Description:

This is a contract role. Duration is 3-5 months. The User Experience Team is in charge of designing great customer experiences across our digital channels. By focusing on the customer first and creating an environment that stresses entrepreneurship, ownership and innovation, the team creates engaging experiences that build customer loyalty and drive revenue growth.

We’re looking for a front-end developer contractor to work with on our Ecommerce site. This role works hand-in-hand with the designers to translate the layered Photoshop/Sketch files into the appropriate experience using HTML5/CSS3/JS/React/PHP.

This is a production role that also crosses into the A/B Testing side of our business, and focuses on accuracy, speed, cross-browser compatibility and efficiency. However, this role partners with design and business functions and is the “grease” between the wheels: you co-own the product with your partners, advise on technical issues, and you find solutions to technical and usability challenges.

Develop new user-interface functionality as requested, by hand-coding Object-Oriented Javascript & React components
Determine feasibility of planned Javascript interactions
Develop prototypes based off wireframes in order to work through any design/development experience issues

Help diagnose/fix frontend issues as they arise
Use, and continually keep on top of, best practices for compatibility, usability, & accessibility
Collaborate with designers and business owners to deliver best possible user experience
Review design in progress with an eye toward production as well as usability/accessibility
Prioritize your time effectively in order to meet project deadlines

Requirements:

2+ years experience in a fast-paced environment
4 years experience hand-coding HTML5, CSS3, Javascript, JSON, jQuery, & PHP
Demonstrated experience translating a layered PSD/Sketch file into optimized image assets and browser-safe CSS and HTML
2+ years experience with Javascript frameworks and libraries, such as React/Redux
Experience working and developing for a CMS (Wordpress, Drupal, etc and templated websites
Well versed with browser and email-client idiosyncrasies and limitations
Knowledge of how to effectively code to WCAG 2.0 & Section 508 compliance
A/B Testing experience is a plus
Good visual design and UX understanding
Self-directed, works effectively with minimal supervision
Handles short time frames well and delivers on time – without mistakes
Excellent contributor who is adept at working with cross-functional teams
Exemplary work ethic, a sense of humor
