  • A passion for emerging technologies and their application to complex problems
  • Thorough knowledge of HTML5, CSS3, and Javascript
  • A clean, organized, well-documented coding style. Preferably OOP

  • Ability to learn new tech stacks reasonably quickly
  • Experience diagnosing and solving cross-browser issues (>= IE11)
  • Expert in responsive design and cross-platform development
  • Ability to work cross-functionally with multiple teams and partner with resources in the broader Design group to scale and deliver amazing work
  • Ability to work across multiple projects and launches while keeping a cool head
  • Ability to perform well in a dynamic, rapidly changing environment
