Junior Developer - Torchbox Academy
A bit about Torchbox
We’re the digital marketing specialists for many of the biggest charities in the UK; we build digital products for international NGOs, governments and universities; and we created Wagtail CMS, used by Google, NASA, the NHS and thousands more. Our team of 120+ people is UK-focused but with a significant presence in Manila and a network of remote staff all working together to drive real change for society and the planet.
We are employee-owned, which means 100% of our business is owned by our employees (we call ourselves co-owners). We share everything from our financial performance and profit to decisions about the appropriateness of future clients. Everyone is included, everyone has a voice, and everyone belongs.
