Your primary responsibility will be helping maintain our ecosystem of websites. This involves building pages from scratch based on Illustrator or Sketch designs and making modifications to our WordPress and JAMstack (Jekyll-based) sites.

Your HTML5 & CSS3 skills will shine as you show off optimization and code quality when resolving bugs and issues when they come up. You’ll also work at designing and developing better user experiences and measuring the effect on those through A/B tests.

We practice good coding standards, we build for the future, and we don’t believe in cowboy coding or working in a bubble. We’re looking for thinkers … with talent.

  • CSS Frameworks (Bourbon/Neat, Bootstrap, etc… we roll our own, btw)
  • JavaScript & jQuery skills
  • Experience with build and package management tools like Gulp, NPM, Bower, etc
  • Structured Data (gotta satisfy the Googles)
  • Advanced understanding of all the cool buzzwords… SEO, Web-standards, accessibility and usability concepts, information architecture, UX & UI design (heavy on the UX)
  • Good communication skills & a great can-do attitude (We’re totally serious about this one.)
  • A GitHub account or experience with other version control (SVN, CVS, etc. … but git/gh is where it’s at)

Tech Stack

Must Know:

  • Jekyll, Liquid (templating)
  • HTML, CSS
  • JavaScript, JavaScript, JavaScript, jQuery

Prefer to have:

Human Environment

  • Located in University District of Seattle
  • Cool office perks (free sodas/Topo Chico/coffee, snacks, etc.)
  • Generous salary considerations & full benefits

What We Value

We love to work as a team but office hours are flexible. Producing is more important than meeting a “9 to 5” schedule. We understand there are moments when you need to isolate yourself to concentrate so working from home is permitted and encouraged. We like to have a good time and minimize stress with good in-office coffee, lounge/reading time and regular happy hours. We work hard and meet realistic deadlines. What good is delivering a poor product early?
