Bauer Xcel Media is the rapidly-growing digital arm of Bauer Publishing, a venerable print publisher. We have had great success with our online properties, and we are looking to grow!
The job is open both to folks working in NYC and also to full-time remote, but only full-time remote in the US and Canada.
What You Will Do
Your duties will be to collaborate with a product team in NYC, and a development team distributed along the East coast (Philadelphia, New York, New Jersey, and Ontario.) in order to make performant, standards-compliant, beautiful and flexible websites.
Benefits of working with us: Our repositories are carefully maintained. We try to keep our code DRY and readable, and to keep our tech debt low. We offer a high degree of collaboration and input into how to do what you're doing.
Recently, we've been using SMACSS, Backbone and Bootstrap. Since almost all of our applications power multiple sites, we try to make sure our code works across multiple templates, and that each module of code is kicked up as high in the pyramid as it should be (but no higher.)
Your job will be to discuss new features with product owners and senior developers, evaluate not only how the request could be coded but also how it should be coded, reach consensus, and then get to work building beautiful, performant code that you can look at a year later and still maintain a smile.
