Frontend Developer

Come help Axelerant make happiness possible for yourself and others as our next Frontend Developer. We’re an incubator for innovative products and services created to make the world a happier place and we want more like-minded, passionate, communicative, and giving folks to join us.

As an Axelerant Frontend Developer, you will be working hard as you would be designing and implementing the look-and-feel of websites and related materials by creating sitemaps, wireframes, and visual design comps for internal and client-facing web projects. Next, you’ll design for multiple devices and interactions (such as desktops, touch devices like smartphones and tablets, and simpler devices like feature phones).

Beyond using HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and PHP to implement the designs you create, you will usually be working within a templating framework or theming system, we work primarily with Drupal, but WordPress and others are coming along.

Moreover, you will be needed to ensure a good user experience in all work you produce along with creating new visual designs and branding assets. You may need to work within established branding guidelines or style guides for client-facing projects.

If you’re looking for your exact responsibilities, bah humbug. We're a real world organization, and there're going to be times when the unexpected happens, and you’re going to need to step up. We don’t know what it’s going to be or when, but it’ll be a challenge; it could be boring, or it could be something amazing. Either way we get through together, as a team.

Past the role itself, as a person, when you don’t know the answer or are not sure what’s next, be willing to say such and go find out. If you’ve got something to share, do so, whether in our Slack channels or on our blog.

Ultimately, we’re about getting the right things done at the right time and those who are passionate, open, and giving about whatever they’re masters of, will fit into Axelerant.

We’re an organization with team members spread across multiple cultures and time zones. As such, you must be self-motivated in finding the right things to do and communicating proactively in English with the rest of the team.
