Front End Developer

Chicago, IL

Adage is a web development firm located in downtown Chicago. We've been around since 2001 and specialize in developing custom websites, web apps, and mobile apps.

We are looking for a Front-End Developer who can help us engineer user interfaces. You'll be working most often with HTML5, CSS3, jQuery, JavaScript and whatever other technologies and tools you need to help you get the job done.

Our teams are small so it easy for your influence to be felt through the code you write and the ideas you bring to the table. Don't be surprised to see yourself interacting directly with clients or collaborating often with UX Designers, Web Designers, and Back-End Developers. We're all in it together and work closely as a result.

What you’ll be doing:

  • Building semantic, accessible and maintainable front-end interfaces with HTML5, CSS3 and JavaScript
  • Faithfully and accurately translating prototypes and design comps into working interfaces
  • Maintaining and improving front-end code bases across a wide variety of projects
  • Translating business and user requirements into usable web applications and sites
  • Playing a key role in client communication, project planning and estimation of front-end tasks
  • Collaborating with Designers and UX architects to promote and achieve optimal solutions for clients
  • Taking the lead on browser/device acceptance testing and bug fixing

We are looking for someone who: 

  • Has a true passion for design and technology
  • Loves CSS Pre-processors and only has the urge to use Grunt when compiling code
  • Has experience working with responsive layouts and believes “pixel-perfect” isn’t always relevant
  • Speaks fluent CSS3, HTML5, and JavaScript (including jQuery and other frameworks)
  • Has experience or a desire to flex advanced JS skills (Node, Require and Backbone)
  • Understands the benefits of using a responsive framework, but doesn't always need to rely on it
  • Has deep experience diagnosing and resolving cross-browser/device challenges and bugs
  • Delivers quality work within budget and timeline constraints
  • Pushes themselves to stay current and applying the most innovative industry best practices
  • Has a positive, proactive and collaborative attitude while also demonstrating humility
