Front-End Web Developer

About the position

Our product’s users, all staff members at higher education institutions, interface with our text messaging platform via a responsive web application and iOS and Android apps. You, as a front-end developer, will have an opportunity to shape their first experiences with our software.

The front-end components of our web application are built in Javascript using Angular. Our mobile applications are hybrid Ionic apps. You’ve got experience with React and Xamarin? That’s fine.  Wait, it was Vue and Swift? That’s also fine. Maybe you love Typescript and can convince us of the same. We don’t care. We’re looking for someone experienced in web development using a modern JavaScript framework along with HTML/CSS who really understands how the web works.

Maybe even more importantly, as a member of a very small team, you are guaranteed to make an impact as soon as your first day, even if it’s just screwing up the coffee. You’ll need to be both open-minded and willing to share your opinions - ready to learn and to teach. We won’t be the same team after you’re part of it; we’ll be better.

Primary responsibilities

  • Design, develop, and maintain the front-end portions of our applications using HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and other tools at your disposal
  • Design and develop our mobile applications (these are Ionic hybrid now, but may not be  forever)
  • Work with other team members on UI/UX concerns, including design, interactive prototyping, and user research
  • Work in concert with the rest of the development team to make new features a reality; coordinate efforts with folks working on the APIs, databases, and services
  • Provide support for other team members in marketing, sales, client consulting, and support

Not required, but a big plus

  • You have an awareness of and maybe even experience with some server-side development frameworks, languages, and patterns
  • You’ve been involved in building mobile apps
  • You have experience with WCAG and web accessibility concerns
  • Any experience with higher education (software or otherwise)
Interested? Send us a note, and if possible, include a link to something you’ve built or your Github or anything else that might show off your work and interests.
