Senior Front End Developer

 
Whiz. Savant. Ace. Master. If any of these words have ever been used to describe your design and development skills, you might be a guru. If you love learning and mastering new challenges in new environments, in whole new industries you might be a guru. 
 
And if you can take a brand new technology that will transform the health and fitness industry for good from concept through deployment without a boss to tell you what to do, then you might just be the next Senior Front End Developer at YourGuru.com.
 
The gig
YourGuru.com’s Senior Front End Developer will be exalted as a proud member and leader of the company’s inner circle. Your self-direction and ability to seamlessly handle ambiguity will guide you on your quest to deliver to market a cutting-edge technology that will turn the health and fitness industry on its ear.
In this role, you’ll be responsible for creating, managing, and refining how the world interacts with our platform. Your thirst for an environment free of restrictive rules, policies, and procedures will drive you to test, retest, and deploy innovative features and engaging user interactions that will fuel user adoption through a world-class online experience.
There’s no doubt about it:  you’ll be one of the big men or women on campus. The top of the food chain. You’ll pave the ultimate path for health and fitness professionals to dramatically improve their businesses. You’ll provide the creative genius behind novel client-side apps and beautiful, streamlined user interactions. And you’ll help set the tone and establish a culture in a nascent community of driven, passionate businesspeople intent on creating opportunity for themselves and others.
 
We can’t promise that you’ll be the key to enlightenment, but you will be the model by which all other developers and designers will be measured as we grow and expand.
 
What it takes:
·         Creative thinker with big ideas and no fear of rejection
·         Self-directed, intrinsically motivated to succeed
·         Thrive as the leader of the pack
·         Track record of shipped digital products
·         Seeking ground-floor opportunity and a “do-what-it-takes” attitude
·         5 years general front end development experience, with specific experience with JavaScript apps, JQuery, Underscore, or Zepto
·         Exceptional HTML (HTML5) and CSS3 skills.
·         Working experience with server-side templating languages, Git source control, and Grunt.js task runner
·         Prior use of client-side MVC frameworks such as Backbone.js, Ember.js, or Angular.js required
·         Experience with social media SDK, analytics services, and Django web framework a huge plus
·         Previous work in building accessible, standards-compliant websites; cross-browser testing; and responsive design is highly desirable
