Our client is looking for a Developer to help build out solutions to drive our dynamic & interactive client Web sites.
A cool individual who loves but is not owned by the code. Someone who can drop lines of code like it’s their native tongue but still talk to our crew comfortably and sometimes even the odd client.
We consider ourselves a laid back bunch, but driven to do good for our customers. We’re looking for low egos, and high skills. We don’t expect you to have 10 years experience, we expect you to have clean coding ability, and the willingness to learn. We love a young, fresh genius looking to get some top level work experience under his or her belt.
Below is some important stuff. These are some of the things you’d be doing and the skills you possess. If you’re not an exact match, but what you see throughout entices you, send us your resume.
The Developer is responsible for:
-Producing high quality work adhering to standards and following the production process
-Working independently on multiple smaller tasks or larger builds with shifting priorities and tight deadlines
-Adhering to and providing accurate estimates for the amount of time required to repair a defect, a build, or to add additional functionality to an existing application
-Providing efficient solutions in a timely manner for work requests, issues, and defects
-Communicating well with Account Managers, Supervisors, and Clients in regards to work requests, problems and defects
-Acting as both a peer / mentor to other Developers as well as be comfortable asking for help from team members
-Implementing updates & revisions to Web applications
The successful applicant will have:
Ability to find and fix problems in code, this might not be your code and your only hint might be a cryptic complaint from a client.
A good mix of web development skills, you should be able to build out site template and then code all the gears and pulleys behind the scenes as well, we try not to have people who do all HTML/CSS and people who do all backend coding, we like people who can multi-class. You’re not going to work on the same thing for 8 months. If you only have experience on embedded systems or just design sexy layouts, maybe try to brush up on your weaker areas, we are open minded though so don’t let this scare you away.
Our designers use Photoshop, so when you’re building out the templates, it’s good to know how to navigate around this application. Basic knowledge of how layers work, and the use of some the more important tools that are required for taking apart the design and deriving all the images for web-use is a plus.
We’re open to good programers who know other languages and technologies and are will to learn, but below is a list of a bunch of stuff we normally work with:
If you know other languages don’t forget to mention them, if you are a badass Lisp hacker type, mention that.
Comfortable working in a Linux shell to do day-to-day tasks. Hopefully you have installed Linux on something at least once, even if it was just your Xbox, phone, vacuum etc. (For real though, you can get Linux installed on a Roomba)
At least some understanding of linux hosting. Have you configured your own server? Did you setup a web server for your house or friends, even if no one else really cared?
Prior experience with a source control system (ex, SVN, Git, GitHub, etc.)
Formal education or prior experience is NOT required, we just want to know that you can code, so hopefully you have some code you can show us.
