We’re always keeping our eyes out for great people—always looking, carefully hiring. The right person loves collaboration with coworkers and clients and believes it leads to the best work. The right builder also wants to work in a learning-hungry web environment and help lead the web industry by sharing. Sparkbox has been intentionally working to build a team where we acknowledge our own imperfections, make all feel welcome, and humbly help each other grow.
You will be expected to help craft solutions to client needs, recognizing the constraints of each unique situation. You’ll work with our team of designers and developers to turn those solutions into high-quality, well-tested websites and applications that are accessible to as many people as possible.
We’re looking for applicants with professional web development experience. To be very clear: if you don’t have experience working as a web developer beyond a classroom or a bootcamp, this particular position is not a good match. Instead, you may be a great fit for our Full-Stack Developer Apprenticeship.
We’re actively looking for individuals that will bring a diverse perspective to the Sparkbox office. Passion and humility are vital, as you’ll work directly with our designers, project managers, and other developers at Sparkbox. You’ll also interact with clients and should feel comfortable presenting work. You’ll need to be hungry to learn new things, advance your skills, and push to find new processes.
A few things you could spend your days with:
- CSS, Sass, and CSS-in-JS built responsively for many browsers
- Clean, semantic HTML
- Git, Github, CircleCI, Netlify, and Heroku
- Dynamic Pattern Libraries, Design Systems, Storybook
- Accessibility (WCAG 2.1 AA or higher) and Progressive Enhancement
- WordPress, Drupal, ExpressionEngine and other CMS technologies
- Closely working with UI Designers to translate designs to code
- Test-Driven Development
- Continuous Integration and Delivery
- Potential to lead project teams in partnership with client developers
- Weekly time dedicated to mentoring more junior team members and apprentices
