Senior Front End Developer

Company description:

Since 2005, Yodle has grown to 1,400+ employees, and we’re not slowing down. With an unmatched combination of rapidly-developing technology, thoughtful data analysis, and expert levels of service, we make online marketing accessible to local businesses.

Everyone at Yodle plays a pivotal role in the company’s overall success. Here, there’s no such thing as slipping through the cracks. We’ve maintained our startup culture for a reason: to create an environment where you can own your ideas and run with them, no matter where you happen to fall on the org chart.

Job Description:

Front-End Developers play an important role on our User Experience (UX) team, developing the presentation layer of Yodle’s properties including websites, functional web applications, and mobile applications. Front-End Developers collaborate openly with other members of the UX discipline, including Interaction Designers and Visual Designers, as well as Product Managers, Technical Developers, and QA.

Great candidates for this role are enthusiastic about the constantly evolving world of front-end web and mobile technologies. They have expert skill in HTML, CSS and JavaScript – writing standards-compliant code from scratch—as well as MVC concepts. They understand how to support the range of browsers and devices that people may be using. They are equally comfortable collaborating with designers as well as developers. They are meticulous in ensuring the quality of their work.

Strong Front-End Developers think not only about the code, but also about way users interact with the things we create. They love to use their skills to create better user experience. Can a screen-based behavior be used to help a user understand a task better? Make it faster to find the right information? Front-end technology has evolved to the point where it can shape the user experience, and we are passionate about finding ways to do that.
