UI Developer (Javascript, MVC) (BBBH1177) Austin, Texas

Salary: USD75000 - USD100000 per year + stock options


Company

So this is a ridiculously cool work place – we just moved into our own office (a full floor) in downtown Austin. We have a work hard & play hard culture with frequent company social events (and cab vouchers to get home safely from those events). This is a casual and not always politically correct workplace (if you’re easily offended, please don’t apply).

Benefits

  • Competitive salary
  • Insurance for you and your family – fully paid
  • Stock options (we’re still early enough that these are a big deal)
  • Downtown parking pass
  • Unlimited beer and other beverages
  • More free snacks than you have ever seen before (we currently consume 3lbs of pistachios/day)
  • Sake bomb initiation event for all new employees at Imperia
  • Catered lunch from Taco Deli once per week


Job

We are looking for a senior level UI developer. You will be responsible for implementing our highly trafficked websites and internal web-based applications. You have a passion for making great products where form equals function. You should be comfortable working in an open-ended environment where roles are flexible, everything is always changing, and communication is essential. You'll be part of a small, nimble team of designers and developers who love solving hard problems.

Requirements:

  • Mastery of modern HTML/CSS
  • Deep knowledge of JavaScript (we use jQuery)
  • Experience developing consumer-oriented websites
  • OOP development experience (we use PHP and Java)
  • Strong knowledge of web standards and cross-browser development
  • An obsession with clean, valid markup
  • Experience creating rich web applications with AJAX
  • Battle scars from IE6


Bonus:

  • Familiarity with MVC frameworks i.e., Zend Framework, Symfony, or CodeIgniter
  • Familiarity with Google Analytics
  • Familiarity with Section 508 accessibility standards
  • Comfortable in Adobe Creative Suite, especially Illustrator
