“Do you speak people?”

It’s a language many healthcare companies have forgotten - a simple clear way to communicate great ideas that break through because everyone can understand it. No Jargon. No lingo. No catch phrase of the day. We are GSW and speaking people is at the core of everything we do. We are a healthcare advertising agency that thinks just a bit differently, works just a bit closer and dives just a bit deeper. And because we talk to each other like people, instead of a corporate machine, we come up with great ideas that talk to clients and customers on the most effective level of all – the human level. 


The Freelance Developer will work closely with tech leads, project management and the creative team to execute pixel perfect front-end builds making key decisions on Javascript architecture, CSS strategy, HTML5/CSS3 degradation, web fonts, social networking integration, html best practices and responsive design.

This position will focus on front-end development, and as such the candidate should have a solid working knowledge and ability to execute on modern web frameworks such as Bootstrap/Foundation & boilerplate. Along with that, having expertise in leveraging grunt/gulp build scripts are an absolute must.

Job Requirements

The candidate possesses good verbal and written communication skills and demonstrates a talent for teamwork and collaboration. A desire and excitement to explore new technology is a must.

• Accurately predict development timelines, be able to stick to them and react quickly to change.
• Ability to "own" a project by helping to identify missing pieces and solutions.
• The Interactive Developer is the first line of defense for the integrity of the build - a friendly/open working relationship with team members and vendor partners is an absolute must.
• Understand the pace of advertising. Things move quickly, ideas are fluid and need to be guided home in a calm, professional and optimistic manor.
• Explain sensitive and complicated issues such as graceful degradation / cross-browser compatibility to other non-technical teams such as account and production.
• Ability to handle client communication via email, phone, or in person when necessary


• Bachelor’s degree. Computer Science Degree Preferred, or comparable experience
• 3-5 years’ experience, preferably at an advertising agency or a start up
• Expert in OO JS, HTML, CSS3, mobile best practices, social media integration.
• Experienced in using LESS/SASS, leveraging gulp/grunt for builds.
• Expertise in working with GIT, both on an individual level and with teams.
• Experience integrating with a CMS (wordpress, drupal, sitecore)
