Front-end Developer

Wellington, New Zealand · Development


We are looking for an HTML/CSS specialist who is passionate about component driven development. The kind of person who has been mucking around with websites since they were teenagers. Someone who understands the fundamentals of CSS and is able to discuss the pros and cons of methodologies such as Object Oriented CSS, ITCSS, BEM, SMACSS (to name a few).

You won't necessarily have a degree, but you will have 3+ years professional experience.

You might be someone who started out as a web designer but prefers to get their kicks from reproducing beautiful UIs, faithfully and thoughtfully.

You might know a bit of JavaScript, but you don't have to, the main focus of this role is writing well structured, accessible HTML and flexible, well-architected CSS.

If you're someone who feels physically sick whenever they see @import "bootstrap", HIT THAT APPLY BUTTON!

Our Front-end developers write SCSS using BEM with an ITCSS based structure. They create and maintain digital pattern libraries. They write modular, re-usable, extensible and beautiful code. This ain't a JavaScript role.
