We’re a friendly bunch who care deeply and passionately about technology. We understand our greatest asset are the people behind what we make - that’s why we’ve worked hard to build a team of the best.
Bliss is based in Manchester, the Northern Powerhouse and rising tech city! We love open source and help our customers embrace the right technology choices free of pesky licences. Our customers work with us because they want to, not because technology forces them to.
Our team consists of developers, designers, and digital marketing experts. Each specialise in their own area, but also possess a holistic understanding of what our agency does as a whole, leading to more connected, considerate thinking
We’re sustainable…in that we try to make engaged decisions about what we buy, where we buy it from, and how we use it. That goes for energy, paper and stationary, cleaning supplies, tea and coffee. Naturally we recycle, and we encourage our staff to cycle to work by providing discounted bikes and equipment to the team; over half of which regularly cycle in.
And you are?
You’re the type of person who can admit there’s always more to learn, and more to improve. You’re a thoughtful individual who cares about their teammates and knows when to be supportive. You know what you’re doing and aren’t afraid to say what needs to be done.
As an accomplished PHP developer, you’ll have a taste for agency life. You'll have used CMS’s such as Wordpress or Drupal or frameworks like Symfony or Laravel. You'll understand the importance of keeping code well organised and code readability will be a minor obsession.
Although the focus of this role will be PHP, there will be plenty of opportunity to get involved in other technologies and projects. As such, anything else you can bring to the table will help your application. Here are a few things we play with on a daily basis:

You'll enjoy agency life - the camaraderie, the opportunity to try new technology, and the variety of customer and project. This is a role for an individual that wants to be able to make a big contribution to a small business, and be rewarded for success.
In addition to client project work, this role will come with the opportunity to create and develop agency products, so you'll need to be creative and insightful.
Where is the job based?
We're looking for someone to work from our Manchester office.
Is this full time?
Yes, we’ll expect someone who can give us 37.5 hours a week.
How much experience do I need?
We want someone who can hit the ground running, so ideally 4 years commercial experience. At least part of this should be agency-based.
What does the role pay?
Up to £40k per year.
What are the benefits of working at Bliss?
There's plenty to love about working at Bliss. Here's our current lineup of offerings:
We’re also committed to valuing diversity, and seek to provide all staff with the opportunity for employment and personal development on the basis of ability, qualifications, suitability, and potential. We tolerate no direct or indirect discrimination or harassment, and we encourage our team in their daily actions, decisions and behaviour to endeavour to promote these concepts.
What a difference a decade makes
In January we’ll be celebrating our 10 year anniversary! It’s been such an amazing journey starting out in the trendy Northern Quarter of Manchester but every year has been full of profit and success and so we eventually outgrew those humble beginnings. We hope you’ll join us in our continuing growth from our new, even trendier offices right in the heart of Manchester Piccadilly!
