Job Description

We are looking for a Front-End Web Developer who is excited to take a client approved design prototype into the reality of a functional website. During the coding process, our developers work closely with Art Directors to finalize the concept into a beautiful finished custom website. You will be responsible for developing and integrating HTML, SCSS, and Javascript into our proprietary CMS. Project Managers handle our client relationships, so you won’t ever speak directly with a client. However, being able to ask the Project Manager appropriate forward thinking questions is helpful in launching sites efficiently.
 
Responsibilities
  • Code and Integrate HTML/CSS/JS for custom designs on CMS
  • Maintain existing web designs
  • Report design QA issues
  • Project time estimations
  • Code HTML/CSS to complete small coding projects
Skills and Qualifications
  • Proficient understanding of web markup, including HTML5, CSS3
  • Proficient understanding of client-side scripting and JavaScript frameworks, including jQuery
  • Proficient understanding of cross-browser compatibility issues and ways to work around them.
  • Basic understanding of versioning tools, such as Git
  • Basic understanding of CSS pre-processors, such as SASS
  • Basic knowledge of Sketch and Invision
  • Basic knowledge of image authoring tools, to be able to crop, resize, or perform small adjustments on an image. Familiarity with tools such as Photoshop is a plus
  • Knowledge of templating language such as Twig is a plus
  • Experience with a task runner, like Grunt or Gulp is a plus
  • 1-2 years experience in web development required, no formal degree necessary

Compensation and Benefits

  • Salary—We recognize that our people are our greatest asset. We reward candidates who wow us by offering competitive pay.
  • Vacation—Paid holidays are a no brainer, but how does unlimited, paid vacation sound? Salaried employees of Firespring are encouraged to take what they need when it comes to time off in order to live their best and healthiest lives.
  • 401(k)—Your parents preached about the importance of saving. Now we’re helping you get it done. Firespring provides professional financial advisors who will help you make a plan and guide your investments.
  • Fun—Millions of people go to work, punch the clock from 8 to 5 and hate every moment of it. That’s not the case here. We have an indoor slide, a game room and a group of people dedicated to creating activities and fun inside and outside the office. To put it mildly, we’re serious about having fun—and it reflects in our work too. 
  • Giving back—When your employer makes it possible for you to give back to your community on the clock? Win for everyone. Every Firespring team member gets one paid day off each month to give back to the community in any way they’d like.
  • Miscellaneous Benefits—Not all benefits are about the Benjamins, baby. Some of the things you’ll enjoy while working here include unlimited soft drinks, tea and beer. And don’t worry about your duds—business-casual is the dress code here. Still looking to make your cubicle-shackled friends jealous of your new gig? Our company-wide social and recreational activities are sure to do just that.
