Senior Front-end Developer

Careers at Savas Labs

The Position

We are looking to hire a Senior Front-end Developer to our team. In this role you will assist in gathering technical and user experience requirements, collaborate with design, implement, configure, and deploy small to large projects leveraging Drupal and Wordpress while collaborating with and supporting others. We'd like to see at least 5 years of application development experience 

Applicants should be HTML, CSS, and web accessibility experts and be fluent in modern JavaScript. Candidates should have either experience or a strong interest in mentoring other front-end team members as well as a strong desire to lead Savas in the successful application of emerging technologies for our partners. Both will be crucial to success in the role.

Working at Savas Labs

At Savas Labs, we prioritize a few things. We like people who are enjoyable to work with. We learn from and teach one another, and often the result is others learn as well either via blog posts, conference presentations, or social media. We dedicate time each week for self-improvement, socializing, and collaboration. We encourage a flexible work schedule so long as we uphold our commitments to one another and our clients. We value openness and encourage our team members to push and recognize the boundaries of their expertise in a given area. We are honest, yet respectful; this is not a cut-throat environment, but rather a supportive one. We take a lot of pride in the quality of our work and we work hard. We value a work/life balance that keeps us productive and happy. We like to have fun and yet take our values seriously. We greatly embrace inclusivity. You’ll like it here.
