Front-End Developer Job Description 

Boxcar Creative is a small but powerful digital marketing agency with over 20 years of experience and a dedicated staff of focused, hard-working, and pleasantly unhinged team members. We work with big and small clients on projects both big and small. Our client roster is a bouillabaisse of business types, from healthcare to retail to chocolate makers. And bonus points if you’re familiar with the word “bouillabaisse.”

We’re looking for someone technically minded, but creatively inclined; someone who isn’t satisfied with delivering only what’s expected; someone who knows about the newest technology before the keynote speech; someone who might describe themself as “pleasantly unhinged.” You see clients as partners and epic challenges as “nice work if you can get it.” Also, you possess excellent communication and interpersonal skills. 

But what would you actually do as our front-end developer? You would:

  • Determine the structure and design of web pages
  • Support our design team, producing creative collateral (primarily digital, but some experience in old school non-digital media certainly helps)
  • Develope features to enhance the user experience
  • Know the balance between form and function 
  • Optimize sites for smartphones and tablets
  • Build libraries of reusable code for future use
  • Optimize web pages for maximum speed and scalability
  • Remain mindful of our clients’ brand standards

From you, we would like to see:

  • Portfolio of work examples
  • An understanding of basic design principles
  • Proficiency in HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and jQuery
  • Understanding of server-side CSS
  • Experience with the Adobe Creative Cloud
  • Experience with responsive and adaptive design
  • Understanding of SEO principles
  • Good problem-solving skills
  • Excellent verbal communication skills
  • Good interpersonal skills

Send us a resume and a portfolio and we’ll be in touch soon.
