Job Description:

  • We are looking for a Front-End Web Developer who is motivated to combine the art of design with the art of programming.
  • Responsibilities will include translation of the UI/UX design wireframes to actual code that will produce visual elements of the application.
  • You will work with the UI/UX designer and bridge the gap between graphical design and technical implementation, taking an active role on both sides and defining how the application looks as well as how it works.

Responsibilities:

  • Develop new user-facing features

  • Basic knowledge of image authoring tools, to be able to crop, resize, or perform small adjustments on an image.
  • Familiarity with tools such as Gimp or Photoshop is a plus.

Note:

  • A UI/UX designer is expected to deliver finished resources for the developer to incorporate into the app. However, quite often a front-end web developer needs to make some small adjustments.
  • Proficient understanding of cross-browser compatibility issues and ways to work around them.
  • Good understanding of SEO principles and ensuring that application will adhere to them
