WHO WE ARE
is a software consultancy based in Boston (with remote employees) that specializes in web applications. We have in-house designers, developers, and project managers, and we are looking for a HTML/CSS Specialist to join our growing team. You’ll work alongside talented individuals on groundbreaking projects for the world’s largest companies.
WHAT WE DO
We help ambitious companies transform new ideas into fully deployed web applications. Our clients range from seed funded and early stage startups, who depend on us to define and deliver business-critical workflows, to established enterprise companies seeking fresh perspective and deep expertise on new projects.
Our workflow involves three steps. Designers hand off mockups to the HTML/CSS developers who then give styled templates to engineers. Traditionally writing HTML and CSS was the responsibility of designers or engineers, but with the rapid growth of HTML5 and CSS3, we believe that there needs to be a role within the team solely focused on those technologies.
As an HTML & CSS developer at DockYard you will collaborate closely with our in-house Design and Engineering teams to facilitate the handoff between visual design and implementation. In addition to that, you will be challenged with helping drive the creation of web applications and solving interesting problems regarding accessibility, browser compatibility, standards compliance, and responsive design.
Remote (U.S. based only)
- Own the HTML & CSS development of modern web applications, operating between Design and Engineering teams.
- Assist in scoping, estimating, and planning for projects, in collaboration with the team lead.
- Participate in work review, pairing, or other forms of knowledge sharing.
- Proficiency in HTML5 and CSS3
- Understanding of industry best practices
- Understanding of BEM methodology
- Comfortable developing outside of any CSS frameworks (no Bootstrap, Foundation, etc.)
- Excellent communication skills
NICE TO HAVES
- Knowledge of PostCSS and SMACSS
- Familiarity with a11y practices
- Experience with Sketch and Git
- Prior client services, consulting, or freelancing experience
- Experience working in a remote team
The ideal candidate is one who lives and breathes HTML & CSS, and continuously seeks to sharpen those skills, stays up to date with modern CSS techniques and emerging web standards, and strives to achieve clean, semantic, accessible markup.
