Creative Catering - Design & Development

Exceptional catering and events provider, The Creative Catering Company, approached DotLabel for a full site revamp. The key aim of the website was to reflect their luxurious brand and highlight their remarkable event hosting skills.

Developed on DotLabel’s own Content Management System using Symfony 2, an open-source PHP development framework, the site was transformed into a beautifully contemporary space in order for the client’s work to really shine through. Enhanced by stunning, crisp photography, the new website provides a much smoother user experience and is fully responsive across different devices; ensuring customers can easily access the site on-the-go.

Web Developers

Help us Play!

We are on the lookout for some shiny web developers to be based in our wonderful Edinburgh office. Positions are available across a range of levels from very junior to the 'better than us' heavyweights.

We develop extensively upon PHP/Symfony2/Doctrine; while the blur between client and server side means we also love our JavaScript development and hit the usual toolchain of HTML5/Bower/Grunt/AngularJS/Socket.io/Cordova, with some Node and Express thrown in for good measure.

Our customers, and the environment, like us to squeeze performance where possible by utilising tools like ESI/Varnish,New Relic; our test coverage is steadily increasing which means our continuous inspection server complaints are are steadily decreasing.

Salaries are dependant on the individual but they are always favourable and regularly reviewed. The geeky side of DotLabel berate their keyboards, just off the bypass, surrounded by greenary at the start of the Pentland hills just outside Edinburgh; should you enjoy skiing, golf, climbing or just eating lunch outside then you will find our location is as chilled as our developers (apart from on launch days).

How to Apply

To get us excited you will need to:

  1. Include your response to the developer exercise
  2. Complete the short applicant questionnaire
  3. Update and polish your CV
  4. Send all of above, completed, to recruitment@dotlabel.co.uk. We will contact you swiftly.
