Job Description:
We design and build custom websites for companies, colleges, publications, and organizations all across the Midwest. We put a great deal of thought and effort into each website that we make, so that they’re easy to use and easy to find.

We believe in thoughtful user experiences, detail-oriented designs and impeccably clean code. If you enjoy solving big problems, working in small teams and growing yourself as a web professional – then we want to talk to you.

What You’ll Be Doing

You should have an insatiable appetite for learning new things and improving upon existing ones. Typically, you’ll find yourself working on a variety of web-related projects, informing our designers on what is technically possible and developing elegant solutions that will fix our client’s problems.

Teamwork is very important to us. Getting your work done on time and with the highest of quality standards is essential so that we all succeed.

We expect you to rise to challenges you haven’t faced before and be comfortable asking for help when you really need it.

If you’re the right one for us, then you pay attention to the tiniest of details, adhere to strict coding standards, meet your milestones and take great pride in your work.

Besides having all these other great qualities, you must be able to code well structured HTML/CSS, Javascript and PHP. We also expect you to know how to setup and manage MYSQL databases for WordPress installations.

Although not required, you should be comfortable working with HAML, SASS and LESS. Admittedly, these are fairly new programming languages, however if you’re the one we’re looking for, learning new programming languages is something you do with ease anyway.

Standards advocate – You excel at building modern non-table based interfaces using semantic markup and CSS for layout.

DOM disciple – You understand how your HTML & CSS affects JavaScript.
JavaScript guru – You know the bulk of the JavaScript language inside and out including some of the intricacies of popular libraries like jQuery
Passionate – When building something cool, you forget what time it is and you can’t wait for the next challenge.
Pragmatic – Support for older browsers is still a reality, know how to deal with the challenges of that while still being innovative.

Web front-end programming (HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript, Wordpress).
Creating custom content management systems and implementing existing ones like WordPress and ExpressionEngine.
Excellent writing and communication skills.
Photoshop skills are a plus.
Coding for responsive design is a plus.
