Front-End Developer

Hashrocket is looking for a front-end developer to work from our Jacksonville Beach, FL office. We are a Ruby on Rails design and development shop, and we strive to be the best at what we do. Our current and past employees read like a who’s who of Rails developers, and we’re looking to do the same with our design team.

Our projects are nearly exclusively Rails web applications, so some familiarity with Rails views and how a Rails project is set up is a plus. We also write HAML and SASS exclusively, but don’t let that scare you. If you don’t have experience with them but are an expert at their cousins, we can get you up to speed quickly.

While we primarily use jQuery for our Javascript library, we’re always evaluating other libraries to determine if they would be a better fit. We also have a history of writing all of our own jQuery plugins, and at times even write vanilla Javascript (oh my!). A good knowledge of all aspects of jQuery from DOM manipulation to custom animations to long-form Ajax method calls is required, as you’ll be jumping in to a wide variety of complex applications.

In short, we need someone who has at least basic experience in:

  • HTML5 and CSS3
  • Cross-browser support to IE7
  • jQuery (prior plugin authoring a BIG plus)
  • Javascript/ECMAScript (can you figure out whether you’re working with an array or arguments list without the use of 3rd party code?)
  • Git version control
  • Cutting up designs in Photoshop

Things that would be great to see:

  • An expert level of DOM knowledge (You know what can and can’t be done to the file input element)
  • Experience with jQuery Mobile and related mobile libraries, and mobile browser testing
  • Knowledge and experience with Javascript testing libraries like QUnit and Jasmine
  • A GitHub account with repositories that you have created and authored
  • A burning desire to learn more about all things related to front-end development

Hashrocket loves its talented employees, and isn’t afraid to show it! We offer a full benefits package with paid medical coverage, a company-funded HSA account, a monthly fitness allowance, an annual conference/equipment budget, moving expense reimbursement, and so much more. Our time off package is 4 weeks annually, not counting the 10 holidays and extra day for your birthday. We have a 35 hour work week, with the remaining 5 hours set aside for working on open source projects. We have a fully stocked kitchen with a variety of coffee and tea brewing tools (Some may say we employ a coffee snob or two). We have weekly company sponsored happy hours, as well as occasional company sponsored extra-curricular activities like boat trips to St. Augustine and spa days for the women and spouses. Our beautiful office is located at the beach, with beautiful views of the ocean. We love our talented employees, and it shows. Come work for the best Rails consultancy in the business and live the dream along with us!
