Front End Developer

The Garrigan Lyman Group (GLG) is looking for a rock star front end web developer to keep our clients’ sites updated, beautiful, and fast. You’ll be working in an ever-changing, fast-paced environment utilizing many different languages and platforms based on clients’ needs. We are looking for someone who is excited to learn and grow alongside us, work with high-profile clients, and build beautiful work every day. Sound like a perfect fit? We would love to meet you!

Here’s what success will look like:

  • You’re immediately handling multiple maintenance tickets and tasks a day and collaborating closely with the project team. You’re diving in to fully understand the project, and you’re completing work on time within the allocated timeframe. Meanwhile, you’re nimble and moving between environments like Visual Studio, Sublime Text, Eclipse, and others without missing a beat.
  • You’re taking the flat PSD files generated by the creative team and expertly transforming them into dynamic, fast, optimized, and beautiful web pages and emails. You’re using ExactTarget or similar systems to blast emails to client lists.
  • You’re creating streamlined HTML5 and CSS3. You’re creating Sass and using Gulp/Grunt to output your CSS. You’re not only versed in jQuery and other frameworks, but you can also hand-code JavaScript when needed. You’re cleaning up legacy code when you find it while taking into account cross-browser compatibility.
  • You’re completing all administrative tasks in a timely manner, including but not limited to filling out your timecards, reading and responding to email, showing up to meetings on time, paying attention, taking notes, and giving feedback.
  • Within months, you’re a proactive team member who digs into technology, finds new tools and cutting-edge ways of doing things, and keeps up with the latest and greatest technology trends. You’ll push forward on learning technology and frameworks, including JavaScript and the fundamentals of back end technologies. All along, you’ll be sharing what you know with all of us.
  • Over your first year, you’ll improve as a developer based on feedback and suggestions you’ll be soliciting from your manager and teammates. You’ll become the go-to expert for front end questions and solutions.

Expertise with HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript, and jQuery is crucial, and a high preference will be awarded to those familiar with AngularJS or a similar JavaScript MV* framework. Because our agency moves at light speed, we need someone with the willingness to ask questions, make quick decisions, and stand by them. A marketing or web background will help you get up to speed quickly, and a four-year college degree will show us you have the technical foundation to be successful.

All positions at GLG require flexibility to occasionally work nights, weekends, and off-site at client locations to meet clients’ needs.
