Web and App Developer Jobs

Digital Butter was founded with a digital-first mentality, and deep technical expertise continues to be at the heart of our agency DNA.

Our projects range from elegant interfaces to expertly executed user experiences, across websites, e-commerce stores, web apps, and more recently, native applications (on React Native).

We’re always looking to keep our skills sharp, and our development team works hard to keep up with best practices across the front-end and back-end frameworks that we work with.

Front-End Development

Depending on the creative brief, our interface designs are created in either Sketch or Photoshop. Design will consider mobile and desktop breakpoints, and all assets are tightly compiled for transition to development.

We’re coding in Vue.js / ReactJS, HTML/CSS (generally Bootstrap), and JavaScript.

Our front-end web developers and app developers are working closely with creative and project management, from validating early design direction, through coding sprints, and into design review and UAT.

If you’re looking for a front-end coding position here at Digital Butter you’ll need to be fast, have an excellent eye for detail, and be a problem solver who’s interested in the design process, and solving creative challenges with technology.

If coding up beautiful and functional mobile-responsive and native app digital experience is your bag, there might be a job here for you!

Back-End Development / Engineering

Our development projects span best in class Content Management Systems (CMS), customised E-Commerce platforms, complex web applications, and digital campaigns. We work with PHP frameworks - most commonly CraftCMS, Craft Commerce, Laravel, MODX.

We’re regularly working with APIs to push and pull data from sources ranging from Inventory Management and Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems, Customer Relationship Management Systems (CRM), financial data feeds, and so much more. Our back-end development work is as much about technical architecture planning and clear multi-party communication, as it is about the accuracy of the code, and robust testing.

Without exception, project technical requirements are scoped out and budgeted against, and we are deliberate in never committing to work we are not confident we can deliver.

We’re currently building up our expertise in React Native to deliver native apps on iOS and Android, and so building headless solutions, and feeding content and logic via API to a chosen front-end is already at the heart of much of our work (particularly with startups).

If complex content management platforms, web applications, APIs, and load balancers get you going, there might be a job here for you!

Back-End Web Developer
(PHP, APIs, etc)

We’re looking for a back-end web developer to join our expert team in Hong Kong, with a joint focus on cross-project back-end development and engineering work, combined with direct technical support (offsite and onsite) for one of our long standing retainer clients - one of Hong Kong’s most prominent financial institutions.
