Web Developer

Who are we?

Our journey started in 2013 with the mission of disrupting a heating industry reliant on unsustainable energy, which didn’t reflect the global need for an ecological solution.

Five category leading ecommerce stores and two innovative brands with products being manufactured across three continents later – Ignition has helped over 150,000 homeowners and businesses make the change from outmoded, inefficient heating to a more sustainable solution. Simply put, we design products that our customers want and the planet needs. We’re changing the narrative.

Set in the heart of the North Yorkshire countryside, our office buzzes with creativity and is full of curious minds, innovative thinkers, go getters and customer champions. We listen, we adapt. We take things apart and put them back together in a way that our customers tell us they should be – our products and our ecommerce stores, were all built in this way.

Our hardworking, innovative team are at the centre of our growth and success. We invest in them, recognise them, stretch them, reward them, and help them flourish within a development culture that values progress, learning and individual success. We are proud to provide the tools and environment to support professional growth and encourage each member of the team to push their own creativity and progression.

We invite you to come be the best you, with us, today.

The opportunity

We are looking for a driven and enthusiastic Developer to join our team, supporting both customer and internal facing systems and their supporting infrastructure. You will work closely with project owners to determine the best way to implement their requirements.

This is a real opportunity to help shape the future of a rapidly expanding company, supporting and guiding our junior developers and to influence and determine future needs and business requirements. You will be given the resources and time to gain experience and experiment with new tech stacks and ideas. This is a fundamental part of our development team’s ethos.

The team aims to remain neutral in the selection of a tech stack for each project and, as a result, you will be encouraged and inspired to improve your skills and embrace new ideas and technology. At the start of any project the team will discuss and analyse the best solution for the task, so you will need to be a great collaborator and listener to help problem solve and get to the right solutions. 

Current projects involve a range of platforms and stacks, from LEMP to MERN. The team also support and develop iOS and Android apps with native code and using React-Native. This work is integral to growth plans for the business.

  • Delivering impactful projects and continuously developing even better features and technologies within our product range.
  • Embracing the values or our business and becoming a brand ambassador, consistently contributing to our culture and driving the growth of the business.

What you’ll bring

  • Excellent communication skills due to collaboration required.
  • Strong organisational skills and a critical eye for detail.
  • Ability to meet deadlines, identify issues and resolve them with minimal direction.

Location

This role offers hybrid working, allowing an optional 60/40 split pattern between the office and home.  You will have the option to work 2 days at home per week between Tuesday-Thursday. Monday and Friday are our set office days, allowing for collaboration, training, networking…and enjoying our free lunch together at the end of the week, of course.
