Web Developer

This position is ideal for someone with a proficiency and interest in front-end web development, with a background and understanding in general web development. This is not a design position, but you should have a sensitivity to design details, aesthetics, and UX.

While you will be working with a development team, you should be able to develop and launch a simple WordPress site independently. Aside from the development team, you will also work closely with in-house design and project management team members.

Responsibilities

  • Collaborate with the team to understand client needs and deliver smart solutions.
  • Create clean HTML, CSS, and JS based on project specifications, wireframes, and design files (Sketch, Photoshop).
  • Build and test responsive, highly-customized open source CMS-managed websites (primarily WordPress).
  • Work from and contribute to flexible boilerplate themes.
  • Implement and/or extend plugins, modules, libraries, and APIs to customize display and functionality.
  • Test websites for cross-browser and cross-platform compatibility.
  • Learn new CMS, application, and eCommerce platforms as needed.
  • Work in a Mac environment using a code editor of your choice along with Git, Sketch, Adobe Creative Suite, Google Drive, and Open Office.
  • Continuously discover, filter, absorb, and share smart solutions with the team.
  • Other related responsibilities may be assigned as needed to help the company operate efficiently.

Specific skills

  • Strong web development portfolio demonstrating a working knowledge of clean and efficient coding practices, user experience, and attention to design detail.
  • Work independently or as part of a collaborative development team.
  • Quickly devise smart solutions to complex problems.
  • Interest in learning and evaluating innovative tools.
  • Strong written communication skills, including the ability to communicate clearly and efficiently with other team members, outside programmers, vendors, or clients.
  • Strong organizational time-management skills, including the ability to contribute to several concurrent projects and deadlines.
  • Extensive knowledge of HTML/CSS, accessibility guidelines, and SEO practices.
  • Familiarity with CSS-preprocessors (SASS, LESS).
  • Ability to implement/extend PHP and JavaScript (vanilla, jQuery).

Preferred skills, but not required for consideration

  • Industry experience as an agency web developer.
  • Experience implementing and working with open source CMS platforms.
  • Understanding of Git or another version control system (Subversion, CVS).
  • Familiar with newer JS frameworks (Vue.js, React, Angular).
  • Experience with web-hosting control panels (WHM/cPanel or other proprietary systems).
  • Associate’s or Bachelor’s Degree in a related subject area.
