Are you an experienced Umbraco Developer who gets excited about building quality solutions?

We are currently looking for a .NET developer with experience with Umbraco CMS, who will complement our current team of talented developers. We have offices in Bristol, Lancaster, and London, and will consider remote working for the right candidate.

About us

We’re Reading Room, an award-winning digital consultancy. For over 20 years we’ve been helping businesses solve problems and unlock value for their users.

One standout thread flows through all our work: we deliver bespoke digital solutions that focus on how people experience technology; and bridge the gap between strategic, design, and technical thinking.

We’re not afraid to challenge conventional thinking and we’re well known for our candid, jargon-free approach to delivery.

Our culture is built on trust, collaboration, optimism, inclusivity, and diversity.

Our work adheres closely to the principles of user-centric design; and delivers client work using agile processes, and in-depth discovery.

With a forward-thinking mindset, Reading Room has thrived amongst the chaos of an ever-shifting digital landscape – winning industry accolades and attracting ambitious clients to be part of that journey.

We’re now fiercely proud to be part of the independently owned Fat Media Group. The group consists of three independently run businesses – Ronin, an international research agency, Reading Room, a UK-wide consultancy dealing with larger or more complex digital requirements, and Fat Media, a traditional full-service agency based in the North West, focused on aspiring SMEs.

The Reading Room client base is impressive and includes well-known organisations spanning: central Government, blue light services, public and private healthcare, membership, not-for-profit, charity, and construction… to name a few. In recent times, as many agencies have contracted, we’ve seen an uplift in demand and requirement for our specialist services – with a number of new clients joining our growing family.
