(Closed) Wanted: Front-end web developer

Posted by Garrett on

We’re looking for a smart, enthusiastic and seasoned front-end web developer to join our growing team. This is a remote position (unless you happen to be in Dallas, TX).


Good Work is an expert team of web developers that partner with like-minded brands and design agencies to build things for the web. Here’s a few examples of our current projects:

  • A wellness dashboard for a large healthcare company
  • A native iOS app for a real estate startup
  • An online marketplace to help connect people with non profits.

We also handle the technology and support behind a handful of local design agencies, and have a few software projects of our own.

We office out of a cool old house in the heart of the Uptown neighborhood in Dallas, Texas — a short walk from all the bars, restaurants and entertainment you can handle. Half of our team is in Dallas, and half is remote (intentionally!).

Responsibilities:

  • Love what you do and bring that passion into work with you everyday
  • Maintain, contribute and adhere to our best practices and documentation
  • Build and maintain front-end templates
  • Content Management System and web application integration
  • Day to day maintenance of existing websites and features
  • Quality assurance testing

Required skills:

  • Expert in HTML, CSS and JavaScript
  • Solid understanding of web standards and accessibility
  • Possess an analytical mind, questioning everything that you produce
  • Ability to jump in and maintain existing projects quickly
  • A good eye for design, but not a designer
  • Know your way around Creative Suite, especially Illustrator and Photoshop
  • Be a good communicator and confident enough to work with clients and meet deadlines

Desired skills:

  • Experience with the Craft and ExpressionEngine content management systems
  • Experience working with a version control system (Specifically Git)
  • Know your way around Ruby and PHP front-end templating
  • Client-side optimization techniques

Job perks

Competitive salary, flexible hours, health benefits, retirement plan with company matching, monthly hackathons, etc. We also head out to Colorado every year for a good ol’ fashioned company retreat.


How to apply

If you’re interested, please send us your résumé and portfolio (or GitHub profile!) to [email protected]. You will be asked to discuss your previous work at the interview.

Looking forward to meeting y’all!

FYI: Recruiters will be crushed and melted.
