Front End Developer - HTML, CSS, Sass

Sawhorse Media is looking for a talented front-end developer to join the team at Muck Rack. Muck Rack is a software-as-a-service product that connects journalists with PR pros, companies and sources. You’ll be working on important user-facing features alongside the design, tech and product management teams.

About This Position

We're looking for someone who has extensive HTML, CSS, and Sass expertise, a good design/UI sense, and some Javascript skills. If you're primarily a server-side software engineer, check out one of our other job listings.

You'll be successful if you:

  • Craft well-structured, modular, and clean Sass and HTML, based on wireframes and designs provided by UI designers.
  • Can work with Sass at scale on a large site, and are familiar with tools and workflows appropriate for a large code base.
  • Can refactor and streamline Sass with a focus on maintainability of code, including naming conventions, modular organization, and the principle of DRY.
  • Can build and maintain live style guides.
  • Have a good UI design sense, and are capable of implementing wireframes provided by designers in HTML and Sass.
  • Are an expert at creating responsive styles that render well at different screen sizes and devices.
  • Know how to accommodate different browsers and versions, and are good at cross-browser testing.
  • Have some JavaScript/jQuery experience. Frameworks such as Backbone are not required, but would be a plus.
  • Have familiarity with the basics of the Mac terminal and command line.
  • Know how to use git and Github, and have experience working with other team members on projects using git.
  • Enjoy working with and collaborating with visual designers, developers, and product managers.
