Qualifications

The person we’re looking for will have 10+ years of relevant digital design experience, preferably in the media space, and should be passionate about our brands/digital properties.

  • Responsive Design: Implement designs that flow from Phone to Phablet to Tablet to Desktop without getting dizzy.
  • Client-side Javascript: Love Javascript. Walking the DOM is a walk in the park. "use strict" isn't optional for you. Promises look promising.
  • Server-side Javascript: Node.js and NPM are the bee's knees.
  • Images: Have opinions on the best use of GIFs, JPGs, PNGs, SVGs and whether they should be in a sprite sheet, base64-encoded, data:inlined, linked or not used at all. Deliver retina images when needed, and not a pixel more.
  • Frameworks: Know when they save you time, when they get in the way, and how to spot frameworks that aren't worth the trouble.
