The Huxley team at work - discussing projects around the central desks

Front-end developer needed at Sussex-based web accessibility and development agency. Full or part time considered for the right applicant.  We are currently working flexibly with office space in Brighton and Shoreham and will provide a hybrid working approach to suit you.

If you are a natural problem-solver and a friendly developer with a good understanding of modern web development, we’d love you to apply for a job at Huxley!

We are a small, tight-knit team, and provide our staff with the autonomy and space they need to create quality work for a diverse array of clients, as well as the support required to allow their knowledge and confidence to grow.

Recent work has included making websites and running user testing for food and drink brands, hollywood studios, numerous local authorities, charities, arts organisations and more!

Huxley specialise in building fully accessible websites and providing high quality accessibility UX insight.

We are committed to a triple bottom-line that focuses as much on our benefit to the planet and our community as to our profit.  As a result, you will be involved in helping us to continue to meet our sustainability goals as part of our commitment as a B-corp, and also to community and pro-bono projects.

We strive to make a positive difference to the Internet – which needs to become a more inclusive, ethical environment that we can all trust. If this resonates with you, and you are excited by a career with Huxley – please get in touch.
