We are hiring: Front-end Developer in Austin Texas and New York City

Front-end Developers are critical to everything we do at Black & Black. They are actively involved throughout the project lifecycle, often times starting with rapid prototypes early in the design phase. In some cases, the end goal is high-fidelity prototypes, but most of the time the developers will ultimately be writing clean, production-ready code, which will be integrated with the backend/APIs and refined via the QA process. A Front-end Developer will remain engaged through the launch to ensure that everything functions and performs at the highest level.

Our Front-end Developers must work very closely with the design team, not only to identify gaps and vet the designs for feasibility, but also to help inform the experience design through a technical lens. This is particularly important in the increasingly responsive web, where developers and designers need to work hand-in-hand to find solutions to a wide range of design challenges.
