Description

Grasswire

Grasswire is a real-time newsroom that's curated and fact-checked by everyone. We're funded by our dream team of investors, and work remotely -- spread across the United States (New York, Utah and San Francisco). We're turning the news entirely over to everyday people, and we want you to join us.

Job Description

We're looking for a Front-End Web Developer to join our small but world-class team in a fast paced, high-energy environment.

You'll be responsible for rapidly turning designs into working HTML/CSS/JavaScript that works on most browsers and screen sizes, and for communicating well with the other team members across miles and time zones.

Sorry, we're not hiring contractors, shops, agencies, or anyone outside of the United States at this time.

What We're Looking For

  • Experience writing semantic HTML, CSS and JavaScript
  • Experience writing jQuery
  • Hard-working self-starter
  • Excellent communication skills
  • Proficiency with Git
  • Proficiency with Chrome Developer Tools
  • Passion for doing things the right way -- a defendable opinion on what comprises the "right way" is a major plus
  • Passionate about freedom of information

Bonus Points

  • Experience with Play Framework or other MVC frameworks
  • Experience with Java or Scala
  • Experience building real-time software
  • Experience with SASS
  • Discerning between Arial and Helvetica

What Your Day Will Look Like

  • Brief meeting to sync with rest of team (call it scrum if you must)
  • Go off and crank on your own project, checking in with other team members throughout the day
  • Reach out to other team members whenever you're stuck
  • Participate in code reviews with the senior web developer

Perks

  • Competitive salary
  • No more commute
  • Unlimited vacation time/time off
  • Ownership of a product that is used by thousands daily
  • Working with a team of (we think) smart, driven individuals
  • Stock options
