elecommute: no We're looking for a Senior Manager/Front-End Engineer to serve as Team Lead for our
client-side development efforts.
Are you the person we're looking for? Maybe, if:
structure information and keep it and presentation style separate.
You read sites like A List Apart and Ajaxian.
You know what our yslow score is and have many suggestions for how to make it better.
You have an opinion on the Semantic Web, Microformats, HTML5, jquery vs mootools vs
ext, and what doctypes we should be using.
You know your way around conditional CSS selectors and the DOM. You used Blueprint
when it came out, but now find Fluid 960 a bit more to your taste.
You know what "template inheritance" means and how extension differs from composition.
Having done this before, you'll find it even more fun to lead a team of other front-end
folks, and keep a whole bunch of back-end engineers intrigued with new things to figure
You are going to look on our sites and despair. And then make them more efficient,
functional, and beautiful, and show us how you did it. And you think that sounds like fun.
We're looking for someone with at least 5 years of front-end engineering experience, with
a super-strong preference for team lead experience. We want someone who enjoys
teaching others how to manage the front-end work, and has built a set of tools for doing
so in the past.
Our technology stack includes Linux, Postgres, Ruby+Rails, Python+Django,
other tools and frameworks. We use Subversion to manage our code, and Mercurial to
manage our content.
Our applications are designed for, built and run in high-availability environments. So this
is not front-end for the sake of front-end, but front-end for the sake of results. Directly. You
will be in the driver's seat.
