Overview

What We Need

 

We need an experienced developer to join our diverse and talented front-end team, and help us build forward-thinking web solutions that are fast, WCAG accessible, user-friendly, and beautiful (both on the surface and under the hood). Your work at Velir can help our clients improve global health, drive changes in policing, promote the health and well-being of children, and more. In short, your code has a chance to really mean something.

 

Why You Should Join

 

In joining the Velir front end team, you'll become an important part of a small but dedicated development group. We strive to provide a sensible working environment that endorses healthy work hours, and we offer flexible remote work options. We have a progressive parental leave policy, offer paid volunteer days, and vacation time is not just encouraged, but celebrated.

 

We believe that high-performing teams include people from different backgrounds and experiences who can challenge each other's assumptions with fresh perspectives. To that end, we actively seek a diverse pool of applicants, including those from historically marginalized groups. If you’re from a background that’s underrepresented in tech, we’d particularly love to meet you.

Responsibilities

What You’ll Get To Do

 

In this position, you’ll get to:

  • Work with modern web frameworks (React, Vue.js, and others) and advanced CSS to create websites, components, APIs, and animations
  • Mentor, coach, and offer support to junior developers
  • Collaborate with teams across Velir (from design to backend), helping to vet requirements, evaluate designs, and implement functional specs
  • Create documentation around processes, to make life easier for other developers (or maybe future you!)
  • Engage with your front-end teammates, by actively contributing to Slack channels, asking questions, and sharing ideas
  • Assess and estimate development effort for the business development and client services team

Skills & Qualifications

What You Bring to the Table

  • Deep knowledge in HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript (both vanilla and framework-flavored)
  • Empathy, to collaborate with your teammates, and to ensure all people can use our websites (WCAG accessibility knowledge is a big plus)
  • Courage, to speak up about roadblocks, raise risks, and suggest a course of action
  • Curiosity about — and enthusiasm for — the front-end field. Agency work moves fast, and the ability to pick new technologies up quickly will be key!
  • Communication skills, to explain technical concepts effectively to team members or clients

What We Use

  • As our clients have many different needs, we use many tools, frameworks, and platforms. This is not a hard list of requirements, but instead a peek into what our developers might be working with on any given project:
    • React Hooks, Vue.js, Angular
    • SCSS, Gulp, Webpack, node/npm, Git, Jenkins
    • Sitecore, AEM, Drupal, Contentful, Gatsby, Next.js
    • Storybook, PatternLab, data visualizations with tools like D3, web animation, web performance

Physical Requirements

  • Frequent sitting at a desk performing work on a computer
  • Reasonable accommodations may be made to enable individuals with disabilities to perform the essential functions

Core Company Values

 

Velir is an established mid-sized agency with a top-tier portfolio of clients, ranging from the world’s largest non-profits to Fortune 500 brands. We pride ourselves on our people-first culture and a low-ego workplace that embraces experimentation, collaboration and continuous improvement. We offer flexible work locations, competitive pay, and excellent benefits.

  • Take the Long View - Ensure the company is built to last
  • Be Courageous - Make the right decisions even when they aren't the easiest decisions
  • Be Genuine - Bring honesty and authenticity to all that you do
  • Work with Focus + Passion - Display purpose and pride in your work and never stop learning

At this time, Velir does not sponsor candidates and unfortunately cannot accept those on OPT or CPT.
