Freelance Front End Developer

We’re looking for an ongoing, periodic freelance/contract front end developer who will work with our designers on interactive projects. You will work on both static websites developed outside of any CMS using HTML, CSS, JavaScript and a few other tools and front end development to work with various CMS. If you know WordPress, even better. You’ll have an entrepreneurial spirit, humor and be excited to collaborate with a small, design-focused creative team with big ideas.

You’ll hand code web designs working from files provided in the latest Adobe CC programs (Photoshop, Illustrator, etc.) or Sketch. You might be an individual or a duo?

You’re a creative problem solver who works well with picky designers and time constraints, always with a can-do attitude. You have a passion for beautiful code, standards compliant HTML and best practices: Mastery of HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript and experience with JS frameworks including jQuery, Modernizr, etc. You enjoy the latest technologies, but also demonstrate a solid understanding of backwards compatibility, cross-browser/platform issues, MSIE quirks, workarounds and solutions. You can debug and solve problems. You’ll use Git and bug tracking software.

Requirements

  • Experience collaborating with designers or agencies that you can share via links or completed projects.
  • It’s nice if you reside in the New York metropolitan area, but not required.
  • Bachelor’s degree (preferred).
  • Working code samples.
  • References.

To apply

Email résumé, references, work/code samples (URLs and/or working samples), and desired rate to jobs@ideasonpurpose.com. Do not call.
