Job description

Diva has an exciting opportunity for a versatile Front-end Developer/HTML Animator to join our award winning Creative Agency.

We are looking for somebody who has experience in HTML banner design / builds and understands complex animation and third party ad serving platforms to join our fast paced studio, working across some of the biggest names in the Video Games industry. 

This position is suited towards candidates with proven experience in front-end development and HTML animation, using software such as Adobe Animate and Google Web Designer, alongside experience delivering advertising and marketing campaigns. This role will require you to be comfortable working across both small and large-scale projects involving technical planning, conceptual storyboarding, delivery of standard and rich media animated builds, localised rollouts and liaising with third-party platforms during supply. 

This position requires someone who is technically-focused and interested in the way consumers interact with and respond to different design mediums. A proven desire to innovate within design and technical limitations is a must so a strong design portfolio is also an advantage.

We will only be considering candidates who have experience in working with third-party ad serving platforms such as Sizmek or DoubleClick and Flashtalking both in relation to platform-specific coding requirements, and QA/Trafficking processes. The successful candidate must have excellent communication skills and be comfortable dealing with third-parties ad serving platforms, publisher sites and agency partners. 

The successful candidate must demonstrate relevant experience from previous work, in either an agency or freelance capacity, covering all of the above. 

To apply, include a little bit about yourself, a resume, and a link to examples of your work. No applications will be considered without a supporting portfolio of work including, but not limited to, animated and interactive digital banners.

No recruitment agencies please. No Jooble.

At Diva, we believe happiness comes from loving what you do and we’ve built our agency around that. Unrivalled passion, boundless creativity and raw talent sit under one roof, forming one of the biggest and best creative agencies in the South West. We are a fast paced, unique, independent creative agency with our team at the heart of everything we do. Each and every one has the power to shape our future and we value them as much as we encourage them to value each other.

Reporting directly to the Digital Lead and Technical Lead, you will primarily be involved in the creation, delivery and management of online banner assets for use in both bespoke site takeovers and programmatic display.

Fast turnarounds are the norm, so our ideal candidate will need to have a varied skill set, a calm and methodical approach and the attention to detail required to be able to deliver cutting edge, high profile campaigns within tight timeframes. 

Localisation across multiple territories and formats is also commonplace, so your technical knowledge, attention to detail and proofing skills will need to be strong.

You should be passionate about personal and professional development, getting to know our clients’ products and always strive to keep up to date on industry developments.
