We are recruiting for

Junior Web Developer

The Role

Due to continued success and forthcoming projects, Visual Identity is looking for a dynamic Junior Web Developer to join our team, due to continued success and forthcoming website projects in the new year.

As Shopify Partners, the bulk of our growing demand is within our Shopify services, so we are ideally looking for new people with experience of working within and developing for Shopify.

Who we are

We are one of the longest established award-winning creative agencies in Milton Keynes established in 1989, over 30 years ago. We build long term relationships with our clients and support them across the full marketing mix and digital services. We get to know our client’s marketplaces and understand their competitors. We believe shared ideas are more effective, preferring less to more and our ability to question makes us partners rather than suppliers.
We deliver the highest levels of service by focusing on our customers’ precise needs and work in partnership with our client’s in-house teams to tailor bespoke creative solutions to set our customers apart from their competitors and deliver measurable results.
