What is Plot?

Plot is a web system that allows for the swift production of gorgeous branded festival and event websites. It provides tools for our design team to create fully branded sites quickly and efficiently. It also provides a modern, progressive user interface for customers to manage their event website and ticketing.

Plot was conceived by the digital agency Project Simply. Over the past 10 years, we’ve worked on a vast array of music-focused websites, becoming industry specialists at designing and developing custom websites for music festivals and events. We’re a small team of music enthusiasts, looking to help support the industry we love.


Our benefits…

  • Salary package up to £55,000
  • Work from anywhere: Our office, your home, in a forest, on a beech, in a hole. Remote is the way.
  • Flexible hours: We’re a flexible team and your work week can be flexible to match.
  • Laptop provided: Everyone on our team is provided with the latest hot Macbook Pro for continued work from a place of your choice.
  • £250 home spend: Sort your screen out, your desk, a delightful keyboard, so you’re kitted out to work from home with all the right vibes
  • £1,000/year for personal development: Anything to do with your personal development, from event attendance, new courses, to meditation and mental health support.
  • Birthdays and Christmas off: You should celebrate your birthdays with a big cake rather than by coding. Or you could code if you want, it’s up to you.


The opportunity…

Our Plot system has been in commercial Beta since 2020 and we’re now ready to begin creating the new Plot system from scratch. You’ll be heading our primary full stack developer on the system, supported by a team of designers and front-end developers. Plot is designed to rapidly scale, and there will be many opportunities for advancement as the team expands.

You will report directly to our Head of Teach and assist them with managing the workflow, roadmaps and project tracking of our full-stack web development processes.
