Opening For Front-End Developer

About you

There’s a common misconception that you’re not a true developer if you only know HTML and CSS--that’s a lie and you’re here to prove it wrong. You’re at least familiar with JS, graphic design, UX design, back-end development, project management, and the command line, but you have a rock-solid understanding of CSS and HTML and how to work with them in responsive and accessible contexts.

You’re passionate about what you do and love sharing what you learn. You know, for example, not only how to transform complex UI designs into performant, elegant code, but also how to explain your solutions to others.

 

About the job

Your job is to be our resident CSS and HTML expert. You’ll support our team when we need to figure out how to lay out components on a grid, style an accessible form, modernize a legacy codebase, and solve other CSS challenges.

At Redfin, you will do more than write code in a silo: you will participate in a multidisciplinary, agile team to complete projects for our clients, as well as support ongoing development and maintenance. Your work will range from theming Drupal sites to collaborating with a client to help them understand what’s possible within a defined scope to meet their needs.

  • Front-end development for various projects for web and mobile devices

  • Use a variety of front-end technologies in order to create accessible, cross-device, cross-browser, and user-friendly interfaces

  • Create themes leveraging the Twig framework

  • Incorporate Redfin and client style guides in your work

  • Work within a multidisciplinary-team with back-end developers and graphic designers to provide a cohesive experience

  • Make suggestions for better solutions to problems

  • Keep abreast of the latest and emerging technologies

  • Attend training camps and conferences

 

Requirements and qualifications

  • Ability to work on-site in Portland, ME

  • An undergraduate degree

  • Three years of experience as a front-end developer

  • Experience with CSS preprocessors

  • Excellent knowledge of browser troubleshooting and debugging practices and techniques

  • Experience with Node and npm/yarn for task automation and front-end package management

  • Knowledge of codestyles and code standards and linters

  • Experience with Twig 

  • Experience with React, Gatsby, Sass and/or Drupal is a plus

 

The successful applicant will be:

  • Curious and ready to learn

  • Able to communicate clearly and effectively in person and on paper

  • Able to adapt quickly to changing client needs

  • Able to work both independently and within a team 

  • Ambitious, self-driven, and inventive in technical solutions
