Who we are:

At Thought Quarter we work with ambitious organisations to quickly uncover the real challenge and put together ROI-positive, effective ways of delivering change. Typically, our clients have bold leaders with a clear strategy and they need a long-term partner to help them deliver it.

Our formula is simple – discover, do, improve. We work across consultancy, software engineering, digital experience, and ongoing support to put together the perfect package to support our client’s journey.

Thanks to our work, our clients can launch campaigns in minutes, optimise customer journeys, reduce operating costs, and deliver content to millions of users.

Some highlights for us include:

+ Creating a new feature for a top consumer app which supports 1.4m users every day
+ Designing a high-availability online store and order processing platform which processes around 40,000 orders each week
+ Supporting a major financial services organisation transform how they deliver change inside their business

When you’re on tools, you’ll be:

+ Supporting the Project Lead to specify work and accurately estimate it
+ Taking ownership of tasks assigned to you and completing them in line with our processes
+ Building responsive, performant, and standards-compliant web pages and components using HTML5, CSS, JavaScript, and relevant libraries and frameworks
+ Selecting the best approaches and technologies for the tasks assigned to you, and contributing to the overall architecture and technical approach of the projects you work on
+ Writing clean, testable, and well-documented back- and front-end code
+ Configuring and maintaining deployment pipelines
+ Occasionally troubleshooting live systems
+ Actively participating in sprint ceremonies including daily standups and fortnightly retrospectives

About You:

Ideally, you will have been working in a similar role in an agency or similar environment. You will also have:

+ Experience building bespoke websites (not from themes) with 1 or more modern CMS platforms
+ Experience of implementing accessible, flexible and technically sound responsive CSS layouts from designs and style guides using well-known CSS frameworks
+ Experience of writing back-end code in C#, JavaScript, PHP, or similar languages
+ Experience of working with at least 1 and preferably more databases like MongoDB, Elasticsearch, MySQL, and SQL Server
+ Experience of working collaboratively with a Project Manager and other developers to ensure deadlines are met and unexpected issues are tackled quickly and effectively
+ A professional, completer-finisher mindset that allows you to progress work effectively
+ Great attention to detail
+ The ability to think analytically and break complex problems down into simpler, interconnected steps.

Progression Opportunities:

As you develop in the role, you will take a more active role in solution architecture and our overall tech stack choices. If progression is your thing, over the next 2-3 years you will have the opportunity to choose the direction you would like to develop your career in – it could be as a Senior Developer, or as a Project Lead, or as Lead Developer, or something else completely. To help you get there, you will have the support of an experienced Non-Executive Director with extensive agency experience and whatever training is needed.

Working arrangements:

Our teams work from the office at least 2 days a week, although you’re welcome to use the office as much as you like. This means you must live within a reasonable distance of our office in Pool, Redruth.

We’re open to full- or part-time candidates, and we’re especially keen to hear from anyone looking to return to work after parental leave or a career break.

What’s in it for you?

We believe that technology should create life-changing opportunities for our team, not just for our clients. That’s why we spend over 60% of our revenue on looking after our people. Here are some of the benefits our team enjoy:

+ 30 days’ holiday
+ Paid sick leave
+ Paid parental leave
+ Private medical cover
+ Access to a huge range of discounts from high-street and online brands
+ A £300 training budget to spend on anything you like, work related or not – we just want to help you be your best self!
+ A fair, competitive salary that is reviewed by the board of directors every single month
+ Autonomy to choose where and when you work, subject to some ground rules
+ A seriously cool office in a seriously cool building with an amazing cafe, pinball machines, breakout spaces, and lots more
+ A monthly team social, plus a summer party for staff and families
