Seattle Web Design Message Board › Front-End Web Engineer

Front-End Web Engineer

A former member
Post #: 3
Übermind, located in Fremont, is looking for front-end engineers with solid HTML5, CSS3 and JavaScript engineers to join our team. You’ll be responsible for developing cutting-edge mobile-optimized websites that look and perform beautifully across every platform imaginable. You’ll be encouraged to utilize the very latest HTML5/CSS3 technology, and you’ll code alongside a team of developers as excited about new browser releases as you are. You’ll work closely with both external clients and our own cross-functional teams on projects that range from a few weeks to a few months in length. Great communication skills are a necessity, since you’ll frequently communicate technical functionality and limitations to non-technical teams.

An eye for design is a must, and previous mobile development experience is strongly desired. Ideally, you’re familiar with various mobile OS’s (iOS, Android, BlackBerry, etc) or pick up different UI’s and browser constraints very quickly. You should be passionate about writing clean, semantically-correct code and diligent about keeping file sizes tiny. You should view nit-picky designers and QA engineers as your allies. You should also enjoy working on teams with 1-2 other developers, and be motivated by a sense of ownership of your projects.

Required Skillset:
- Minimum 3 years experience coding semantically-correct, standards-compliant websites with HTML, CSS and Javascript
- Experience with HTML5, CSS3, jQuery and pure Javascript
- Understanding of mobile development best practices
- Strong familiarity with Fireworks, Photoshop, and Illustrator
- Experience with version control platforms (i.e. SVN, Git) and bug tracking systems
- Understanding and appreciation for design
- Self-motivated and able to collaborate effectively with multiple developers
- Great written and verbal communication skills
- Passionate about staying on top of the rapidly changing mobile industry while working in an equally fast-paced environment
- Comfortable working on a Mac/OSX

Preferred Skillset:
- Cross-platform mobile web development experience (iOS, Android, BlackBerry, Windows Phone 7, webOS, etc)
- Web/graphic design background
- Strong JS experience: familiarity with various Javascript frameworks, Ajax/JSON, and gesture/touch-based Javascript
- Extensive knowledge of web optimization principles
- Experience leading development projects and/or junior-level developers
