Social Media Manager – Harrogate – up to £30k

Large, successful company, based in Harrogate, is launching a new mobile app product (aimed predominantly at consumers) and is looking for a Social Media Manager to join their marketing team.

You will join take responsibility for the social media strategy, aligned with the company’s marketing message, and the execution of all social content (both earned and paid). You will work across all consumer-facing social media channels, as well as LinkedIn, to raise awareness of the product within the business sector. You will spend a large amount of time on blogger outreach, ensuring that trusted bloggers are talking and demonstrating the app to their audiences, this could also include celebrity endorsement and the subsequent social campaign that will merit.

This is an autonomous role and you will have complete ownership of the social marketing function for this mobile app, so it is imperative you are an experienced social media manager, able to own the strategy and execute clever campaigns, alone. You will have an excellent understanding of content and how to create the most engaging content possible for the target customer base. You will have some design skills (for content and imagery) and excellent writing skills, and any interest in health and wellbeing would be a distinct advantage.

This is an excellent opportunity to an experienced and talented social media manager to really take ownership of the communications for bringing this product to market. You will join prior to the launch, building buzz, and there is the opportunity for this role to develop into a more over-arching Marketing Manager role, post-launch, as the department grows and they take on more junior staff. Opportunities like this rarely come up.

Front-End Technical Lead – Cheshire – £50-60k

Ecommerce solutions agency, based in Cheshire, is looking for a Senior Front-End Developer to join their team as Lead. Ecommerce experience and expert Javascript skills essential.

* Ecommerce is your trade and Magento Enterprise is your toolset of choice.
* The words “site down” fill you with dread. Having worked consistently on sites with huge order volumes you recognise the financial implication of every minute of lost revenue in a multi-million (insert currency here) business. You’ll do everything you can to make sure the code isn’t at fault if outages occur.
* Internationalisation and localisation are challenges you’ve already mastered.
* You’re the “go to guy/gal” when everyone else hits a dead end in complex Magento debugging. You’ve yet to see something you can’t fix or identify a workaround for.
* It pains you to see code which breaks best practice (particularly with regards to readability and performance).
* You know the common pain points in Magento and how to work around them. You may even have developed some community modules to negate these.
* Sometimes you realise that Magento is not the right tool for the job, you can articulate to technical and non-technical audiences why this is the case. Integrating to a third party or creating a bespoke solution is the right thing to do, obviously you can do this too.

Required Skills:

* HTML markup and best practice
* PHP for theming purposes
* CSS

* Compilation (e.g. SASS/Less)
* Grid systems
* CLI Tools (e.g. Grunt, Gulp)
* Frameworks

* Javascript

* Frameworks/Libraries (e.g jQuery, Angular, React)
* OOP
* Ajax/JSON techniques

* UX/UI

* Best Practice (e.g. Accessibility, Internationalisation and industry standards)
* Responsive and Adaptive Design

* Ability to transform designs into clean CSS and semantic markup
* Magento

* Developing custom Magento themes
* Performance improvements
* Caching

* Design principles (e.g DRY/SOLID)
* System Integrations (e.g. Google APi via JS)
* Version Control (VCS)

* Advanced usage of VCS (e.g. rebase, cherry picking)

* HTTP Protocol

* Cookies
* Response codes
* Caching

* Performance Optimisation

* Website Profiling
* Asset/content optimisation
* Browser dev tools

* Full software lifecycle
* Security

* SQL Injection
* Encryption
* XSS
* PCI Compliance

* Automated testing

* JavaScript Unit Testing
* Browser automation (e.g Selenium)

* Design tools (e.g. Photoshop)

This is an excellent opportunity to join a major player in the ecommerce solutions market. You will work with an incredibly talented team across large, highly visable projects for big-brand clients.
