TrendyMinds: Web Developer
Headquarters: Indianapolis, IN and Tampa, FL
We’re searching for a bright, energetic developer to join our creative and development teams to bring complex websites to life — all while being mindful of the latest development trends and keeping both the client’s goals and the end-user in mind.
As a developer at TrendyMinds, you will:
- Be performance and accessibility-focused to make our Lighthouse scores as close to 100 as possible!
- Work with CMSs like Craft CMS, WordPress, and ExpressionEngine.
- Build out front-end interfaces using frameworks and libraries like React, Tailwind CSS, and Alpine.js.
- Use templating languages like Twig, JSX, and Handlebars.
- Be comfortable (but not an expert in) working in environments that use Node.js and PHP.
- Heavily use both Git and GitHub for our deployment workflow and code review processes.
- Be part of a team of other individuals who love to collaborate and continue growing their capabilities.
- Have opportunities to expand our capabilities and help us grow to the next level.
A snapshot of what it's like to work at TrendyMinds:
- Collaborating with our design team. While our solid team of UI/UX designers creates designs that people will gush over, the more you have a basic understanding of Sketch and Photoshop, the better. From time to time, we might ask you to provide technical insight to our web team.
- Nerd out with data and process. Know how to scale websites as they increase in traffic and complexity, and understand the importance of progressive enhancement and graceful degradation.
- Be a catalyst. Be vigilant about web standards, performance, accessibility, and usability by researching and providing recommendations on services/technologies for various projects. We’ll also want you to be cognizant of site performance and speed, including best practices for reducing HTTP requests, browser repaints, and mobile overhead.
- Juggling master. You should be able to handle multiple projects and deadlines while also being focused enough to remain committed to those that span multiple months. Bonus points for actual juggling.
- Stunning interactions. You should be able to show how you think in development as it relates to UI/UX. Show us what you’ve been working on!
- Troubleshooting skills. Yeah, we want you to be able to figure it out, whatever “it” is.
- Taste matters. Our clients come to us because we care about making them look amazing to their customers. Show us that you know what people like.
- Start to finish. You can go from brainstorming with the team to delivering thoughtful mockups for all digital platforms. You can see a project through to completion, no matter what obstacles stand in your way.
- Stick to the budget. Not only are you wise with our clients’ money, but you also know how to accurately quote your work.
- Don’t procrastinate. Initiate. You know how to suggest and spearhead development. Your ideas matter here. We expect you to put them into action when you see an unfulfilled need.
- Be a team player. Participate in internal meetings on behalf of client accounts — and be willing to jump into the fray when help is needed. We expect you to follow our standards while working in the pipeline with other team members, including the UI/UX team.
If you have a great personality, enjoy cracking difficult problems, and are an all-around team superstar, you’ll go far with our agency. If you're wondering what makes TrendyMinds a great place to work, check out some of the perks here. Join us — we're excited to meet you!
