Agent: Ryan W.

Job #: 132773

Job Description

Our client is looking for a talented, self-motivated UI Developer to join an existing team to build the next generation of digital marketing products!

 

In this role, you would translate visual comps/mockups using HTML5, JavaScript (including jQuery), and Sass to build responsive web sites for our company and our partners (like CNET, TIME, and AutoGuide). This team takes ownership in the products developed, pays attention to details across a wide range of devices and collaborates efficiently!

Day-to-day, you’d be coding web projects, as well as helping with the optimization, testing, and debugging of our sites. The front-end tools of choice are Sass with Bourbon, and (of course) they version control our code (using Team Foundation Server, which is easy to learn). Creating great results are important, so you will validate designs and decisions using A-B testing methods, and validate work against multiple browsers and devices using BrowserStack. 

Other team members working on projects are using .NET (mostly), AngularJS (a wee bit), and WordPress (occasionally), so any familiarity with those things is helpful, but not necessary. 

In addition, if you have experience or interest in the following, the job may also include: 

  • HTML email coding 
  • Google Analytics 
  • Microdata formats 
  • SEO 


We’re looking for someone who has some professional experience doing web development work already and has some history of successfully developing responsive websites. We’re also looking for someone committed to keeping their knowledge up to date and bringing new tools and best practices to our workflow and toolset. 

Skills You Need!

  • Excellent working knowledge of HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript (including jQuery) 
  • Familiarity with Wordpress and PHP 
  • Familiarity and previous experience with the following: 
  • Sass 
  • Mobile-first responsive design patterns 
  • Modern web forms 
  • Attention to detail – both in the thoughtful structure of your code and when assessing final designs in the browser 


GREAT BENEFITS! 
 

 

If you feel you are a good fit, please send me a current resume and online Github or portfolio! rwest@vitamintalent.com
