Hiring: Full-Stack Web Developer (with an emphasis on front-end)
We’re looking for an experienced Web Developer with some full-stack chops — can develop in WordPress, wants to have fun and be part of a creative team that appreciates good design, UI and UX.
Here’s our story and what we’re looking for:
Dovetail is a brand reimagination agency. What does that mean? Well, we help clients reimagine what’s possible. We have a reputation for producing great work and delivering for our clients. We’ve been building websites in some fashion since 2002, and over the years have built some pretty big sites and some smaller ones, too, based on the challenge we’re trying to solve.
Brand strategy tends to be the reason a lot of clients arrive at Dovetail, and from there we become immersed in finding a better solution — and that usually leads to the web. Sometimes it’s building a website from scratch and sometimes it’s implementing strategic improvements along with the development.
And that’s where you come in!
We’re seeking someone who wants to contribute and can play a role as a technical lead, can do both front- and back-end development, and can help evaluate additional resources when we need them (it’s hard to know everything!). You’ll be joining a team where creative and technical details are valued and people truly enjoy working together.
Here are some of the responsibilities for the position:
- Work closely with leaders and the project manager to ensure our projects meet specified requirements, times and budgets
