Happy Cog is looking for a full-time Frontend Developer in the NYC area to join our team immediately.
You’ll be a member of our development team, working closely with our other fantastic front-end and backend developers during every phase of your projects. You’ll also be communicating directly with clients and with our project managers to understand their requirements and present your work. Your job will be fun, challenging, and interesting.
You’ll be working on 2-3 projects at any time; typically one large buildout and a few smaller projects to keep things fresh. And you’ll work on the perfect development system: a huge monitor and a new computer of your choice.
* Bring visual designs to life using the latest in libraries, frameworks, and tooling.
* Learn new technologies on the job. We do not specialize in any one language, framework, tool, or methodology – we require our engineers to be resourceful when it comes to learning about shiny new things.
Projects you could work on:
Happy Cog is a growing company, and we have more projects than ever, which is why we're hiring! Every project is unique, and you'd be working on those that your skills and experience would be best suited for. Here are some examples of projects we've worked on recently so you can get an idea of what we do. Our tech stack varies from project to project, but some that are used more frequently include Node.js, Typescript, React, Angular 1/2, Foundation, Tailwind, Webpack, ES6, and (many) others.
* Building out modular/component based visuals in tandem with HTTP APIs and modern CMS platforms (we're not big fans of rigid "templates").
* Experimenting with advanced visual techniques and animations to test the limits of what is possible in modern CSS.
* Defining and setting up a strong foundation for long term maintainability for large scale design systems, and architecting solutions for today's problems and accommodate what future iterations might bring.
* Architect a new series of features for a cross-platform (iOS and Android) Phonegap/Cordova powered mobile app using Angular 2 and Ionic.
* Consult with our in-house visual design team on technical feasibility, prototyping complex interactions or dynamic interfaces, or brainstorming on possible solutions to the problem at hand.
* A creative environment to do the best work of your career.
* An amazing team of developers, designers, marketers, project managers, and the occasional four-legged office pet.
* Lunch paid for by the company, every day, via your own Seamless account.
* Flexible hours.
* Flexible paid vacation policy.
* Health, Dental, and Vision insurance.
* Retirement plan with company matching.
* Perks and discounts from many stores and services-- cell phone bills, hotels, rental cars, gyms, etc...
If you’re interested please apply as soon as possible, attention Ben Smith. Examples of your real-world work are more important than a perfect resume. If you worked on a project with a team, please tell us which parts you were responsible for.
