We're looking for an awesome website developer with an eye for design, to join our fast-growing marketing agency working on a full-time, remote-working basis. We offer challenging work for real clients, intensive training and mentoring and a starting salary of £21,216 a year(plus benefits).
We specialise in the technology sector and our clients include well-known names such as Microsoft, Symantec and Dell as well as ambitious but smaller tech companies.

If you’re interested, please apply right away and remember, we value attention to detail, honesty and personality.
At Articulate Marketing we work together to build a good company, do remarkable work and communicate effectively. You’ll be joining an 16-person, entrepreneurial company in an ambitious but informal role - we take our work seriously; ourselves, less so. As a remote-working organisation, we pay extra attention to developing and maintaining our culture. That means we’re looking for:
- A rugged individualist rather than a corporate clone. We like someone with a good sense of themselves.
- Someone willing to speak up when they need support. This is a two-way street: we need you to put yourself forward, volunteer ideas and offer your help as well.
- Someone comfortable with communicating via web conferencing, Slack, Basecamp and email. Really communicating. It doesn’t have to be a lot, just get in there and put effort into getting to know people.
- A person who has a genuine interest in participating in the life of the company, whether than means participating in meetings or in our social events (for example, we like to have a virtual pub night in on occasion. No cliques or office politics here, just people who enjoy one another’s company).
- You to be able to come to London on a regular basis - 8 to 12 times a year - for company and client meetings. We pay your travel costs. You must be based in the UK or the EU.
