FINE Design Group: Web Developer

Posted by | May 3, 2012 | Web Pro Job Tips


Location: Portland, Oregon


We are looking for a developer who codes with
confidence, converses with elegance, and comments with benevolence. This
person works closely with designers and project managers to imagine and
achieve goals that set new standards for Internet awesomeness.
You should have advanced skills in HTML and CSS and be up to
snuff with the latest web standards and accessibility. You should also
have experience working with both server-side (we like Ruby on Rails,
but you’ll see some PHP too) and client-side (hello Javascript!)
scripting; bonus points if your experience includes lots of combining
the two (AJAX).
You produce impressive code based on challenging designs without
resorting to unstable technology. You make looking under the hood a
pleasure with your nicely formatted, well commented code. You do the
debugging on your projects so that others don’t have to. You test your
work in all target environments, and your code will progressively
enhance as users upgrade their browsers. You collaborate well with other
developers and have the ability to contribute to group-wide knowledge
You are able to work with designers to suggest implementations that
retain the aesthetics of a design while allowing for graceful coding
practices. You are the person people want to consult with to learn about
new technologies and features.
Finally, you accept constructive feedback and don’t leave a mess in the kitchen.
