Web/Javascript Software Engineer

Location: Charlottesville, VA

Department: Technical/Design

Type: Full Time

Min. Experience: Experienced

Are you a talented web developer who wants to build best-of-class web applications for mobile and desktop web?  Do you want to work with talented software developers and interact with your clients instead of dealing with project managers? Do you want to see the fruits of your labor out in the wild rather than working on internal, corporate projects that never launch? 

Do you think JavaScript only gets a bad rap because most developers don't understand prototypal inheritance? Or maybe you think Compass' image spriting features are the COOLEST THING EVER. Maybe you're one of the few that think they're merely AWESOME. 

If you've answered yes to a few of the above questions, we'd love to talk to you.  To be successful at this job you will have exceptional JavaScript skills, a friendly personality and the ability to work in collaboration with other developers and our clients. 

Do any of these apply to you as well? 

• You've built something cool using Backbone.js, AngularJS, or some other client-side MV* framework.
• Know HTML(5) and CSS(3) inside and out.
• You know Less, SASS or some other CSS preprocessor. Maybe you've even built your   own toolkit that sits on top of your preprocessor of choice.
• You've worked with at least one high-level server-side language.
• You can clearly articulate why "responsive design" isn't a panacea.
• You appreciate being called a hacker.
• You love the web.
• You really love mobile devices.
