We're Hiring!

Web Developer Wanted.
March 31, 2014

We’re on the lookout for a front-end developer with spunk, edge, and pizzazz! More importantly, someone who is enthusiastic and driven, and enjoys getting their hands dirty to solve whatever weird issue our design team throws at them. But don’t worry, we’ll provide the coffee.

Some of the skills we’re looking for:

  • fluency in valid, standards-compliant, cross-browser HTML/CSS
  • expertise in responsive, fluid layout and mobile device optimization
  • experience with modern object-oriented JavaScript and JS frameworks
  • experience with SASS/Compass
  • experience building sites using Drupal or Wordpress 
  • experience integrating with PHP/MySQL backends
  • comfortable configuring servers and email
  • experience managing an internal OS X server, file system, and best practice backup techniques

Along with these highfaluting technical abilities, the perfect candidate will have a good sense of design and an eye for the details (pixel-perfect coding), is comfortable setting up development environments, and has a desire to create modular, reusable and maintainable code.

At Trapeze, we work in a highly collaborative environment, and we need a developer who is excited to work as part of a team to create mind-blowing work. That means:

  • having excellent written and verbal communication skills
  • being comfortable implementing/interpreting direction and feedback
  • the ability to work in a fast-paced environment and manage multiple projects with strict deadlines
  • a high level of self-management and organizational skills
  • comfortable speaking to clients and leading them through a website

Some of the skills on our wishlist:

  • experience using Git
  • design experience
  • knowledge of search engine optimization
  • experience with Omega 4 Drupal theme
  • experience working with mobile apps
  • experience with facebook pages and other social media streams
  • understanding of google analytics

If you’re interested, please send us your resume, cover letter, and link to your portfolio or at least 3 sites you’ve developed to richard@trapeze.
