Front-End Web Developer
A little about us
thirteen23 is
looking for a front-end web developer to join our boutique software design and
development agency. We’re a small, tight-knit team of designers and developers
who collaborate on each project from start to finish.
Because we’re so small, you’ll have
the freedom to be creative and solve problems your own way. With freedom comes
responsibility, though, so it’ll be up to you to nail the execution, all the
way down to the fit & finish.
A little about you
You love design and have a
strong sense of what looks good and works well. You’re obsessed with details
and getting the little things right, in your code and in the final product. You
consider yourself to be a tireless advocate of the end-user.
Everybody wants someone who can write
HTML & CSS by hand, but you understand how a little help from Sass and
Compass can go a long way in the age of CSS3 and vendor-prefixed properties.
You’re opinionated about template languages, and probably have strong feelings
about Haml.
When you open up a PSD, you
immediately start looking for things you can implement without using images,
and can explain how the design will look different in older browsers (and why
that’s okay).
But you also love code, and
have a strong sense of how elegant, modular programming enhances readability
and maintainability. JavaScript is a joy to you because you only use the good
You understand browser internals like
HTTP, caching and the DOM. You care deeply about performance, from page weight
to animation frame rates. You know why jQuery is awesome, and you’re familiar
with projects to help make writing large-scale JavaScript apps easier, like
Backbone and Ember.js.
You use version control on every
project, even personal ones.
Most importantly, you’re addicted to
learning new things and keeping your skills state-of-the-art.
If this sounds like you, get in touch.
Group Health, Short -Term Disability,
401K, 24-7 parking spot in the center of downtown Austin, regular team lunches
and activities.
