We love working with people who are as excited and passionate about creating clean, functional websites and applications as we are.

- Be able to integrate your work smoothly with existing server-side APIs (bonus points if you can build your own) and communicate with server-side developers.
- Know how to use distributed version control (we use Git).
- Have at least a little experience with PHP, popular frameworks and popular CMSs.
- Be able to integrate with a small, co-ordinated dev team and throw your own ideas and opinions into the mix.

- Have solid written and verbal communication skills.
