Ideal candidates should have concept-to-launch experience building scalable and secure transactional web applications.

As a senior JavaScript engineer you will be leading the design and construction of the interface interactivity of our clients’ sites through the masterful use of HTML, CSS, JavaScript and other related front-end technologies. You will lead small teams of talented engineers and collaborate with backend developers, information architects, business analysts and visual designers.

Our typical engagement size and the size of our teams makes it possible for all team members to craft and shape the experiences we produce, with the full support of the leads and directors.
