Front End Engineer (Javascript, CSS, HTML)

< Previous Job Next Job >

Description

* Our Client is looking for a Front End Engineer whose skills include constructing solid cross browser, scalable and flexible UI code for web applications using CSS, HTML and JavaScript. Passion, deep understanding of front end technologies, and raw smarts are what matter here; years of experience are much less important. Our front-end applications allow for efficient buying and selling of online advertising inventory. The challenge lies in giving advertisers and publishers the flexibility they need to custom-tailor ad campaigns, all while keeping the UI uncluttered and intuitive even to non-technical people. If you know how to write javascript that is blazing fast and reusable, if you obsess over both page generation and page rendering times, and if you are the best at what you do and interested in working with one of the smartest engineering teams in the city, you should already be working here.

The position requires a problem solving mindset as much as it requires web development skills. The ideal candidate is hands-on when designing applications and is comfortable coding off of not only formal specs but also off of problem statements. We release new code every day (as continuous deployment actually increases reliability), so you must be both fast and accurate with your code and confident in your work. You'll immediately see the results of your work and creativity ? as will the rest of our team, our clients, and the world at large.

Requirements:

Expert level knowledge of JavaScript, AJAX with JSON, object oriented programming
Experience working with popular JS Libraries (jQuery preferred)
Knowledgeable of best practices (and design patterns) regarding JavaScript development.
Strong working knowledge of HTML, especially adept at cross browser CSS and semantic markup
Proven experience writing fast, scalable code
Experience working with UI templating solutions in another language
Knowledge of cross-browser limitations and workarounds


Why Our Client?

If you're driven, smart, and dynamic, and want to work with other people who fit that same description, look no further. Our team, including our senior leadership, is composed of some of the most respected people in the industry. Our passion for our work carries into our hobbies, ranging from fashion design to break-dancing to sailing. It seems to be no accident that we were named one of the Top 100 Private companies on the East Coast (AlwaysOn), as well as one of New York City's 10 Hottest Tech Startups (amNY). We're well funded. If you think you can keep up, don't worry if you've missed a few bullet points. We want to talk to you.
