We're looking for a highly-skilled, resourceful senior-level front-end developer who can develop social media platform applications and websites alike. This may include theming, writing custom modules and scoping projects. In addition, you will have strong experience with standards-compliant, semantic HTML and CSS, extensive knowledge of native JavaScript, DOM scripting and familiarity with JavaScript frameworks like JQuery and can quickly react when unannounced social media API changes occur and break supported applications across our clients.

You'll be tackling large and small projects that are fun, challenging and span the spectrum of front-end development. Sometimes the deadlines are tight, but that's why we're looking for people with great personalities who are team players. When a project is done, we'll celebrate, enjoy the view and look forward to the next project--wiser and stronger than before.

We're a casual-dress, fun, thriving company with a great work environment and plenty of growth in our future. Movie studios make up the bulk of our client list, so you’ll be working on some blockbuster digital marketing campaigns that get huge exposure. Sometimes we even get to watch the movies in advance of the openings. If we've sparked your interest, drop us an email with your resume and a portfolio of developed sites or applications, and we'll talk.
