Current positions

Keen to get to know us better?

Our current open positions are below. If your perfect role is not currently available, but you like what you see, we’d still love to hear from you. We’re always on the lookout for good people who get what we do and want to contribute.

PHP Developer
(Manchester)

August is looking for a Back-End/PHP Web Developer to join our team. You’re well established as a developer, you love working with WordPress, Drupal, and PHP, and you understand that your approach to owning and solving sophisticated problems—of all kinds—is just as critical as your code.

We are looking for rounded developers with experience working on WordPress websites within a LAMP stack environment. You have a solid understanding of the programming principles involved with such duties. We’re not looking for someone who would describe themself as a full stack developer. Beyond that, you love being presented with sophisticated problems, taking ownership of the approach required to solve those problems, and working as part of a smart, well-trained, and multi-disciplinary team to design and develop award-winning, meaningful work.

August is a global digital practice, founded in Melbourne, Australia. This role sits in our recently-created Manchester office. You’ll be playing a key role in how we grow and shape August in the UK. We’re looking to grow fast, and you’ll play a key part in achieving that goal. Join us and you will be part of a driven team that learns and grows together. You will be a key part of our future – able to contribute as we build, and be part of the direction we take.

  • You're an awesome PHP developer with a passion and curiosity for WordPress.
  • Not only do you love building WordPress sites, but you know how to extend them the WordPress way.
  • You love solving complex problems for clients.
  • Can work autonomously but loves being part of a team and actively contributing.
  • Good problem-solving skills and the ability to think clearly and logically.
  • Experience with source control (Git and related services).
  • Willingness to take ownership of projects.

  • Flexible/hybrid working: We work with a level of trust and flexibility that you may find refreshing. We maintain flexible work practices and have done so since the company started in 2005. You are not expected to work in the office or remote full time; our teams self-manage their face-to-face time.

Working at August is not just another agency job. We are a group of people who really care about what we do, but who don’t take ourselves too seriously. As a result, it takes time to find the right people – but when we hire someone to join the team, we’re interested and invested in all the different parts that make up you – because ultimately, that’s what makes August.

As a team member, you can also expect:

Work experience at August

If you’ve landed on this page, you must be interested in work experience. That’s great. But if you’ve come straight here, perhaps go back and have a look around before reading further. Trust us, it will help. Why? Because before you apply, you need to understand what we’re about.

We are big advocates of learning and pushing yourself to be better. Work experience is valuable in the formative years of your career or as you’re nearing the end of high school. It gives you the opportunity – however brief – to be immersed in a company you admire, learn how the company operates, gain an insight into working life and meet people that could help influence your career.

Work experience placements at August are available in June each year.

We take work experience seriously. You’ll be assigned tasks that have a direct impact on the business. Whether it’s assisting with client projects, internal work or being part of team discussions – you’ll be doing much more than just filing or getting coffee.

With that in mind, opportunities here are rare. We don’t advertise, but we do welcome applications from people who push the boundaries with their application.

We want you to stand out. It doesn’t matter if you’ve never done work experience before. Show us why you’re different and why we simply shouldn’t say “no” to you.

Things to consider when approaching us about work experience:

  • If you submit online, follow up with a phone call.
  • If at first you don’t succeed, it’s okay to try again at a later date.
  • Be brave and make contact yourself – don’t ask someone else to call on your behalf.
  • Research interview etiquette and tips – it could just help you stand out.
  • Show us that you’ve learnt about August as a company and what we stand for.
  • Be creative in your approach to us.

Please note: Applications open April-May.
