Job Description

Help us to deliver amazing web apps. Inspire those around you.
We've got opportunities for you to work on interesting projects, innovate with the latest technologies and produce solutions that delight our clients. Do you have experience in developing complex SPAs? Do you care about writing clean, maintainable and testable code? If so, we've got a great role for you to stretch your wings and see what you're really capable of.
Who are we
xDesign is an award-winning digital transformation and software agency, founded in Edinburgh and now expanding our team in Leeds. Some of our clients include FanDuel, Tesco Bank, MoneySuperMarket and Heineken, and as we continue our strong partnerships, we're joining the growing tech hub at Bruntwood's Platform Building.
We're an apps and digital solutions agency, so every project we do is a little bit different. With every project, we push ourselves to do better than before. We work with clients to develop state of the art web and mobile applications that push the boundaries of innovation.
We are always looking to try new approaches, libraries, and architectures to stay on the cutting edge. As well as a generous salary, we’ve got some amazing perks and benefits including the obligatory ping pong, free snacks, soft drinks and fruit, regular catered lunches, games nights and a new city-centre office in Leeds.
Due to the ongoing pandemic we’ve had to get creative to ensure our staff are supported and rewarded. Staff wellbeing is high on our agenda, we have a running club, and regular active challenges with prizes for the winner. We also run social events such as murder mystery nights, online escape rooms, bingo and we also host online hobby evenings every Wednesday for those that are interested.
Our Team
We care about hiring great people so you'll be working with a team that cares. We support each other with problems, push each other to get better and celebrate success together.
Developers, testers, product owners and designers all collaborate as equals on projects to make the best product possible. Every day's progress is a communal effort and you'll be a valued member of the team.
