About You

We would like to see an established portfolio of professional and relevant work. We would like to hear what went wrong and what went right with all/most of them. If 'nothing went wrong', just remember 'honesty is the best policy'. Additionally we would love to see a body of personal 'passion' work if you have it, but it is not required.

We do not like know-it-alls, but we love folks that know a bunch.

Technical Experience

  • PHP & MySQL a must
  • Apache/mod_rewrite a huge plus 
  • Experience with CAKE PHP / Drupal / Zend would be wonderful, though experience with other frameworks is a definite plus 
  • Though you should know that framework zealots need not apply. We use a variety of solutions for the variety of problems we encounter
  • Deep understanding and comfort-level with writing/using Jquery. High aptitude for finding/using/implementing (and sometimes re-purposing) javascript plugins, as well as a willingness to learn how to create/write javascript from scratch using larger framework extensions such as backbone.js, etc. CSS mastery. 
  • SASS/Compass would be a huge plus.
  • A working knowledge with Git, and an (immediate) understanding of what Codebase is and how to learn how to use it.


  • High comfort level with extrapolating on themes and interpreting direction and feedback 
  • Listening ears. A willingness to hear, understand, and follow a plan.
  • Someone who knows how to disagree without arguing.
  • A good judge of estimating. And then 7 times out of 10, you need to be able/want to beat that by 20 percent or more.


  • Design experience
  • Knowledge of traditional and digital agency process and culture


  • No thanks!
