Front-End Engineer

Job description

Front-End Engineers at Threespot build solutions that are elegant, forward-thinking and accessible to all. They may come from diverse backgrounds but all share the desire to be challenged and grow. They collaborate closely with producers, UX strategists, and designers to ensure everything we build is performant and delivered on time.

 

Front-end development at Threespot includes a wide range of skill sets. Projects can include; making design pattern libraries for large organizations, using static-site generators to build smaller campaign-focused sites, using React or Vue to build single-page apps, developing custom WordPress themes, and collaborating with our business development team by contributing to proposals and attending client pitch meetings.

 

Though primarily focused on the client-side, our front-end developers are comfortable using back-end templating languages to integrate their markup (e.g. Blade, Timber, Twig, ERB). Prior WordPress experience isn’t a strict requirement for this position, however applicants should be open to learning on the job with mentorship from other developers.

 

Since 1999, Threespot has been building digital solutions for clients. Somewhere along the way, we discovered that we value making a difference as much as we like making things. Since then, we’ve dedicated our time and talent to help those, and only those, who are committed to helping others.

 

If you want to work for clients who are making a difference, and not just a profit, we should talk.
