What does the Frontend Developer do?

Your role, in a nutshell.

It’s an incredible opportunity for Glass Canvas to work alongside amazing clients who are passionately dedicated to doing “work that matters”. One of the ways we partner with organizations is to help them tell their stories; we share the essence of who they are and what they’re the best in the world at.

A day in the life of a Frontend Developer

Here are some of your job duties:

Coordinating with client leads and getting to really understand the client; who they are and what they do. You’ll need to have a good understanding of what makes the organization tick and the elements that users will need in their web journey.

Working with our developers and designers to bring together ui/ux design and technical implementation. You’ll have an important role to play in how an application both looks and works.

Hunkering down to implement the ui with clean HTML5 patterns, well-organized SASS, and some JS snippets to make things pop. You might even bring in a few AJAX calls to load some dynamic content, a React component where it makes sense, and possibly jump into some React Native here and there.


Do you have what it takes?

Here are a few things we are looking for:

We need you to be on top of your game. While we understand that it will take time to get used to being part of the team, we want you to be a proactive self-starter, who can handle ambiguity and uncertainty with minimal guidance.

We need you to have a good understanding of user experience and how that factors into front end development. We also need you to be able to play around with Rails and some actual programming. Our team uses Ruby on the Rails, so any Rails experience you may have is a definite plus.

We need you to be on top of the game when it comes to modern web technologies. A few areas of proficiency that we’d love to see include HTML5, CSS3, SASS, JavaScript, Bootstrap, and optionally React.

We need you to be comfortable with technology. We’re the texting, “Slacking” (bonus points if you get it), Google Hangout-ing ‘kinda team.

We’re also the praying kind, so spiritual conversations are commonplace. While we don’t require you to practice a certain kind of faith, most of our team members and our clients come from a spiritual background. So an openness to spirituality and church culture would definitely be an asset.


CHALLENGE ACCEPTED?

Here’s what you need to do next:

If all this sounds great, awesome! We want to hear from you. Please send us your story. We’d love to see your resume as well as a short note about what you think you are best in the world at (or would like to be). We’d also love to know how you heard about us and what makes you want to join our team.

We’re looking forward to hearing from you!
