Job Vacancy - Developer

About Prototype

Prototype are a multi-disciplined, and multi award-winning digital agency with a customer-centric approach and an appetite for results.

Over the last 12 years we have built a portfolio of clients, ranging from start-ups through to multi-national companies working on a variety of projects including CMS websites, custom web applications, touchscreen software and mobile apps.

If you enjoy working in a hectic office environment, left to your own devices, with no support, solving the same problems day in – day out, this is definitely not the job for you!

We offer excellent benefits, with great continual professional development in a fast-paced but informal and collaborative environment.
