We’re Swanky and we’re a fast-growing e-commerce agency based in Exeter. We design, build and grow Shopify Plus stores that convert. 

Our ideal Front-end Web Developer comes from an e-commerce background with Shopify and/or other e-commerce platform experience. If you’ve helped brands create entirely new sites, been involved in complex migrations across platforms and you’re looking to be part of a fast-moving team, this could be just the role for you.

About Swanky

We’re working with clients in the UK and further afield in Europe, Australia, US and Canada.

We’re able to deliver the quality of service we do by combining our exceptional knowledge of the Shopify Plus platform with cutting-edge technology solutions from our partners -  DynamicYield, Tealium, ReCharge, Webtrends Optimize, Klaviyo and LoyaltyLion. 

And this means we get to work with great clients like HelloFresh, Wilkinson Sword, Union Roasted, SaltRock and YuMOVE.

About the Role

You’ll be embedded within a project team consisting of developers, QA engineers, designers, product managers, project managers, strategists and analysts. 

Daily tasks could include anything from coding a bespoke subscription flow, integrating an email signup form to architecting a navigation menu, supporting releases and triaging issues. Whatever the task, you’ll take ownership of it, collaborate with the team and deliver a thoroughly tested and high-quality solution.
