Who we are

Cogapp is an international digital agency. We specialise in developing landmark projects that demonstrably improve the lives of the people using them.

Our clients include leading museums, archives, arts and media organisations. 

Our mission is:

  • To produce work that is well-conceived and beautifully executed; work that enriches the lives of the people who use it and creates outstanding long-term value for our clients.
  • To provide great careers for an outstanding team.
  • To build a sustainable, growing and profitable business.

This is an opportunity to work as part of a world-class team doing outstanding work for internationally renowned clients - we’ll help you develop your existing skills, gain new ones, and turbo-boost your career.

We particularly welcome applications from under-represented groups in the tech industry.

 

What we're looking for

We want to welcome an experienced, collaborative and conscientious web developer to our close-knit team.

This is an opportunity aimed at candidates with some professional experience developing for the web. We build bespoke websites that solve complex problems for our international clients. Help us create our next award-winning solution.

You will have an interest in everything web flavoured and won't be afraid of getting your hands dirty on the wide range of technologies we use.

We use Drupal, but we also use other open-source content management systems like MODX and Django. We use PHP, Python and JavaScript a lot. We use both Solr and Elasticsearch. We have front-end workflows powered by Gulp etc. We script all our infrastructure using tools like Ansible and CircleCI. We use AWS a lot including Lambda and Amazon Elasticsearch Service. You won't get bored! 

We know you won't be familiar with all of these things but you must be willing and able to learn. We have the right support in place to help all team members continue to learn and progress.

Experience working in an Agile workflow would be great, but if not you'll quickly be brought up to speed on the sprints and scrums we regularly practice.

We'll need you to be:

  • Open
  • Quality conscious
  • Proactive
  • Dedicated
  • Happy working in small teams.

If working in this kind of environment sounds good, please get in touch. We’d love to hear from you.
