Graduate Developer

You will be working for Smile Machine as Graduate Developer

Smile Machine is a specialist mobile agency located in the heart of Silicon Roundabout. We combine technical and creative excellence to deliver mobile and tablet experiences that look good and work flawlessly.

We believe that even the most creative apps demand a solid technical foundation, so we focus on getting the technology right first, while great design and user experience is never far from our minds.

Based in Shoreditch, we are surrounded by the most original creative and forward thinking minds in London. We are always on the lookout for the next exciting piece of tech or innovative idea and to work with like-minded people who are on the pulse with current trends and constantly motivated by new technology.

We like to keep things fun and relaxed at Smile Machine and can often be found at the local watering hole on a Friday evening to keep the creative juices flowing.

Job Description:

We’re looking for a Graduate Developer with a solid foundation in programming to work on a mix of web and mobile development.

This is a great opportunity to join a young and growing mobile agency in the creative tech sector. We work on projects for advertising agencies, startups, and everyone in between. We mostly build native apps on iOS and Android but we do web development too and many of our app projects have a web development component. If you’ve got drive, a passion for cool new technologies, and a good grasp of common programming technologies then this might be the role for you.

We’re pretty open minded about what we’re looking for in our graduate hire. Some prior mobile development experience is highly desirable but we’ll consider people with a web development and design background too. Ideally you will have some interest in advertising, design or other creative field as we’re not looking for a pure programmer. However whether you have a computer science degree or not, you’ve probably at least done some kind of math, science or engineering related study. And although this might be your first job, we’ll expect you to be able to manage your own time and take pride in your work.

We are based in the heart of Shoreditch where there’s a real creative vibe and drive for innovation. Smile Machine is a growing business which means you will have the opportunity to gain experience in all aspects of the business early on, taking on real responsibility with the potential to have a direct impact on the company. You will be working closely with experienced developers, designers and producers and will be expected to work both independently and as part of a team. We offer a competitive salary and have some cool projects coming up; we’re looking for someone motivated and passionate to come and join us.

Essential Skills

We’re looking for the following:

• Good HTML/CSS programming skills
• Knowledge of 1 or 2 other programming languages
• A relevant degree and natural technical ability

Desirable Skills

• Some experience in iOS or Android programming
• Some experience in back end programming languages such as PHP or .Net
• Photoshop or other design software
