Front End Developer

Front End Developer

Are you a skilled Front End developer looking for a new challenge? Do you have the passion, skills and enthusiasm to succeed in a busy but energetic agency environment? Reech is looking for someone to support their growing Development team, working on a wide range of internal and external projects, building modern websites, solutions and systems for a variety of clients and sectors.


This is an exciting opportunity for an ambitious, passionate, and creative Front-End Developer to join a growing team of professional developers in a vibrant and energetic agency environment.

Working closely within a team of three, you will report to our Technical Director and support them on varied, interesting, and challenging projects, both internal and external. You will help produce modern, engaging, and beautiful websites using the world’s most trusted technologies and support our clients with hosting and website care.

Who we are

Reech, established in 2009, is fast becoming Shropshire’s leading full-service marketing agency. We provide a wide range of services including branding, design, digital, media, and marketing services to a wide range of local, national, and international businesses across all sectors.

If you’re successful, you’ll join a talented, close-knit, and fun-loving team, who work in a highly collaborative way sharing ideas, knowledge, and best practice.

This process is both creative and collaborative and helps deliver beautiful, unique, and innovative websites.

  • Working alongside back-end developers, implement responsive, user-friendly, and visually appealing websites and interfaces.
  • Convert designs and wireframes into functional, well-organized, and optimized WordPress themes.
