In this role, you would translate visual comps/mockups using HTML5, JavaScript (including jQuery), and Sass to build responsive web sites for our company and our partners (like CNET, TIME, and AutoGuide).

Other team members working on our projects are using .NET (mostly), AngularJS (a wee bit), and WordPress (occasionally), so any familiarity with those things is helpful, but not necessary.

In addition, if you have experience or interest in the following, the job may also include:
