  • Problem solve existing display or functional problems within an operating site
  • Work in an organized manner via email or a project tracker like Basecamp
  • Make technology recommendations when there’s a better way to do something
  • Communicate openly about availability and turnaround time

Requirements and Qualifications:

  • 2-3 years experience as a professional front-end web developer
  • Ability to work in a team environment, from making pixel perfect sites that meet the design requirements to integrating code with the back-end development team
  • Strong working knowledge of Photoshop; able to cutup comps from the design team
  • Create HTML5/CSS3/JQuery front-end code across a broad array of interactive web and mobile projects
  • Develop and test across multiple browsers, platforms, and devices, including smartphones and tablets
  • Master of WordPress and Magento theme creation
  • Master of PHP as it relates to front-end development and presentation
  • Experience using git for version management
  • Experience with recent Javascript frameworks including backbone.js, Ember and AngularJS
  • Knowledge of search engine optimization basics
  • Knowledge of client-side visualization libraries (highcharts, D3, etc.) a big plus
  • Experience with server-side development a plus (node.js, Ruby, Java/Scala)
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills
  • A few references we can call to assure us you're not one of those “crazy” developers.
