We’re seeking a front end web developer who is hungry to collaborate alongside a team of awesome developers in Chicago’s Fulton Market.

Our company
We’re a development-driven group of 7. We’ve built apps and sites for companies like Starbucks, The Second City, HP, Chicago Symphony Orchestra, and BCBS. We also build and sell our own products, like DoneDone. We’re avid developers, designers, writers, and thinkers.

What do we use?
On the front-end, we build standards-based websites with accessibility and flexibility in mind. We hand-code organized, structured HTML/XHTML and CSS while enhancing experience with things like jQuery using industry best-practices.
On the back-end we’re a .NET shop. We use SQL Server, Visual Studio, MVC, and LINQ, along with our proprietary database and code generator, X2O. If you’re bringing along some experience in these, it’s a bonus.

The type of qualities we’re looking for:
  • You hand-code clean, semantic, standards-compliant XHTML/HTML and CSS.
  • You understand how jQuery should and can be used to enhance a site and its interactivity.
  • You’re able to identify and tackle cross-browser quirks.
  • You should feel comfortable building templates that will be integrated with server-side code. Knowing when its appropriate to use hooks is important.
  • You can work as well individually as you do in a small, collaborative team.
  • You are constantly reading up on the newest techniques in development and are eager to bring them into your next project.
  • You are able to utilize CSS3 while still maintaining a fallback for browsers that don’t support it.
  • You have a firm grip on HTML5 and are ready to develop it when its time.
  • You know how to use subversion.
This is a contract (and possibly to hire) position, and we’d need you to be on site.

Absolutely no staffing or placement services. 

To apply: Please send a nice introduction of yourself along with your resume to let.me.in@wearemammoth.com
