Web developer

Careers at WRP

Apply for this position


We are looking for a web developer with at least 2-3 years broad experience. As we are a small company the job will involve more than just web development – it is also about understanding how our business works, and solving problems as part of the team.

Our bespoke e-commerce website has lots of unique and interesting aspects and complexity. You will be working with our website manager adding features to the site, both on the customer facing side and on our internal systems and processes. The core skills required are PHP development but having frontend development skills is valuable too. Much of the work centres around back-office control panel applications that are written in Javascript and consume a REST API.


We are based in Saffron Walden (in Essex, not far from the Cambridge border). We are looking for someone based close enough to come and work here at least once a week – but remote working is possible for much of the time.
