Description

Authentic Form & Function is seeking a junior/mid-level frontend developer to join their growing and vibrant team. Remote and contract-to-fulltime.

US residents only. No businesses.

This position is not:

For someone who needs micromanagement

Our work is our creative lifeline, allowing us to live on our own terms without the need for micromanagement by an uptight boss. We expect team members to be accountable for the work they do, aiming to inject passion into their deliverables while inspiring others along the way.

For someone trying to climb the corporate ladder

At this time, we’re a lean design and development team. We’re able to execute work extremely efficiently and very much take advantage of opportunities that arise from being small. We’re based in Denver and Chicago—thus without a “home” office—and encourage working wherever is most comfortable and productive.

For someone with strict areas of expertise

We value process-oriented knowledge, rather than task-oriented knowledge. While we don’t expect someone to be a master of everything, we believe designers should be familiar with code, and developers understand design. You will be asked to do work outside your comfort zone, and encouraged to learn and cultivate your skill set into new areas of interest.

This position is:

A great way to work inside your passions

We love client work because it lets us percolate amidst favorable industries and with similar minds that share our passions. We consider our company a “lifestyle studio”, meaning our personal lives and ethos cross business/personal borders on a daily basis. We enjoy active and healthy lifestyles, talking music, design, fashion, and technology. We strive to work with clients inside these industries and strive for the projects we accept to be exciting. We want to be just as excited crafting design and development solutions as we are collecting a paycheck at the end of each month.

The chance to be an entrepreneur

We aren’t hiring an employee; we’re hiring someone to help grow Authentic F&F organically, and from the ground up. We want a personality ready to set goals, and do whatever it takes to make them happen. Characteristics that are of the utmost importance:

  • Experience with remote working
  • Extremely self-motivated and goal-oriented
  • Efficient in personal work/life boundaries and balance
  • Articulate and well spoken
  • Pride in his/her writing and communication ability
  • Eager to get dirty in an entrepreneurial environment

Developer Requirements

Being proficient at many of the following, and an understanding of the rest: Modern PHP Development, Laravel, ExpressionEngine, Javascript, Backbone.js, Ruby, Rails, MySQL, Postgres, Sass, Grunt, Bower, Git. Understanding design, UI, and UX concepts, and being able to translate these concepts to technical implementations; HTML and CSS. Strong personal emphasis on attention to detail (naming conventions, clean design files, working with grids, etc.)

Design Niceties

  • Strategy and execution for branding initiatives
  • Wireframes / user flow experience
  • Interaction design background
  • Familiarity of modern design trends and styles
  • Strong personal emphasis on attention to detail (naming conventions, clean design files, working with grids, etc.)
  • Comfortable sketching ideas, but also confident in Sketch, Photoshop and Illustrator

About Us

Authentic F&F values extend around contemporary knowledge, progressive business practices and timeless service. We value independence of action and thought, and accept the responsibility needed to unabashedly pursue your passion. We seek out like-minded partners with the goal of bringing out the best in each other. We believe that the core of our role—whether we’re working for startups, forward-thinking businesses or creative agencies—is to analyze and adjust to changing situations and find extraordinary solutions for our clients’ everyday problems.

Our team leans on one another to be very communicative and collaborative in order to put out the best products we can.
