Front End Web Developer and Designer

Do you consider yourself a "unicorn"? One who can design beautiful web pages while also possessing the ability to translate your design into a functioning page using HTML/CSS/Javascript? Have you ever added 1px of top padding to an element...removed it…then added it back just because it had to be absolutely perfect? Are you passionate about the way users behave online and how your experiences can drive those users to increase our business goals? If so, we want you to join our fast-paced digital marketing team as our Front-End Web Developer and Designer to create stellar online experiences with a mission of changing people's lives.
