Senior Frontend Web Developer - Houston, TX

We’re seeking a full-time, Senior Frontend Web Developer who thrives in a high-impact environment. You will work as part of a hyper-creative team with the goal of producing stunning Web sites that make our competitors weep in frustration.

Key to succeeding in this position is a team-player attitude (and aptitude), as you will be working with a diverse group of individuals with specialized skill sets. The technical and creative support of your team will be critical to your success, even on projects you “own.” Every project is different and demands different levels of technical skill, time management and creative drive; be ready to explore new and emerging technologies and meet the expectations of clients looking to do the next big thing. And be cool. In that dork-cool kind of way that means you’re super-smart, super-talented, ready for a challenge, and devoted to antisocial digital activities.
