Front End Developer

We’re looking for a Front End Developer with an innate sense of design thinking. This position’s about much more than developing websites.

  • You have experience as a front end developer, and specifically agency or client-facing experience is required.
  • You instinctively think ahead, adapt, and quickly problem solve, all while keeping your cool.
  • You have the ability to remain flexible, iterate, and prioritize on a daily basis.
  • You have experience developing complex CMS-based websites (we use CraftCMS)
  • You are extremely familiar with modern frontend technologies (CSS, Javascript).
  • You have an understanding of web servers and ability to deploy code using Github.
  • Exceptional ability to translate designs into semantic, accessible front-end code.
  • Strong understanding of modern web technologies and workflows.
  • Strong understanding of mobile & responsive design & development practices.
  • Solid understanding of GitHub/Version Control.
  • Solid understanding and appreciation for color, typography, and composition.
  • Ability to work directly with designers to implement designs and provide design feedback if necessary.
  • Ability to defend and explain your technical recommendations to other team members, Creative Director, and clients.
  • You relish the ability to be involved with a project from start to finish.
  • Able to work within a clear and consistent workflow and process.
  • Must be open to changes in approach to coding that follow new and evolving standards that will be developed with team input and discussion.
  • Enjoy working within a fast paced hybrid agile sprint cycle where new work and iterations to previous work is presented to the client on a weekly basis.
  • You enjoy learning quickly and diving deep into each client’s world to understand their market space, how they function within it, and how we can help them meet their goals.
  • Bonus points for integrating with third party API’s, and developing plug-ins to extend base CMS functionality.
