Job Description:

Our Client is seeking a Front End Developer/Designer to join their team. 

We’re looking for designers who are motivated to create compassionate, inclusive, usable, and elegant experiences that help people achieve their financial goals and feel confident about their future. 
The Expertise We’re Looking For 
• An undergraduate or graduate degree is preferred, but we would also consider people with a certificate in user experience design. We believe great designers can come from many different disciplines. 
• A demonstrated ability to design and build digital experiences is strongly preferred. These digital experiences might be personal, for school, or professional. We are particularly interested in people with native mobile or responsive design experience. 
• A digital portfolio we can review

You’ll tackle the stickiest problems on the web: 

- Piles of data that need to be laid out and explained to international audiences with varying financial backgrounds and life stages. 
- Working across multiple back-end systems to enhance financial decision making. 
 Joining cutting-edge technologies with more, um… “legacy” systems.
- Figuring out when to apply a componentized design system, recognizing when a component needs to be modified or created. 

Sure, the job is mainly coding, but you’ll make design decisions as part of the team. You’ll work alongside visual designers, researchers, content strategists, and business partners. Oh, and there’s a network of developers here who will work with you and help you grow. 

Tools and skills you need: 

- Modern web development best practices.

-You need to really know HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript, Object-Oriented JS, GIT, Responsive Web Design because you’ll use them every day. 
SCSS is important too, but we can help you there. 

- We use Grunt, but experience with other build tools (eg. Webpack, Make, Gulp) will work. 

-You will be working with a team using Sketch, so you need to be comfortable with image editing or prototyping software. 

- Obviously, you need to follow accessibility guidelines and web technology standards using W3C or WHATWG compliance. 

- Getting along with people – it’s a coding position, but you’ll be working with a team. 

Brownie points (and brownies for breakfast) if you know: 

Agile Methodology 
Bash, scripting 
Web security and performance techniques 
Intermediate knowledge of modern JavaScript frameworks. (We mainly use Angular.)
