Job Description

We are seeking talented and passionate developers to create engaging custom user experiences across all devices and screens. You must be willing to lead. 

Who you are

Ideally, you are a multitalented wunderkind who runs circles around each of the below bullet points, but let’s be real: while some of these are “must-have”, many are “wish-list”. We may have gotten a bit carried away with these, so if feel your unique combination of skills is close-ish to the mark, don’t hesitate to reach out. In fact, do so enthusiastically.

  • *’ve got a “roll up your sleeves” mentality -- there’s a lot of nitty gritty work to get done.

    * … you have “X years of experience” Pshaw. We aren’t big on formal requirements in the credentials department; rather, we want to see what you’ve worked on. Show us a project you’re proud of that you shipped and we’ll start the conversation from there.

    * … you have excellent design sensibilities and a firm grasp of HTML5 / CSS / SASS, ui toolkits like bootstrap, and probably design tools like Sketch

    * … you’re opinionated about your design choices and can easily articulate/defend your design decisions/rationale when asked “Why did you ?”

    * … you have solid React, React Native, or AngularJS front-end development chops. But, because you love javascript frameworks in general, you’ve played around with -- and probably are opinionated about -- other frameworks like Ruby, Django, Aurelia, Ember, etc.

    * should be able to design, architect & implement front-end solutions that reflect your particular problem-solving approach

    * … you’re a natural Design Thinker.

    * … you enjoy putting on your Customer Hat and being on a first-name basis with our most passionate users

    * … you know Git and how to “Git things done” :)
