Who are KHWS?

We may sound like a Midwest American radio station, but we’re actually an integrated agency of about 100 people based in the heart of Farringdon, London.

Still fiercely independent after 24 years, we have retained the agility to adapt to a rapidly-evolving marketing landscape that the lumbering agency giants can only dream about.

We’re a bright, lively bunch covering all the disciplines you’d expect (client services, creative, planning and digital development teams). And we’re united by a passion for behavioral science.

We leverage ‘Sales Triggers’ (as we call them) to create Brand Commerce campaigns that deliver more effective marketing. Put simply, we create super-clever work that actually makes people buy stuff!

As you’ll discover, we cover the full-channel mix with a big digital heart. It means we’re equally happy designing and building a stunning website, producing powerful interactive content, developing engaging social campaigns, implementing effective eCRM/ecommerce or creating
in-store activations.

We’re delighted to call some of the biggest brands our clients and proud of the work we deliver for them. These include Samsung, ExxonMobil, Heathrow Express, Dixons Carphone and ASK Italian.

Time to blow our own trumpet

Precious few agencies can claim to have a 23 year relationship with a client. It says a lot about the calibre of our people, and the investment we continue to make in them.

Thanks to this long-standing partnership, ExxonMobil has become a key client for us. This role will include working on some awesome projects for ExxonMobil, with plenty of opportunity to showcase your skills on projects for our other lovely clients (as listed above) plus the chance to get involved in exciting new business pitches.  You’ll be working as part of a great team and reporting into the Head of Technology.

OK, let’s cut to the chase…

We’re looking for a superstar Front-End web developer to lead our front-end team. You’ll be working across multiple projects and play a key role in defining our technical offer – our client list is enviable, and our work very public.

You can be a talented mid-weight or senior looking for an opportunity to step up and lead a small team – we need technical skill, passion and enthusiasm, great communication skills, and a wish to mentor our more junior team members.

What we’re looking for from you:

  • You will have been working as a Front-End Developer for at least 4 years
  • A high level of JavaScript competence, task runners, build systems and source control
  • Experience of using AngularJS for SPA’s and application style interfaces for both native and mobile platforms
  • A thorough understanding of code standards, compliance for accessibility, and device profiles
  • A proven ability to work with back-end developers using the Umbraco and/or SiteCore content management systems
  • A passion for creativity – you’ll love working in a creative environment
  • A people-person with a love of mentoring others and empowering them to deliver the best work possible
  • A clear and engaging communicator
  • Someone who keeps themselves up-to-date with the latest development best practices

Has this role got your name all over it?

If it has, we’d like to hear from you. Simply ping over your beautifully-crafted, typo-free CV and we’ll be in touch ASAP.

PS – There’s lots of other good stuff on offer too such as pension, healthcare, social events, etc. But more about that later.
