[JOB] Front-End Developer, Silver Spring, MD

From: user 2.
Sent on: Tuesday, September 6, 2011 11:47 AM
Location: Silver Spring, MD 
Department: Design & Production 
Type: Full Time 
Experience: Entry to Junior-level 
Salary: 30-65k 

Our client is looking for a well-rounded front-end developer who can
jump in and build pages and applications seen by millions of people
every day. You should be able to build out the gorgeous designs of our
award-winning designers, optimize pages to load fast, fix browser
compatibility problems, and write modular, testable JavaScript for our
large web application. We expect that you have strong opinions about
clearfix v. overflow, jQuery v. micro-frameworks, prototype- v.
closure-based object-oriented programming, and CoffeeScript and other
js-next implementations. We also expect you know when to use time-tested
tools rather than the latest hottest. Beyond front-end skills, you
should also be able to help us develop user stories to grow our
bottom-line, communicate with peers and managers in our SCRUM process,
and gel with the whole start-up vibe.  

Unlike most jobs you find in this area, we’re not a
government-consultin­g firm or “a big company with a start-up feel”:
we’re an actual start-up. So there are some things you should know up
front: 

1. We were founded by three very dorky brothers on a server in their
closet. 
o Pluses: your boss won’t stare at you blankly when you try to explain
why his vague ideas can’t be put into code. 
o Minuses: the CEO might personally browbeat you on your poor caching
strategy.   

2. We work hard but have a realistic, agile process for shipping
software.  
o Pluses: you won’t be here late into the night because of shifting
requirements. 
o Minuses: you might be here late into the night playing Starcraft with
the founders.
