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.

Technical Lead (Basingstoke)

Job Description

DotLabel is an award winning Creative Digital Agency with a team of superhuman developers, with our combined powers we have attracted some of the most recognisable UK & Global brands, including Barclays, The Balvenie, SDL, Glenfiddich, BAE Systems and Rackspace.

We’re seeking a very special superhero to lead our development teams. We currently develop upon PHP/Symfony2/Doctrine but we’re always open to fresh ideas and new/alternative approaches; 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/ with some Node and Express thrown in for good measure.

Day to day the role is hands on, whilst leading both the front and backend development teams, with a strong focus on the backend team. Super human technical expertise will be called upon at any moment by the account and project teams to help assist with their enquires. The role is client facing, so regular interactions with big brands will play a key part too.

Benefits include: Health Insurance, 24 days holiday, bonus scheme, regular team BBQs and events, opportunity to attend conferences and training. Plus nobody likes working over Christmas, so we shut down the office between Christmas and the New Year.

The position is based in our Basingstoke office, within walking distance of the London mainline station and a 5-minute drive from the M3 motorway. No need to worry about boring lunchtimes either, Festival Place and all it’s eateries are just a 5-minute walk away.

If you can fly, then please apply!

Desired Skills & Experience

  • Create and execute development plans and revises as appropriate to meet changing needs and requirements.
  • Keep project manager(s) well informed of status of development effort and serve as liaison between development staff and project manager.
  • Ensure both technical and front-end teams are contributing to our code library and that the teams reuse code from the library where necessary.
  • Own the development lifecycle and be responsible for managing technical risks throughout the project.
  • Communicate and enforce coding standards.
  • Perform code reviews and mentor junior developers.
  • Manage technical resources within budget and project schedule.
  • Consistently deliver high-quality services to our clients.
  • Create extend-able, scalable and maintainable code.
  • Understand the benefits of the various programming languages.
  • Familiar with source control principles and comfortable with Git/BitBucket/Jira.
  • Linux Usage & server admin.
  • HTML5/JS/CSS3.
  • Angular.JS, Ember.JS, Node.JS or similar.
  • Web Security, SQL Injection
  • A habit of thorough testing and retesting of own work and assisting others to debug issues.
  • Create and maintain technical documentation for assigned development.

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/ 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 We will contact you swiftly.

We understand there is some effort in the above, we appreciate you undertaking it, and will respond to all applicants.
