Creative PHP Developer with Front-End Skills
Jan 1, 2016
Do you daydream about making improvements to projects that are "complete"? Are you interested in continuously learning more within your field (and outside it even)? Do you want to work in an environment that wants you to be the best at what you want to be? Do you want to be challenged to create applications and user interfaces in ways that have not yet been imagined? Do you want your work to positively affect people's lives?
We're looking for someone who wants all of the above and is passionate about writing clean code and working as an integral part of a fun team that launches great work on the web.
We're a small company that mostly works remotely. We work on projects ranging from movie marketing sites and applications to medical reporting tools. We strive to build digital products that make a positive difference in people's daily lives, and some are just for fun!
We spend our day on HipChat, Teamwork, Google Hangouts, InVision and Git. If there's an online tool that streamlines what we're doing, we try and integrate it. We do our best to keep communication flowing so no one ends up in a silo (sometimes hard to do being remote, but we try). We don't like inefficient meetings but are always ready to answer questions or brainstorm ideas. If you know a better way to do something we're already doing - let us know. We have fun and we get things done.
Currently familiarity with Laravel is required because of the existing apps that would need support. Ideally you have a good visual sense and have built front-end pages based on pixel perfect precision. Visually we're super picky, like SUPER picky. Our entertainment clients are too...
You're smart, you have a sense of humor, you care about the quality of your work, you want to get better at what you do and learn new things, you're not afraid to speak up and you don't need your hand held to get things done. You comment your Git commits, you troubleshoot and test your work, you ask questions and you make suggestions... And maybe sometimes you post a video of something you find funny, or moving, or sad, or fascinating.
Above all you are consistent. If we don't know when you'll be around this won't work. If you don't reply to emails or HipChat comments this won't work. If you don't show up when you said you would, this won't work. It's baffling how many people do not realize the importance of these simple points...
We mostly work remotely but would love to find someone in Santa Fe or ABQ so that face to face meetings could be held easily. Working in either the Mountain or Pacific time zone is required.
We're initially looking to add someone on a contract basis - we always do this because it takes some time to get to know each other and make sure this is a good fit. If it's a great fit then we can talk about other options because we're interested in long lasting relationships that benefit everyone involved.
