User Interface Developer

We’re looking for the coder who loves to design, or the designer who loves to code. We need somebody who can create accessible front-end work across a variety of platforms.  

The Role

What exactly is a UI Developer? Well, ours balance strong front-end development skills with a keen eye for user-centered design. They can make complicated websites easy to use, design responsive sites and build them in HTML/CSS. In a nutshell, they:

  • Conceive and communicate visual and technical solutions to our projects - both internally and client-facing.
  • Design assets that can communicate the functionality of a website. This includes but not limited to: wireframes, mockups, style guides, etc.
  • Extend an existing design system, or create something fresh.
  • Work seamlessly with our back-end developers and the rest of the development team on projects of all sizes & scope.
  • Translate design mockups into flexible HTML and CSS to be used in the completed project.

The Chops

How much experience are we looking for? We’re not looking for any specific degrees or a certain number or years under your belt; talent is talent. Here’s some of what should describe you:

  • Comfortable working with designs in Sketch or Adobe CC
  • Loves web design and typography
  • Understands the connection between good design and user goals
  • Enjoys working on and with a team

  • Basic knowledge of source control (GIT).
  • Experienced in CSS pre-processing (SASS is our preference)
  • Some familiarity with javascript/jQuery
  • Experienced in working with content management systems

Bonus Points

Experience with agile methodologies is a plus, and we'd like to see some experience working in a team, and all the technologies that entail (source control, continuous integration and build deployment, etc.). A familiarity with building accessible websites is also a big plus.
