Overview

GSW is looking for a talented and energetic Senior Interactive Developer to join our NYC team.

 

A Senior Interactive Developer will work closely with tech leads (and at times lead development projects), project management and the creative team to execute pixel perfect front-end builds making key decisions on Javascript architecture, CSS strategy, HTML5/CSS3 design, web fonts, social networking integration, html best practices and responsive design.

 

This position will focus on front-end development, however an understanding of the back-end is desirable.  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 build scripts, managing SSL procurement, managing GIT repositories are an absolute must.

 

Experience in web animation (GSAP, Three.js) and concepts like parallax scrolling are highly desired. This job is within the Creative Technology department, and candidates should have an understanding/experience in creating web and app based visual experiences that go beyond a traditional website.

 

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.

Responsibilities

Client Management:

Candidate may occasionally be asked to field questions from the client in person, on calls or via email.

 

Communication Skills:

Excellent verbal and written skills. Must be able to interact and collaborate on an individual or group setting. Able to escalate issues, both technical and timing, in a professional and clear manor.

 

Explain sensitive and complicated issues such as graceful degradation / cross-browser compatibility to other non-technical teams such as account and production.

 

Project Management/Execution:

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.

 

Advertising Skills:

Understand the pace of advertising. Things move quickly, ideas are fluid and need to be guided home in a calm, professional and optimistic manor.

 

People/Teamwork/Corporate Citizenship:

Must be a good communicator with people both above and below. The Senior 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.

 

Delegated Authority:

Senior Developer will have authority to delegate to team based on a given project’s requirements.

Job Requirements

• Bachelors degree. Computer Science Degree Preferred, or comparable experience
