Remote (US-based) Frontend Designer/Developer


Job Description

Dealer Inspire is looking for an experienced developer to join our team. We’re always innovating – we’re looking for people that can own projects and see them through to delivery – while we want rock stars, we’re not interested in prima donnas. Personal responsibility with respect to quality, attention to detail, and contribution of ideas is highly needed to succeed.

At Dealer Inspire, we like to look at current problems and ‘rethink’ about solutions. We’re flexible – we don’t write requirements in stone, and things can change regularly. This means rethinking how the solutions work best. Do you want to come ‘rethink’ with us?

Skills & Requirements

We’re flexible with learning on the job, with corresponding relevant work experience – but, for this position to be successful we need you to know the following, with a strong self-initiative to learn others!

Required:

  • Strong JavaScript skills – ie, not tweaking existing jQuery plugins, but the ability to dig in and drive a powerful user experience that supports the major browsers.
  • Strong Sass/SCSS organizational skills. You have a SCSS compiler preference, and defend it to the death.
  • Strong attention to design detail. Matching markup / layout with mockups, and making them better. Knowing when things are off (even by a couple pixels) – and knowing why that impacts the experience negatively.
  • Diagnosis skills. Ability to dive into a reported problem and figure out why things are happening, and knowing what other factors are contributing.

Highly Desired:

  • Some PHP – enough to be dangerous and be comfortable working with code from other backend engineers.
  • Grunt/Gulp/etc – you’ll own the frontend processes for how the code is managed on the browser. We’re flexible, but the reasoning needs to be backed by knowledge and understanding.
