully remotely, due to their home locations across the UK but the majority organise their own unique hybrid mix of office and home-based working to fit around their personal commitments.

  • Updating website content.

About you:

Do you get a massive sense of achievement when you have built a new website? That’s what we love too; seeing our clients’ online presence further improved by a beautifully designed and functionally sound bespoke new website. If you are as passionate as us about building websites, using the lightest code possible and delivering the fastest sites, we would love to hear from you if you can demonstrate some (or all) of the following skills:
