About You

You are the fastest front-end developer that you know. You can
bring a page to life using clean semantic html, beautiful CSS3, and
plenty of tricked out jQuery — and get it to validate (mostly). You
enjoy working with a small tight-knit development team, sometimes
burning the midnight oil to get a project deployed on a tight deadline.
You learn quickly and can easily adapt to a wide variety of programming
challenges. You are as comfortable writing object-oriented Javascript as
you are getting something to display correctly in IE6.

Your Responsibilities

  • Build a rock solid UI, that is clean, fast, and accessible
  • Write lots of object-oriented Javascript, mostly using jQuery
  • Bring hi-res mockups to life, striving for pixel-perfect
    matching, while using an economy of assets (i.e. use css with as few
    images as possible)
  • Build beautiful pages with CSS3 that degrade gracefully in older browsers
  • Create HTML emails that hold up across email clients
You Must Have
  • Experience with Object-oriented Jacascript, jQuery, CSS, semantic HTML
  • A basic sense for design and user experience
  • Ability to thrive in a startup environment
Bonus Points For
  • Familiarity with PHP, the Smarty template engine, or MySQL
  • Mobile (Android or iPhone) front-end coding experience
  • Experience working with the Facebook Platform and Google Maps APIs
  • Previous work experience with a consumer Internet company
  • Contributions to open source projects
  • Passion for sustainability and/or transportation
Along with your application please include sample code from a
recent project. For extra credit tell us how you would refactor the
front-end of zimride.com or zimride.com/p.
