Senior Front End Developer

Senior Front End Developer’s Mission

Hi. We’re Jam3, a design and experience agency. We help modern brands launch their products and design new customer experiences in digital, and beyond.

Our team brings folks together from around the world. We have Strategy, Creative, Experience Design and Production all under one roof (four roofs, actually). This amazing fusion of talents lets us make things we could never make alone.

Innovating all day makes us pretty fun people to work with too. We’re curious about new ideas, we know how to make them happen, and we’re always there to support each other throughout the process.

If you like making good things even better you’ll fit right in.

As our new Senior Front-End Developer the work you’ll be doing will be forward thinking and require your expertise on the front-end to use existing languages, frameworks, libraries; all while using technical approaches. In order to be successful in this role you need to fully understand the Web Development life cycle.

You'll be responsible for upholding best practices; helping to define scopes, providing estimates,  crafting plans and leading your development team to bring beautiful websites to life for our clients worldwide. We're project-based, so we're always working with someone interesting,  be it adidas, Facebook, Google, Oculus,  Netflix, or Diageo.

Read on for details! We’re looking forward to meeting you.
