10 Things You Should Know About Working at RWD
Are you considering applying to be our new Front End Web Developer? There’s a few things you should know before you get started…
1. We eat a lot of biscuits.
No, seriously. The biscuit tin is our greatest joy and our biggest downfall. You will probably need to take up jogging just to counteract the increased calorie intake.
2. We learn a lot from each other.
We’re a close-knit team of eight. Although we all specialise in different areas, there’s overlap between our roles and we’ve all worked directly with most members of the team on different projects. This works out better for some of us than others.
3. It’s rewarding work.
Helping a business go from having no online presence to having a sleek, well-designed website that gets hundreds of hits every week is, in our opinion, pretty incredible. We take a lot of pride in it.
4. If it’s your birthday, you have to bring cake in.
We’ll get you a card and present alright, but we expect cake in return. Just make sure it’s not a chocolate cake, because Adam has a thing about chocolate. We won’t go into that right now. You’ll learn.
5. The white board is our king.
As a marketing agency, we always have a lot of things to do at once. The white board charts the progress of all our current web building projects. It has Space Invader magnets, because we’re cool.
6. Everyone has a sense of humour.
We’re not saying it’s a good sense of humour… But we do laugh a lot here. A lot of the time that’s because Kerrie has sneezed. Honestly, you’ve never heard anything like it before.
7. We’re a growing company, and we’re adapting all the time.
The Internet is constantly changing, and we are too. We always want to do things bigger and better, and we listen to everyone’s ideas about how we can achieve that.
8. You’ll never get bored here.
In a marketing agency, there are no quiet days. When you’ve finished one website, there’s another to do – plus vital maintenance and improvement work for our existing clients. It’s a fast-paced environment, and we work hard.
9. Every day is different.
It’s a cliché, but it rings true. (Look, there’s another one.) We work with local, national and international clients from all sorts of industries, and they all need something different. You never know what the day will throw at you.
10. We aren’t as scary as our mugshots on the Team page.
Beneath the awkward smiles (or in the case of Matt, hard, cold, unflinching stare) we are actually a very friendly bunch. We will make you feel like part of the team – probably by forcing tea and/or coffee on you. Seriously, we drink a lot of it.
