Front-End Web Developer (JS/CSS/HTML)

 

Growing digital agency seeking meticulous front-end developer with a keen design sense, for a part-time role intended to transition to full-time within 3 months. We’re looking for someone with exceptional coding skills and up-to-the-minute knowledge of web standards, who also has a natural instinct for design.

You’ll:

  • Help bring UI/UX wireframes to life through efficient code, bridging the gap between visual design and technical implementation

  • Work on a variety of different projects. In the span of a week, you may work on a custom-built Google Maps API integration with location search and filtering, produce a jQuery-based resource library with ecommerce-like filters, deploy live chat features, conduct an accessibility audit, and work on micro-interaction animations

  • Attend conference calls with clients

  • Document back-end features

  • Support retainer clients by deploying enhancements, conducting A/B tests, keeping features up-to-date, demolishing bugs, and answering technical questions

  • Conduct cross-browser and cross-device testing and optimization

  • Work at least part of the time out of our offices in Dumbo

You:

  • Have a solid foundation in modern, responsive front-end development.

  • Are fluent in HTML, CSS, jQuery, Javascript, and WordPress.

  • Are meticulous and resourceful. Detail-orientation is highly important to ensuring the work we deliver feels tight and pixel-perfect.

  • Can communicate articulately with clients, helping us demonstrate an understanding of their objectives and concerns while properly setting expectations. This often means having the empathy to see things from our clients’ perspectives, even when it may mitigate your vision.

  • Ideally, you have at least a basic understanding of the growth hacking spectrum (SEO, conversion optimization, inbound marketing, email marketing, lead acquisition…).

We:

  • Care for each other and strive to cultivate an environment that encourages the open celebration of ideas.

  • Are a small team focused on helping our clients (mostly companies committed to dramatic social impact) design experiences, tell their stories, and build platforms for growth. We create websites, applications, animations and visualizations, and brand systems.

  • Are largely referral-based, due to the high-level of communication, ideation, and execution we bring to our engagements. Our clients are happy and come back to us often.

  • Look for projects that present an opportunity to significantly improve the way our clients better the world. We constantly want to do bigger, cooler, more impactful work.

  • Hold ourselves to a zero tolerance policy for mediocrity.

  • Run a highly entrepreneurial shop, with lots of room for ideas and everyone expected to take ownership.

  • Are headquartered in Dumbo, Brooklyn - steps from Brooklyn Bridge Park, one short subway stop from downtown Manhattan, and right next to the best views of New York City around.
