Front End Developer

0 people like this description

Looking for a front end developer to join a web marketing firm in downtown Richmond...Company specializes in web design, custom ExpressionEngine development, and internet marketing.

About you:

-You know how to develop with a CMS. ExpressionEngine is the only CMS we use, so you'll need to know how to set up large websites, know modules and extensions well enough to find the right one for the job or develop your own. Bonus points if you have 1+ years experience with ExpressionEngine, but you have to be willing to learn it quickly. You probably know how to cobble together some PHP code, too.

-You rock responsive design. Most of our websites involve responsive coding for all screen sizes, so media queries are your friend. You can develop responsively without a framework too, because you're good like that. Needless to say, you have a thorough understanding of HTML5, Jquery, and CSS3, and you know enough about Photoshop to use it to slice a design.

-You're passionate about the details. You know that clients expect websites that work, and you're willing to thoroughly test your work for proper functioning and on a plethora of browsers and mobile devices. You take it personally when a client finds an error on a website you developed (that doesn't happen to you, right?). Being well-rounded, you also know enough about website usability to know what to do and what not to do. You also want to build code that is lightweight.
-You're a creative thinker. You understand that development is not just about logic. Sometimes, you have to find a few different creative solutions to a problem.
-You communicate well. You have a knack for explaining complex development tasks in words people can understand. You understand that not everyone knows what "that acronym" means, so you can discuss your work without using buzzwords. You also like being with people, you have a positive attitude, and you keep everyone updated with where you are on different projects.
-You're self-motivated and accountable for your work. You find it refreshing to juggle different projects and work closely with the team under tight but reasonable deadlines. You don't need a project manager standing over your shoulder -- you can stay on-schedule and on-budget without much management.
-You want to be a key member of a team. You understand that we all rely on each other to get work done and do it well. You want to join a small, nimble, award-winning group of people that values your work and the passion you have for it.

Job responsibilities:

-Code web designs that a web designer creates, including helping to determine UI details like interactivity features.
-Work with a web designer to determine the layout and function of mobile versions of websites.
-Work with a web designer and a web content specialist to code ExpressionEngine templates, forms and functionality. This includes collaborating with the content specialist to determine what should be an EE channel or static content, developing content functionality, etc.
-Perform website functional testing and browser testing.
-Proposing new solutions for existing websites when a client wants to add functionality or content.
-Develop lightweight documentation for websites as a reference for internal uses and for clients.
