Who you are

You’re always looking for opportunities to improve your skills. You like to show off what you’re working on and also learn from others.

  • You’ll manage incoming requests for updates and liaise with or delegate to other people as necessary.

  • You’ll ensure the standard of our output remains high and consistent across our whole product portfolio.

  • You’ll ensure new pages are published according to specification and in compliance with our web style guide.

  • You’ll participate in and contribute to our living style guide, Vanilla Framework.
    Work closely with UX designers, project managers and back-end engineers to implement exemplary user experiences.
