16 May Experienced Web Developer
SIX12 Creative is an established creative agency looking for an experienced Web Developer to join to join our small, quirky family.
This is not a junior-level position. We are looking for someone who can immediately help us plow through programming work. Obviously there is always a learning curve when starting a new job, but you should be confident enough in your programming skills to pick up the frameworks and languages you need as you go. Since we are not a corporate environment, there is a reasonable degree of flexibility in the technologies the dev team chooses to use. We try to use open-source tools whenever possible.
Team fit is critical. We're a small, quirky, family with low turnover. If you want to be part of a big corporate agency, we're not a good fit for you. Less than half of our projects are on the "cookie cutter" side - so there's a fair bit of variety in what we do. Several of our team members have described working at SIX12 as “finally finding a home where they feel comfortable to be themselves.”
When you look us up, keep in mind that our website doesn't tell our whole story. For three decades, we've continually evolved to offer different marketing and technology solutions to our clients. Sometimes our most recent strategies aren’t publicized right away. For example, we have a SaaS product running across North America, we recently built a Facebook Messenger bot as part of a contest entry system, and we're working on a 1-to-1 text message marketing system – none of which are on our website yet.
Wondering if you’re qualified?
You should have most, if not all, of these basics:
- you don't re-write everyone else code because it wasn't done your way
- you bounce your solutions off other team members before implementing them
- you have a reasonable handle on estimating time and risk
- you've written a custom module for some kind of CMS
- you've had some bad experiences with SQL bottlenecks
- you've had some bad experiences with Git merge
- you produce clean, readable code
- you can translate between geek and business speak, written and oral
- you probably DON'T have Microsoft certifications
Additional skills that would give you an advantage:
- you have experience with Drupal
- you have experience with SaaS
- you've worked on a product team
- you can do IA
- you understand good UI/UX
- you have experience hardening web servers
- you've spent a lot of time swearing at email servers
This is an intermediate to senior position with compensation that fits your experience. Most applicants should have a minimum of 5 years of relevant experience. That being said, if you’re really good, feel free to convince us you're the right fit for the team.
Part-time contract to start, ideally 3 regular days per week with the hopes of growing to full-time after a successful training period. Open to some remote work, but the majority of time will be in-office.
