Front End Developer
For the past decade, Sparkart has designed and built web sites for some of the biggest names in the worlds of music, television, fashion, and sports. Along the way, we’ve built a powerful platform for faster development, easier content management, and fully integrated e-commerce. The platform makes our lives easier and delivers real results to the brands we represent. We’re excited to see what it can do for others. It’s called Clique Tools and it’s coming soon.
We’ve accomplished a lot, and our efforts are already at work across dozens of sites that serve millions of visitors and customers every month. Currently our focus is to refine, refactor, and rethink what we have. We’ll launch when we’re ready. We’re looking for someone to help us get there. Exact responsibilities are to be determined based on specific skills and experience. Looking to work on a variety of projects with minimal friction and plenty of opportunities to learn? This is the place for you.
