About Hex

At Hex we’re striving to improve the world through partnerships with responsible organisations. We do this by creating platforms that drive conscious, ethical and powerful change. We look to innovate both in what we produce and how we produce it.

Hex is a digital agency with a diverse group of incredibly talented people from all over the world. Our award-winning team is currently 20 strong, and composed of 11 different nationalities. We believe safe spaces where everyone can be their authentic selves are the key to a strong team - we welcome and embrace all identities, cultures, and backgrounds.

We work with startups, businesses, educational institutions and worldwide organisations to deliver impactful messaging, facilitate action and change the world.

About the Opportunity

Hex partners with organisations and start ups to help define and build their brand, product and marketing functions. We collaborate closely with our clients to design, develop, build and launch high-touch applications that change the world.

This role is for a key individual contributor to develop and maintain these mobile and web applications for our clients, as well as Hex internal and external projects. These applications are built primarily with Vue 3, and are powered by stateless APIs using Laravel. We're looking for someone comfortable making key technical decisions and happy to set technical direction for the products.

If you love creating greenfield, mobile and web applications that are scalable and performant, then this is the role for you.

About Our Team

Of everything we've ever built at Hex, we are most proud of our team.

We believe that empowered and engaged team members do their best work. We’ll be giving you the tools you need to succeed and will be looking to you for suggestions to improve in your role, and in every aspect of building a company. We want to make sure we find inventive ways to collaborate, debate, and learn from each other.

Hex has a Farringdon based office, where everyone has a spacious desk embedded within your high-performing team with storage for you to use. We also have several spaces for collaboration, such as meeting rooms and sofas. The office is provided as a benefit to help facilitate socialising and collaboration, but there is no mandate for its use. While most of us are based out of London, our team is fully remote and we are accommodating of this.

Joining our ambitious and passionate team is only one of many great perks at Hex. We provide a tailored development and training plan and a yearly training budget of £1,000 to foster your ongoing learning through books, courses and conferences. We'll provide a MacBook Pro with M1 Pro chip (or your choice of equivalent laptop). We also offer 25 days holiday standard, plus 1 extra day for each anniversary you have with us, and an annual bonus scheme.

Applying

Even if you don’t meet all of the qualifications above, please apply anyway! This description is a guide on what we think would be the perfect candidate, but is not a list of requirements. Everyone is unique and will bring skills and experience we haven’t thought of.

When applying, please include a CV or short listing of your skills and experience. A LinkedIn profile would also be fine. If you would like to, a cover letter explaining why you’d enjoy working in this role and at Hex would be great, though it’s not required and won’t impact your application.

Not the right role for you? Get in touch and tell us about yourself. We're always on the lookout for brilliant minds in all roles and experience levels.

We’re devoted to building a team of people with diverse backgrounds and lifestyles. We believe our success is driven by the unique perspectives, ideas and contributions that come from a varied team.
