Job Requirements We are looking for a self-motivated web developer to join our small fun team in creating dynamic web sites for one of the top media and event publication companies. You’ll work with all business areas from design to finish products. This includes not only learning new IT skills with other developers, but also the complete business process and the opportunity to bring your own ideas to the table. We use several different technologies for our multiple business areas, so being diverse is a real asset to the team. You need to be passionate about your craft as you will need to take initiative to solve problems and learn/use new technologies and build them with low maintenance needs.

You will:
- Work with our product managers to create, develop and tweak features for our sites
- Create integration UX plans for our ever growing product lines
- Help rebuild our resources and systems. We’re moving away from the older technologies, so you’ll get a chance to help architect the next generation of our systems. (Currently consists of VBScript, PHP, C#, Javascript, Ruby, and Python)
- Always be offering better solutions to areas you work in
- Research new technologies to see how we can apply them to better the development process

You should:
- have around 2 to 4 years experience in web development
- be proficient in at least one of these OOP languages (or similar): PHP, Javascript, Python, Ruby, C#
- know what MVC means
- have googled tips on how to build a RESTful API
- have experience working with relational databases (We use SQL Server and MySQL)
- have experience with a framework, like Django or Rails
- write easy-to-read self-documenting code
- be comfortable interacting with non-technical people (i.e. product managers, designers)
- have a degree in computer science or something related

Experience with:
- the full engineering stack
- WordPress
- SiteCatalyst
- NoSQL databases, like Redis or MongoDB

We’d also love to see your GitHub or Bitbucket profile (or other online projects).
