Front End Web Developer

at frog design (New York, NY, USA) Full Time Thursday, November 18th, 2010

Job Description:

These are the words of the hiring manager, unadulterated by passing through HR/Recruiting…

What I would love to have is someone who is passionate about front-end development and has a good eye for design. Someone who thinks they are incredibly good at HTML/CSS, but realizes there are always more things to learn and is eager to do so. They should be constantly devouring new information and techniques from the community and should stay on the cutting edge of advances in the technology.

They should be fairly strong at javascript development, with a good understanding of working with libraries (jQuery) but also knowing how to reproduce similar results without the use of a library if necessary. The ideal person would always be looking at Flash development and envisioning a way to quickly reproduce it in javascript as an alternative.

This person should always be conscious of accessibility when developing, and is cautious to always develop using unobtrusive code with plenty of fallbacks for older browsers and platforms. A thorough understanding of Section 508 guidelines should be a given, but experience working with WCAG guidelines would be a plus.

It would be ideal if the person has experience working with server-side languages, especially PHP, but it is not a requirement. Any experience working with content management systems like Drupal or WordPress would be a plus.

There are a bunch of other technology acronyms that we could throw at someone, but this is the core of what I’m hoping to find.

Above all else, this is a role that is going to have client interactivity, so we would need someone that has excellent communication skills and is capable of working with a large team. Someone who thinks putting in the extra effort to make sure things are as close to perfect as possible and is constantly looking for new ways to improve and exce is the only way to operatel. A go-getter, for lack of a better word.

I know I’m probably asking for a lot, but the gist of it is that I want someone who almost considers themselves more of a designer or creative than a developer and I want them to really care about the quality of work that they produce. Someone with a bit of ambition, who can analyze designs and can efficiently communicate their work.
