Who are we?

Leaf are a remote agency based in the UK. We specialise in complex information capture, helping organisations excel online by making it easy for their users to provide them with high quality information.

About the role

We're working hard to build a strong core of expertise around complex information capture on the web. To get there, we need help from a brilliant front-end developer who loves to build fast, accessible, progressively enhanced web applications that deliver tremendous value.

In this role you'll be working remotely and choosing your own hours, but within that flexibility you'll be expected to deliver features and improvements in an efficient, timely manner. The role is ideal for someone who likes stability and routine, as you'll spend most of your time problem solving, writing code, and shipping value.
