Front End Developer, Mid

The Challenge:

Are you passionate about crafting an amazing user experience? The right interface can make systems easy to use, encourage early adoption, and save time and resources. We’re looking for you, a front-end developer who will use equal parts skill and vision to build an experience that delivers functionality and efficiency. 

This position is for a mid to senior Frontend Software Engineer, which is distinct from Web designer in that this role has a primary focus on data handling and client architecture. A successful candidate will have a strong focus on leveraging the full client-side stack - JS, CSS, and HTML/SVG - to transform complex raw data structures into Web standards-compliant presentational elements. The candidate will work closely with UX designers to understand the application’s expected behavior in a variety of situations, as well as with API developers to coordinate data services that support UX designs in a scalable manner. The candidate will also support an agile development approach and be required to work with external clients, project managers, and junior developers.

Empower change with us.
