Are you the kind of person who’s always thinking of ways to improve processes?

Are you always trying to find ways to implement new technologies into existing infrastructure?

Are you looking for a new position which gives you these kinds of opportunities?

If your answer is yes to these questions then you could be the right candidate for Zogz.


We are a digital agency who specialise in e-commerce websites and integrations. We have a fresh, forwarding thinking development team who operate out of brand new, purpose built offices in Rothley, Leicester.

The ideal candidate will have knowledge primarily of back-end technologies such as PHP, MySQL Apache and CentOS (LAMP) but also working knowledge of front-end technologies such as LESS, SASS, Foundation, Bootstrap and Gulp.

You will have a real aptitude for learning and will frequently suggest ways to implement new features and improve legacy code and workflow. The role will involve taking projects from brief through to live products, helping with the design and structure as well as back-end development across a range of websites and systems. You must be self motivated, enthusiastic and confident enough to try new ideas but understand the reality of them with an appreciation for any technical implications.

As well as creation of new websites, the range of work will involve maintaining both legacy and more modern websites as well as re-factoring legacy code into newer frameworks such as Laravel 5. A large part of the role will also be maintaining and integrating with various API’s across different sectors.

In return we offer a competitive salary, a brand new office environment and a chance to use new technologies such as Laravel 5, Vagrant and AWS. This is an exciting opportunity for a motivated and organised individual who has experience to really hone their skills and help shape the future of the company.
