avas Lynx is a healthcare communications agency headquartered in Manchester. From our city centre offices we create and deliver a wide range of engaging digital solutions, including responsive websites, microsites, mobile applications and games, to name a few.

We're a large agency, so we are structured into teams of around 25-30 people which facilitates better team work, efficiency and collaboration. It means we can be more creative and also more responsive to our clients.

You'll be the lead Front End Developer in this established team - so we're looking for someone who is technically strong, but what is also has a wide professional skill set and a sense of passion. We're looking for someone who wants to be part of something new - you get the benefit of the backing of a big agency, but the excitement of being in a start-up environment.

We're keen to hear from applicants who have either worked in a creative or digital agency, or a software development house. You will be able to show us a strong portfolio of work which portrays your individuality, technical knowledge and coding skills - you should be able to clearly demonstrate strong capability in all aspects of Front End Development; across HTML(5), CSS, JavaScript/JQuery, Angular 1, Gulp, and especially WordPress and JavaScript.

You should be a great problem solver and team player. You'll be the person who advises the team on the best way to approach a project. We need someone who can contribute to brain storms and the development of quotes and proposals and draw on broad knowledge and a broad skill set, which you are proactive in keeping up to date. You should be a great problem solver. You'll be the person who makes the recommendation as to the technical approach - sometimes this is going to allow you to flex your muscles and also learn new things, sometimes you're going to be looking for the simplest and quickest solution - we're not about reinventing the wheel or the use of fancy tech for the sake of fancy tech - we're about producing something solid and reliable for our clients and working in a clean and efficient way.

In return, we offer a supportive environment where there is a high level of focus on your career development - we're proud to offer our bespoke internal training programme; you can view more on #LXAcademy via the Blog area of our website. We're also very proud of our heritage and culture and we work in a sociable, friendly environment; take a look at our Facebook page and follow us on Twitter via for a closer look at what we get up to socially.
