Front End Dev Lead

Looking for a place to grow your skills from awesome to stellar? Or stellar to awesome?

Conteneo is looking for a Front End Developer. And we’re not looking for any developer. We’re looking for someone who has just graduated and doesn’t want to get sucked into the dank coding basement of a large corporate behemoth, or a person who is tired of watching their company spiral downward because they haven’t had a hit in years, or a person who wants to walk into work every day and know that their code really matters.

This isn’t any opportunity. This is the chance of a lifetime. You’ll get a chance to work with a world-renowned team of experts. You’ll leverage cutting edge web technology (Scala/Lift) and mobile devices (iOS/Android) to create new kinds of interaction models. You’ll join a team who believes that hard work is a gift, who is willing to listen to your recommendations and jointly explore alternative solutions to complex problems, who celebrates our successes and cleans up our mistakes. We’re content, but never satisfied, because we’re not talking about changing the world, we’re changing it.

While we’d like you to grok Agile development practices and multidimensional collaboration, we’re happy to teach you what you don’t know. You need to be dynamic, fast working and absolutely reliable, capable of working under tight schedules while treating our customers with sensitivity and decorum. Good communication skills, attention to detail, patience and a sense of humor are essential.

It would be awesome if you know games, gaming and game design. And while we love playing all sorts of games, it is all the better if you believe that games can be more than just blowing Zombies up and finding ways to psychologically coerce people into buying tractors for their friends.

Don’t bother applying if any of these apply to you:

  • Your portfolio isn’t more awesome than our current engines.
  • You can’t write better WordPress HTML than Luke, who created this page and is really frustrated that he can’t make it look more awesome (because at times, you might have to help our WordPress site).
  • You don’t know Wolverine, Cyclops, and Storm.

Our ideal candidate looks a little something like this:

  • Given a visual design, you can generate html5 and css3 to create a pixel perfect implementation.
  • With solid Javascript skills, you will build on and improve our existing framework.
  • AngularJS – 1-2 years experience developing self-contained, reusable, and testable modules and component
  • Able to interface with backend developers to architect simple solutions to complex problems.
  • A solid understand of client-server API design.
  • A conceptual understanding of object models.
  • Up to date with modern front end workflows like SASS, Bower, Grunt, etc.
  • Knows how to git around and git along with a code repository (hint: we use git)
  • Know your way around Adobe’s awesome products
  • Can enhance existing visual and interaction designs given a set of use cases.
  • Added bonus if you can produce visual and interaction designs from whole cloth
  • Able to function within a team with fluid roles and evolving backlog.
  • Adhere to best practices by using and creating development patterns.
  • Able to deliver whole and complete product within the bounds of sprint.
