Volt Technical Resources has a Web Developer position open in Seattle, WA for our Web Technologies Client. They are an industry leading mobile-web connected services platform for Mobile Operators, Device Makers and Retailers to seamlessly deliver a new generation of real-time consumer, social and device management software services on open mobile phones. Today the company supports BlackBerry, S60 and Windows Mobile, which represent approximately 75% of the smartphones being sold in the market.

About Our Client: This company is a privately held company headquartered in Seattle, Washington, USA. The company is backed by investors who built the wireless and technology industries at McCaw Cellular, Western Wireless, Voicestream, Nextel, China Unicom, and Microsoft; and by Best Buy Capital, the strategic investment arm of the largest consumer retailer, Best Buy.

Your Job Responsibilities:

This company has a cross platform solution designed to position the company to become the trusted source for helping people get the most of their mobile phone experience. You will have the opportunity to work on an upcoming release and take ownership of key areas as part of a great team.

You have the ability to craft an interaction until it becomes second nature to the user. The desire to get it correct on every major browser - they don't support IE 6 or 7 :) You have an innate feel for what makes an application a pleasure to use and the tenacity and dedication to deliver that experience. You build applications that work and look great on a wide variety of window sizes, font sizes and screen resolutions.

You speak perfection, but also understand the principles of good enough and the point of diminishing returns. Delivery matters. Hitting the deadline sometimes means making compromises. You pick your battles and make the smart trade-offs between perfection and shipping. You will have extensive experience developing web applications using object oriented JavaScript, in addition to having a strong understanding of loose coupling, functional programming, API design, code maintenance issues, naming conventions, source control, etc. Mastery of design tools and exquisite taste are a must.
