This includes not only learning new IT skills and working collaboratively on a team of developers, but also overseeing and contributing to the complete business process.

We use several different technologies for our multiple business areas, so being diverse is an important asset to the team.

- Create integration UX plans for our ever-growing product lines
- Help improve, rebuild and expand our resources and systems
- Make architectural suggestions that impact thousands of users and corporations
- Research new technologies to see how we can apply them to better the development process

Our backend currently consists of:
- PHP (Wordpress)
- VBScript/JScript (classic ASP)
- C# (ASP.NET)

Qualifications:

You should:

- have at least 3 to 5 years experience in web development
- be able to comfortably learn and apply new technologies and concepts in your workflow
- write easy-to-read, self-documenting code
- be proficient in HTML5, CSS3, jQuery, cross-browser compatibility
- have experience writing SQL and working with databases (we use SQL Server and MySQL)
- be comfortable interacting with non-technical people (e.g. business teams, designers, etc.)
- have a degree in computer science or something related

Pluses:

Experience with:

- the full engineering stack
- WordPress and/or Drupal backend (templates, themes, modules)
- Source control systems (Perforce, Git)
- Photoshop/Gimp (measure layouts, sample colors, crop and save assets)

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