    Hard Working, Fun Loving Agency Seeking Full-Time Front-End Web Developer: 

    Rockit Science Agency, a boutique ad agency based in Baton Rouge, is now hiring a full time, well-rounded, front-end web developer with an eye for design. Applicant should be passionate about their work.

    What you should know:
    – Keep up-to-date on web standards, accessibility, and usability
    – Know HTML, CSS, and JavaScript
    – Sweat the details and don’t mind experimenting with the latest tools and frameworks
    – Collaborate closely with designers before and during the development process to build engaging, easy-to-use websites and applications
    – Design skills are a plus, but not required

    Be prepared to:
    – Organize content and determine the most user-friendly navigation when redesigning a site or starting fresh
    – Create wireframes to demonstrate functionality (in code or using tools like OmniGraffle)
    – Write HTML and CSS and use cutting edge practices and technology (CSS3, media queries, HTML5, responsive design, etc.)
    – Write JavaScript. You don’t have to be an expert in it, but familiarity with tools like jQuery and Grunt are extremely helpful
    – Know and use Craft, ExpressionEngine, or other CMS platforms
    – Test across browsers and know how to address the small quirks that would drive a less experienced developer insane
    – Meet deadlines and communicate progress to the rest of the team
    – Be willing to teach, share, learn, and grow

     While coding is your thing, we work as a team, so your ability to critique designs, provide accurate estimates for deliverables, be positive and collaborative, and pitch in when a coworker needs a little help will go far. Rockit Science Agency offers competitive salary and benefits. Candidates can send their cover letter, resume, and example of work to careers@rockitscienceagency.com
