Join the Team

Front-End Developer

Job Description

Love semantic HTML, powerful CSS, and elegant JavaScript? Gravity Works is looking for a front-end developer to join our team. If you have a stellar web portfolio, are excited to learn new technologies, and thrive in a fast-paced environment, let us know!

Primary tasks will be coding HTML and CSS on responsive web projects, building front-end features, and implementing layouts. Tasks may also include wireframing, completing website design mockups, assisting with mobile application development, and communicating with clients. As a consulting company, we work with a wide range of clients and projects; teamwork is critical, but you will be expected to independently manage your time and tasks.

Gravity Works builds interfaces with the latest tools and methods. Our team works with Sass, Gulp, and Git, but as technology changes, we evolve. Because our office is open and collaborative, we are always learning about the latest techniques, standards, and cross-browser compatibility issues.

Skills & Requirements

Must-Have Skills

  • Top-notch HTML and CSS skills and knowledge.
  • Experience with content management systems such as Drupal, Wordpress, or DNN.
  • Familiar with Javascript or jQuery.
  • A passion for great design and user experience.
  • Organized, responsible, and attentive to details.

Bonus If You

  • Have worked on mobile or responsive web projects. 
  • Enjoy interacting with colleagues and communicating with clients.
  • Have solid writing skills.
  • Are familiar with Git.
  • Are familiar with Photoshop or Fireworks.
  • Are knowledgeable about design and user experience.
  • Have a degree in web design, graphic design, or computer science.

How to Apply

Send your résumé and a link to your online portfolio (or just a couple of examples of your work) to jobs@gravityworksdesign.com.

Please include links to projects you have built or worked on. Provide examples on GitHub, code samples in CodePen, or other formats you are comfortable with.

We don't want to ask you irrelevant trivia questions during the interview process, but we do want to learn about you:

Team Fit

If you get along with the team, you'll have more fun, be more willing to ask questions, and can solve difficult problems quicker. A bad egg can spoil the entire group, but you just might be who we need to push us to (1) use your recently-found, newest-favorite JavaScript library, and (2) take us to laser tag victory.

Passion

If you're passionate, you'll use your own time to learn new things, you'll enjoy coming to work, and you'll be more willing to start projects outside of your comfort zone. If you are a mover (for responsive design), a shaker (for mobile development), or a risk taker (for new technologies), we can't wait to hear from you.

Handle Pressure

We'll want to see you solve puzzles like you would as a team member. We might work under pressure, but we always have the support of our team.

Work Ethic

Will you be reliable, diligent, and give it your best? You'll need to, to be a part of our team. We love the challenge of simplifying complex information with sleek interfaces, organized data, and custom features; Gravity Works is constantly evolving, learning new techniques to turn "I have an idea" into "watch this" with cutting-edge websites and mobile applications.

Gravity Works is always looking to add the best and brightest to our team.

Our Work

We are constantly evolving, turning “I have an idea” into “you should see this” for growing franchises, government agencies, universities, athletic associations, and nonprofits.
