Job Description

We’re looking for a Full Stack Developer with front and back-end skills who have experience using both vanilla javascript and React. We leverage Craft CMS for a majority of our projects so knowledge of back-end frameworks like Laravel or Yii are a huge plus. In addition to front-end technologies, we also expect you to have a strong grasp on writing semantic and accessible HTML and CSS or SASS following BEM guidelines.

More important than your specific technical skills is that you’re a strong problem solver who loves to learn — we’re not experts in everything and we don’t expect you to be either. We’re all just makers and innovators, so as long as you love to build awesome experiences you’ll fit right in. Our ideal candidates should have 3+ years of proven industry experience.
