ABOUT GIBE

Gibe is a digital agency based right in the centre of Bristol. We specialise in technically complex .NET sites, predominately ecommerce. We have developed our own ecommerce software which we use alongside 3rd party systems. As we’re a small team everyone has the opportunity to contribute and make a real difference to the company.

We use Scrum to manage all of the work going through the studio, running fortnightly sprints. You’ll have the best tools available. Your first task when starting is to spec and build your own PC and install all the latest software.

Our offices are located near the SS Great Britain on the harbourside. It's very easy to commute here via any mode of transport, and if you cycle we have secure bike storage. There are plenty of local places to get lunch for all budgets, for post-work drinks and there is a gym nearby if you're the active type.

We have a laid-back but professional culture, we have free beer and soft drinks in the office, table football, and casual dress code. On top of that, we’re a social bunch that try and keep a good work/life balance. We do regular socials, which have included: clay pigeon shooting, games nights, bar openings, pool tournaments and weekends away aboard.

If this sounds like your thing give us a call on 0117 428 6650, send us an email or pop in for a chat. 

(Dear recruiters, please don't call us, we like to do these things ourselves)
