Arsenal Studios is growing and we are seeking a Mid Level Front-End Web Developer for a full time opportunity. This is a new, growth position. The immediate objective is to assist in development of our growing custom web design and development practice. We are seeking a candidate to help build highly customized WordPress & HubSpot websites, non-CMS based websites and webapps. Everything we do is custom. We are a boutique agency with a small and talented team of developers and designers that make good stuff for good clients.
Important: We are currently only able to hire North American residents. This is not a design or back-end development position, though interest in interdisciplinary work will be supported and nurtured.
In this position, the selected candidate will be working with our in-house designer to construct, customize and configure websites. Depending on your skillset, you may also be involved in development of web applications, interface animation, and dynamic content. We love new technologies and continually push ourselves to learn and grow, so be prepared to expand your skillset. See the “Tool Box” section for all the cool toys we play with.
You will be working with a talented team of developers and designers on fun and unique projects. We are waaaay different than your typical ad agency or web design company, and make this distinction as a point of pride. We hate how most agencies operate. You will be treated with respect and your time will be valued. Your labor will not be abused.
About Working for Arsenal Studios
Arsenal Studios is an ethical web design and development company staffed by a talented and thoughtful team. Since 2008, we have experienced growth and success due to our reputation for fair practices, honesty, and transparency. We care about our clients and are in close contact with them. We regularly work with the same client on a multitude of projects due to our depth of knowledge and problem solving skills.
You must be an honest, sincere, likable person and be adept at interacting with clients through phone, email, video chat. Here are some values that we all share:
Passion for learning: You must possess the mindset of an autodidact and have a zeal for knowledge sharing.
Accountability: Our clients expect us to deliver on time and on budget. Our team is only as strong as its weakest link.
Agility: You will be working on a variety of projects for clients in varying industries and tech stacks.
Positivity: We laugh way more than we grumble. Negative Nellies step back.
We have been a fully remote workplace since our inception in 2008 and can hire candidates throughout North America. We work during regular East Coast business hours with some flexibility in start and end times if needed. We supply you with a technology fund so that you can purchase the tools you need to bring the office to you.
Just so we are on the same page, here are some example projects that will help you understand the role:
CMS development – Work with a designer to implement design concepts and administrative UI for a WordPress site with Advanced Custom Fields or a HubSpot site with custom modules. Work with the rest of our dev team to build highly custom functionality for advanced client use.
College application system – Work with a small team of developers and designers to create a robust online application system interface and reporting console for administrators with a LAMP stack back end and a Bootstrap / Angular front-end.
Budgeting system – Work with a small team of developers and designers to create a Mint.com style budgeting system with a LAMP stack back end and a Bootstrap / Angular front-end.
Skills & Requirements
A promising portfolio that features your front-end programming skills (please include portfolio details in your cover letter)
2 – 10+ years experience developing complex web based interfaces. We are looking for a talented or promising developer. We don’t really care how long you have been in the industry if you are talented and fun to work with.
Things you should know or be prepared to learn:
Here are some platforms and technologies we regularly work with. Familiarity with any of these technologies is a plus and should be noted in your cover letter / resume:
We are a small, enthusiastic, and friendly team. We have amazing client and employee retention. We have some really unique and fun projects that may be unlike anything you have ever done before due to our roots in the education and nonprofit sectors.
This is a new, growth position. You will not be replacing anyone. We don’t hire often as our team is happy and stable, so this is a rare opportunity.
Also, in the intangible department, we are a friendly team that works closely together. We want the best for our employees. You will be treated with respect and your labor will not be abused. We truly care about the happiness and well-being of our team, and in turn, we all happily grow together.
Compensation & Benefits
One of the perks of being a small company is that we can tailor our benefits to your needs. We will offer a competitive salary for your region, we have high quality health insurance if you elect to participate, and you will get an annual tech fund to buy whatever you need. Why don’t you just tell us what you want in your cover letter and we will work it out collaboratively? Maybe you want more vacation time in exchange for a little less pay or your partner already has health insurance for your family and you want more money instead. Just let us know! We want you to feel empowered and supported so that you stick around for a long time.
A Safe and Supportive Workplace
Creating a diverse workplace has always been a priority at Arsenal Studios. As an agency delivering creative products for and marketing to a broad range of users, it is our responsibility to reflect our user base in our talent pool. Beyond that, we celebrate and encourage a workplace that is supportive of unique perspectives and backgrounds.
