  • Ability to adapt tools, libraries, and techniques for each problem
  • An eye for detail and a passion for our craft
  • Good written and face-to-face communication of ideas

And you’d get some extra points for:

  • Server administration or DevOps knowledge
  • Experience with Magento’s GraphQL implementation
  • Experience with Varnish, RabbitMQ, ElasticSearch
  • A passion for security
  • Contribution to open source and community projects

Additional benefits

We offer a range of benefits such as:

  • Budget and plans for professional development
  • Budget for personal wellness
  • Your choice of hardware and software

Working flexibly & remotely at JH

We’re open to both remote and hybrid ways of working and had been working remote-first long before the COVID pandemic, while still offering our Nottingham office – with safety measures in place – for people that wish to use it. We’ve transitioned well because we’ve worked from home and employed remote staff for a number of years. We already had the processes, technology, and mindsets that are helpful, and have several initiatives that support the continuation of positive communication, culture, and wellbeing.

For this role, we are open to hiring someone who would work remotely. We already work with developers across multiple time zones in 6 countries, so we’ve built our process around remote-first working.
