Job IntroductionWhoever said email
is dead was wrong. In fact, a lot of our customers tell us it’s their preferred
method of communication. So we’re looking for a developer to design, build and
test HTML emails our customers will continue to love.  Main ResponsibilitiesThis is a great
opportunity to work with industry-leading experts, who understand there’s more
to email design and development than converting offline to online. You’ll be creating
code that’s clean, compliant and follows industry best practice, and building
fully responsive emails that render across multiple email clients and devices. As part of a busy
team you’ll contribute to campaigns and projects that support the wider Commercial/Marketing
departments. Cross-team working will become part of your routine. You’ll work
with colleagues from technical and non-technical backgrounds who are friendly,
supportive and keen to help you learn about the business and show you how your
roles connect. Although most days
you’ll be immersed in email, you’ll be contributing in other areas too. Some
days you’ll be presenting work, and others you’ll be working with colleagues to
measure the success and impact of our emails to ensure our objectives are met. Market conditions
change quickly in financial services, so be prepared to react to adhoc
requirements that need a quick turnaround. And you’ll h
ave your finger on the
pulse of all things email, knowing what’s hot and what’s not, keeping up with
emerging trends.Ideal CandidateTechnical skills
are a must for this role, but curiosity’s essential too. You’ll be interested
in the what, the why and the how, with the ability to strike a balance between what’s
realistic and achievable.Ideally you’ll
understand the restrictions associated with financial services - recognising
when it’s time to be creative and when it’s time to hold back. You won’t be afraid
to talk or challenge, and you’ll be good at listening too.Experience as an
email developer, front-end digital developer or web designer is a pre-requisite
for this role. Other essentials include:- Proven working
experience of email design and development for fully responsive emails
compatible with different email clients and mobile devices - Email design
techniques and standards, including creative design - Email testing
techniques, frameworks and tools (Litmus or Email on Acid). - Strong understanding
of web technologies used for development and testing of emails XHTML, CSS2 and 3, HTML
4 and 5 - Proficient use of Adobe
Creative Suite to create optimised digital assets and prototypes - Performance and
analytics evaluation, implementation and reporting - UI Design techniques
industry best practise and standards - Experience of working successfully
