JOB ROLE

Ask Front End Developers what’s on their mind, and the answer is: code. They make the two-dimensional multi-dimensional and really fun to experience. They are able to walk the line between code junkie and artist and make beautiful unions between form and function. The partnership Front End Developers enjoy with Back End Developers is a match made in cyber-heaven. In the infinite time and space of the web and cloud, server-side meets database and application engineering to create the digital innovations and interactive events we’ve come to expect and even crave.

Front-end developers are responsible for delivering web and mobile experiences that look and perform superbly across all platforms. This position involves using the latest front-end web technologies to develop code alongside a team of developers (both front and back-end, with different platform specialties).

Collaboration and subject matter expertise: The ultimate goal is to work with other UCD specialists to create digital experiences that inform, inspire and delight, regardless of channel or audience type. The Front End Developer will also work closely with UX Consultants, Technical Architects and client-side staff to interpret user requirements and create appropriate solutions that deliver tangible results.

The front-end developer facilitates dialogue between internal and external clients and teams, and communicates technical information, functionality, and limitations to non-technical teams. This role works closely with both external clients and internal, cross-functional teams on projects that range from a few weeks to a few months in length.
