Web 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.

Butter's 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. Enhancing the interactive UX with animation, and styling in structural Sass. Integrating Backend API with frontend end callbacks with Restful API or GraphQL.

Our front-end web 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!

Butter's Back-End Development / Engineering [Hiring Now]

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

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 finding solution for complex problems, coding up large scale ZERO downtime web applications, robust APIs, and load balancers get you going, there might be a job here for you!

PHP Back End Web Developer / Engineer
(LAMP Stack)

Based in our Hong Kong office or Full-time Remote

We’re looking for a Back End web developer to join our expert team in Hong Kong, with a focus on cross-project back-end development and engineering work. Across both new web builds and direct technical support for our long standing retainer clients.

Performance Plan


Expected Month 1

During onboarding you will be brought up to speed by our Lead Developer on all of Digital Butter’s development, project management and communications tools and frameworks (eg Asana, Slack, etc). You’ll quickly learn our design and development workflows, and will gradually be integrated onto various live projects with a focus on back-end architecture and engineering (PHP, generally Craft CMS or Laravel). You will also be introduced to the code-base for Digital Butter’s largest clients, in order to transition on to the account as the primary engineering point of contact for technical support.


Expected Month 2

You will be assigned to one or two development projects, working in closely with the creative and project management team, under guidance from our Lead Developer. By now you will be entrenched in our workflow and managing your own workload and scheduling via our project management tool, Asana. You will be taking briefs from our Strategy team and working with them on solutions to client challenges executing engineering sprints for the back-end functionality of projects (with some front-end prototyping in line with Sketch UI designs).


Expected from Month 3 and onward

You are now assisting Digital Butter with technical and architecture planning on new projects, and are working independently on various development projects, either new builds - where you work closely with our web designer - or updates to existing clients technology and infrastructure. You are now across all major clients and can put together top level technical plans based on their requests for changes or feature updates to their current websites. Your focus is predominantly on back-end application logic and database structure, though you will be building out front-end as part of the process to validate work with our design and strategy teams, and the client.

Other Details

Salary will be determined by previous experience.

18 days annual leave per year. Health insurance will be provided after completion of probation.
