Front-End Developer

Website Yoko

Interactive marketing firm

Overview

We’re looking for a front-end web developer to join our team. More specifically, we’re looking for someone who is comfortable taking design mockups and replicating them with code. Often, this code is in the form of a custom WordPress theme.

You’ll be working closely with our production team, including design staff and developers, to build cool stuff for our clients. Speaking of clients, most of ours are companies, organizations and people who we feel are making a positive impact in the world. So if you’re interested in doing rewarding work that you can be proud of, we just might be the right place for you.

Responsibilities

  • Develop new user-facing layouts and features
  • Build reusable code and libraries for future use
  • Ensure the technical feasibility of UI/UX designs
  • Optimize code for maximum speed and scalability
  • Collaborate with other team members
  • Provide strategic recommendations for design implementation

Requirements

  • Strong skills with HTML5 and CSS3
  • Functional knowledge of Javascript/jQuery and LESS
  • Experience working with responsive frameworks, like Bootstrap or Foundation
  • The ability to build custom WordPress themes and strong familiarity with concepts such as custom post types and custom fields
  • A general understanding of SEO
  • Familiarity with Photoshop and Adobe Creative Cloud

Ideally, you’ll also have a decent aesthetic eye and be comfortable elaborating on design concepts, style tiles, and general branding to create derivative layouts and interface elements without explicit design instruction.

Benefits

  • Flexible work schedule
  • Medical benefits
  • Option to telecommute as you’d like
  • Great pay
  • Unlimited leave
  • Participation in our annual shutdown (two, sometimes more, weeks off at the end of the year) and most federal holidays.
