Frontend Developer: Elegant Code + Elegant Design

About You:

  • You perform optimally at the intersection of development and design.
  • You have a reputation for being a good coder and also have a passion for the way the pixels look on the page.
  • Your proven track record of building amazing things speaks for itself.
  • You are passionate about creating extraordinary web experiences by writing beautiful code.
  • You have experience with JavaScript, CSS and semantic HTML and have strong debugging abilities across all major browsers.
  • You’ve worked efficiently in large JavaScript codebases and know how to keep the code modular and loosely coupled.
  • You get bonus points for an ability to think full stack and move around the codebase as necessary to get the job done, including interfacing with RESTful APIs and implementing supporting mid-tier code in Java.

The Role:

The clean, intuitive, and beautiful user interface you will build plays a critical role in the Platfora user experience — allowing users to navigate through data and visually manipulate massive data sets to gain new insights and also to share and tell stories around their data.

You will develop core frontend components of a fast, scalable, complex web application (Haml, HTML5, SASS, CSS, JavaScript) using libraries and frameworks (e.g. jQuery, MooTools, Closure, Dojo, YUI).

The sleek, beautiful results of your work make you an integral part of our product/engineering group as you define, design, and develop new features with a top-caliber team.
