Entry Level Front End Web Developer

The Overview

  • We build and support websites for major furniture retailers all over the country.
  • We’re looking for a junior software developer to join our team.
  • We’re very selective when it comes to hiring because we only want to work with awesome people.
  • Your current level of experience is far less important to us than your attitude, potential, and compatibility with our company culture.

The Role

We’re growing, doing big things, and we need another team member. Our tech team is a small group of highly efficient developers, focused on the home furnishings industry. We work as a team in a fast-paced development environment building out solutions that solve real problems for shoppers, retailers, and the industry in general.

We want someone who gets excited and passionate about doing whatever it takes to create a great experience for the end user. This means being an integral part of identifying the problem/opportunity, defining the best way to architect the solution, writing great code, thinking through every aspect of the experience, and being an awesome team member through it all. We’re looking for someone who is a thinker and a doer.

This is an entry level position for a front end web developer. The person in this role will work with our retail clients and our team on all shapes and sizes of projects for our client's websites.

In time, we would expect the person in this role to be come expert in HTML, CSS, Javascript, and web design processes. This person should become a leader in the company for pushing new technology, process, and design.

This is not a role that is only writing code and building pages. You'll need to work closely with our team and partners to help define projects as they come along. Often a client will ask for a task to be completed that is not the best way to achieve their actual goal, you'll need to be able to step back, analyze the situation, and figure out what should happen in order to help them achieve their goal. To be successful in this role, you'll need to be as much as business consultant as a web designer. If you want a role that is 100% coding, where someone else is figuring out what needs to happen and you go make it happen, please do not apply.

There is an on-call aspect to this role. You'll be required to respond to after hours requests from clients as they come in. These are typically urgent requests for changes that cannot wait until the next business day.

Who will be successful here

Our standards are extremely high. Most job seekers say that they want to be successful, but very few are actually willing to put in the time and energy necessary to be the best that they can be, and to help their team and their clients be truly great. If you're just looking for a "job," please do NOT apply. We are looking to recruit highly motivated individuals who want to join a team, who are committed to personal excellence, and who don't just want to be good, they want to be great. We are looking for strategic thinkers, self-motivators, and executers.

Compensation

We are a company that believes financial rewards and compensation should go to individuals who work hard and earn it. We focus on long term (rather than short term) success and payout in our relationships. We want to hire someone who is looking to invest along with us in their career and in our business.

We hire people for a sixteen week trial period that pays $1,040 every two weeks. During that time you will get to meet our team, learn about our business, and receive extensive training. After the trial, entry level candidates start at $34,000/year.

Candidates with experience, let’s talk. We want to offer you a competitive compensation package based on what you bring to the table.

We have paid generous bonuses every year. Salary increases are not based on any sort of timeline. They are based on individual growth and contribution toward company success. If you stand out, so will your compensation.
