Frontend Engineer (CSS)
Oakland, California or Anywhere — Contract
Today, we write a lot of CSS — suspiciously too much.
We need to get and stay DRY. We’ve got a lot of content to put on pages, the entire internet in fact. Our CSS needs to grow up if we’re to make that content shine and get home on time!
Know a thing or two about floats & flexbox.
Follow BEM or a similar methodology for scoping & naming.
Thoughtfully approach ordering, indentation & other details of the craft.
Use build systems such as Grunt, Gulp, Make, Sprockets, etc.
Direct transitions with a flair for the dramatic.
Obsessively consume & apply typographical excellence.
Are proactive, organized & vocal about everything you do.
On any given day you might...
Observe great patterns in the wild, both in our work & elsewhere. Adapt as necessary to make reusable templates & CSS. Rinse, repeat & open source.
Maintain CSS & HTML coding standards. Enforce with tooling & code review.
Promote & educate others about new techniques & best practices we discover along the way.
Contribute to the design & development of product UI for Storyteller.io & Universe.
Work on agency projects of distinction & potential for exploration and testing of new ideas.
