Job Description

Senior Front End Developer needed ASAP. First and foremost is to have strong knowledge of HTML/CSS. Ideally a full stack developer with knowledge of Angular.

Looking for a talented and passionate web developer to join our project team. The project is an enterprise buildout of a next-generation digital asset management system to store, manage, and distribute files to users worldwide. Everyone from our interns to the VPs work in an open office environment with standing desks and a lot of communication and interaction.

The system utilizes AngularJS for its front-end and is a single-page application communicating with a Ruby on Rails API on top of Postgres and Elasticsearch. These are also multiple Ruby back-end services utilizing a mixture of polling and event-driven architectures. The entire infrastructure is hosted in Amazon Web Services (AWS) and is managed with Chef and Opsworks.

The team runs using agile methodologies and our processes are constantly adapting to changing needs. Pair programming is encouraged and test-driven development is the default. Stories are reviewed and pointed as a team. Continuous integration and deployment are entirely automated.

We need someone who is opinionated about CSS usage and code organization. Someone who wants to own and manage that area of our code base. Having an eye for responsive design and having been in the browser compatibility trenches would help as well.
