Job description

Diva has an exciting opportunity for a versatile Front-end Developer/HTML Animator to join our award winning Creative Agency. Working with a client list that represents some of the biggest names in the Video Games industry, this is a varied and interesting role that is ideal for someone who has experience in Web Animation and digital marketing looking for a new challenge.

The main output of this role will be the online marketing collateral for global digital campaigns including standard and rich media banners as well as large scale bespoke takeovers too. This position is suited towards candidates with proven experience in front-end development and HTML animation, using tools such as GreenSock, JS/CSS, Google Web Designer and Adobe Animate, 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 high quality HTML builds and localised rollouts.

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.

Although not essential, experience with third-party ad serving platforms such as Sizmek or Google studio/DoubleClick, both in relation to platform-specific coding requirements and QA/Trafficking processes, will also stand you in good stead.

The successful candidate must demonstrate relevant experience from previous work, in either an agency, in-house 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.

We value great teamwork and the way we communicate and collaborate is key. Every person that works with us has the capacity to help shape our future. We’re looking for likeminded people who are excited by that prospect and recognise this as a great opportunity to shine.

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.
