Our growing UX and web team is looking for a front-end web developer/designer to help us build top-tier, industry leading websites for our marketing team.

Working as part of a multi-disciplinary team developing a suite of web sites in Drupal 8 doing primarily front-end development including building content types, custom blocks, twig templates, styling with css using Sass and light jQuery scripting.

This job bridges design and development, but your focus will primarily be HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and content management system (CMS) installation, configuration, and customization.

You will create templates and prototypes at the beginning of development while working with content experts, designers, and developers to complete the implementation and launch.

You'll enjoy a team-oriented, casual atmosphere conducive to maximizing your potential but must be comfortable discussing and contributing ideas at any stage of the process.

What You'll Be Doing:

  • Communicating ideas clearly to your team
  • Collaborating with a talented team of developers and designers
  • Quickly learning and adapting to new tools
  • Working in an agile environment, where we iterate quickly
  • The successful candidate should be motivated to combine the art of design with the art of programming and will need to be able to translate flat design files to clean, accessible user experiences
  • Care about modern best practices, including code reviews, continuous integration and deployment, and iterative development
  • Enjoy working with others in our collaborative environment that balances team-wide communication (e.g., daily standups, Slack discussions, code review), occasional pair programming sessions, and frequent blocks of focused, uninterrupted time for independent work
What You Need For This Position:
  • 3+ years experience developing for the web — in-house or agency
  • Object-oriented jQuery and Vanilla Javascript
  • Excellent standards-based web technology skills (including HTML5, CSS3, and Javascript)
  • Solid understanding of designing intuitive site functionality, interaction, site architecture, user interfaces, and navigation
  • Experience with SASS, SCSS or LESS
  • Experience with preprocessors like Gulp, Grunt, and Webpack
  • CMS experience — preferably Drupal
  • Familiarity with common front-end frameworks like Bootstrap or Foundation
  • Experience with Git and Github
  • Strong experience using tools such as Illustrator, Photoshop, Sketch, etc.
  • Experience working effectively with a team of developers and designers
  • Strong experience with responsive design, including responsive grids and images
  • Demonstrated ability to implement one-off projects quickly while keeping long-term projects on schedule
  • Rapid development/prototyping of front-end XHTML/CSS/JS
  • Proficiency solving cross-browser issues
  • Thorough understanding of responsive web design technique.
  • Find joy in building smart interfaces from comps and wireframes
  • Experience working effectively with a team of developers and designers
  • A solid understanding of designing intuitive site functionality, interaction, site architecture, user interfaces, and navigation.
Other Desirable Experience
