Front End Developer

Who said coders and not artist? Sketching is undoubtedly an integral part in the initial creation process of interactive pieces.  Traditionally, a pencil and piece of paper was all that was (thought to be) needed to create quick and dirty mock-ups.  But as of recent, there’s been a bit of debate over which is more effective: paper and pencil or text editor and code.  Both provide an empty canvas waiting to be painted with the next viral YouTube video campaign, microsite layout or iPhone web application design.

As a senior front-end web developer, you should be able to sketch with code.  One of the inherent benefits of sketching with code is the ease of transformation into a functional prototype. You will be working in a fast-paced, highly skilled team environment and will be responsible for producing browser-based software solutions to realize website design, Social Media API's and interface concepts. You have a solid understanding of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, and are always looking for the best way to do something. Berners-Lee, Cederholm, Zeldman, Shea, and Meyers are prophets.
