We are seeking a Senior Creative Technologist to join our Boston Digital team.

At Mullen, Creative Technologists are tasked with bringing their deep understanding of the most innovative technologies out there to bear on the agency's creative product.

Advertising creative teams are evolving, and technology needs to be right there in the trenches with art directors, writers, user experience designers and beyond. We're looking for a creatively minded developer who can be a project leader and work closely with other team leads to create badass digital work.

Experience in an agency environment (advertising or digital-only) is mandatory. Bonus points if it was in an integrated environment doing work across all types of media, online and offline. Social media content and applications will be an area of focus, as is mobile technology, so experience with Facebook applications and other social media API-driven sites is required. Mobile web experience is also required, and native app or responsive web experience are big pluses.

Requirements of the Senior Creative Technologist include:
  • Four-year degree is required.
  • Agency or startup experience, or experience in another creatively charged, collaborative environment.
  • A desire and ability to use technology to drive creativity.
  • Experience mentoring junior developers, and exposing them to new technologies, methodologies, frameworks, processes etc.
  • An ability to coordinate efforts with other dev team members and plan/manage thru concepting, planning, development, qa, deployment and evaluation.
  • Very solid front-end skills are a given: HTML5, CSS, Javascript, jQuery.
  • Significant expertise with at least one MVC web application framework (Rails, Django, Cake, etc.)
  • Social technology API experience (as in: Twitter, Foursquare, Facebook, etc.)
  • Experience creating, as well as consuming, JSON-based APIs.
  • Mobile experience is required (mobile web, native iOS and/or Android, or cross-platform frameworks like PhoneGap or Appcelerator)
  • Familiarity with one or more source control systems (Subversion, Git, etc.)
  • 5-8 years of relevant experience required.

    Applicants must provide URLs for a portfolio site, Github username, client work, side projects or any other site or application work that shows your development chops and creative spark. Applicants who do not provide a link to their work will not be reviewed.

    Mullen is an eoe encouraging diversity in the workplace.
