Our educational publishing client is looking for a mid-senior level Front End Developer for a long-term freelance assignment that is slated to last through the end of December 2012 (with the possibility to extend beyond that).

This role will sit onsite (offsite is NOT AN OPTION) to build, test, deploy and maintain front-end code for web pages and applications in HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript and jQuery. This role will also be responsible for leading projects, as well as acting as a mentor to the more junior developers on the team. The ideal candidates will be experts in HTML 4/5 and CSS 2/3 (90% of the role), as well as Javascript and jQuery (10% of the role), and have significant knowledge of Drupal. Experience with large enterprise software (from conception, to delivery and testing) is a must. This position will also interact closely with Project Management and the software engineers to shape project requirements and guide projects through completion.

Required Skills & Qualifications:
• Expert knowledge of HTML5 and CSS3
• Significant Javascript and jQuery knowledge
• 5+ years of professional experience in web development or a related field
• Ability to problem solve on a white board using hand-written pseudo-code (HTML, CSS, and JavaScript)
• Understanding of advanced HTML and CSS, and basic JavaScript functions without a computer for reference
• Experience creating several websites from scratch, with preference given to CMS driven sites (WordPress, Drupal, Joomla, SilverStripe, etc.)
• Knowledge of how to use and modify CSS frameworks like Blueprint, Bootstrap or Skeleton is a bonus!
• Mobile web and development on native platforms (iOS, Android) is another bonus!

Interested candidates please apply with examples of relevant experience. **Please note: An onsite-coding test will be required when interviewing for this role. Thanks!
