Front-End Developer

  • Falls Church, VA (HQ)
  • Durham, NC
  • Boulder, CO

Viget is a digital agency headquartered in Falls Church, VA with offices in Durham, NC and Boulder, CO.  We've been at it since 1999 and have earned a solid reputation as a rare firm that does both great design and development work when building award-winning websites.  We work with early-stage web start-ups (like Bypass Lane), as well as established non-profits (like World Wildlife Foundation) and for-profits (like PUMA).

Our team of Front-End Developers work with designers, Ruby developers, and UX specialists to build rich and engaging interfaces. They write about their techniques and opinions on Viget's Inspire and Extend blogs.

Front-End Developers at Viget are expected to:

  • Find joy in building smart interfaces from comps and wireframes.
  • Have expert-level skills in HTML and CSS, and intermediate experience with Photoshop.
  • Be constantly vigilant about web standards, accessibility, and usability.
  • Write strong, structured JavaScript, and be able to work with tools like jQuery, Backbone, and Grunt to get the job done.
  • Faithfully implement design comps while providing their own touch.
  • Know and use Craft, ExpressionEngine, Wordpress, or other blogging/CMS platforms.
  • Be on top of cutting-edge front-end development practices and technology (CSS3, canvas, media queries, responsive design, HTML5).
  • Have general experience with server-side technology, including PHP and Ruby on Rails.

In addition to coding, FEDs need to be able to:

  • Provide reliable ballpark estimates for front-end tasks/deliverables.
  • Appreciate, enjoy, and critique design.
  • Play well with others - and take pride in their communicative and collaborative abilities.
  • Enjoy variety in their work, but remain committed to projects that take weeks of focused effort to complete.
  • Meet deadlines without breaking a sweat (okay, maybe you will sweat a little sometimes).

You must also:

  • Have at least two years of professional, post-collegiate experience.
  • Have a BS, BFA or equivalent work experience.
