Front End Developers are builders. We derive pleasure from translating, kerning and leading, to letter-spacing and line-height, creating and staying under a site performance budget, and writing good, semantic markup. We often think in terms of systems and interactions and know that the smallest design touches can mean the difference between a good site and a great site. We have empathy for the end user, which translates to good user experience.

At Ntara, Front End Developers are part of our Creative Team. Our work informs the work of designers and their work informs ours. Not a day goes by without collaboration on the design or functionality of a site. As closely as we work with designers, we also understand the world of Back End developers. We think of ways to make their lives easier and cut down on development time.
