You’re not the typical designer, and you’re proud of that. In fact, what sets you apart is that you’re the perfect hybrid of a designer and coder. A stunning website not only makes you admire the visual design but also the underlying code. You obsess about not only the facade, but also the structure within.
Your projects consistently exceed expectations and are always delivered on time, with clear attention to detail. Your solutions are creative and thoughtful, taking into account all the limitations and possibilities. Above all, you grasp how important it is to understand your audience and clients in order to cater to their needs.
If these statements describe you, this is the opportunity you’ve been looking for. SimplePart’s
design team is looking for our missing piece: a digital designer who has the front-end development chops to help bring our websites to life. You’ll be the bridge between design and development, architecting a perfect foundation on which to overlay dynamic, content-rich websites and reports.
