Front-end Developer



We are looking for a collaborative and curious Interface Developer to join our Front End team in the New York studio. As an Interface Engineer, you sit at the crossroads of design and technology, where you build front end templates or modules and test design concepts with prototypes.

Our team

The engineering team is a design-driven group of coders and thinkers who bring ideas to life. Reliability, scalability, and performance are just some of the things we think about day to day in our coding work. We also believe that sharing knowledge and expertise builds strong bonds amongst one another and by extension, a strong team. We value helpfulness and support one another to solve challenges and learn new skills.

In our next team member we hope to find…

  • A coder who’s comfortable using HTML, CSS, JavaScript . You plan for, measure, and enhance performance in your code.
  • A clear, conscience and empathetic communicator. You can discuss technological concepts with fellow engineers and translate for non-engineers. You give time and attention to how you build relationships with those around you and enjoy having strong bonds with your colleagues.
  • Someone who thrives in collaborative environments and understands agency workflow. You enjoy working on varied client projects and are up for the challenge of a fast-paced environment.
  • A team member who loves learning and honing their craft as an engineer. You love learning new technologies, and pushing yourself to grow.

As an Interface Engineer, you would…

  • Build responsive front end systems. A key tenet for our front end engineering team is creating templates that follow design with pixel-perfect accuracy.
  • Work with Application engineers on template integration
  • Create written specs and documentation for readmes, internal documentation to help formalize process or as an artifact for future maintenance.
  • Collaborate on research and experimentation for client and internal project work. We value knowledge sharing and learning from one another. We have regular group meetings to discuss our process and new technologies. We would like to continue to grow our team of curious people.
