Position ID: 679636 Date: 5-21-2009 Dice ID: RTL84898el Required: none Description:elecommute: no Were looking for a Senior Manager/Front-End Engineer to serve as Team Lead for our client-side development efforts. Are you the person were looking for? Maybe, if: You understand how to gracefully degrade styles and JavaScript behaviors, how to 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, youll 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 out. 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. ::About Us:: Were 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, Javascript+Ext, with several ongoing experiments using Pylons, Jinja, jQuery, Dojo and 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 drivers seat.
