On some projects, we get to use our own in-house graphic design team, which means that we have much more control over the types of design assets you’ll be working from. Other times, all of the artwork comes from our clients’ graphic designers or even from other vendors our clients are working with.
Likewise, the layouts you’ll be creating will be used in a lot of different ways Jinja-based templates for web applications, files outputted by generators like Jekyll and Hugo, static files to be delivered over the web and even HTML-based emails. Don’t worry, though, your job isn’t to know how to extend HTML with Jinja syntax, develop with static site generators or run an email campaign (although if you can do any of those things, definitely let us know).
Your job is to write clean and responsive HTML and CSS that works across a host of target environments, includes HTML5 and CSS3 where applicable, is accessible (in the A11Y sense) and is Section 508-compliant when required.
Lastly, our projects include work for the federal government, Fortune 500s, nonprofits and small-to-medium businesses. Sometimes we even produce white-label deliverables for other dev shops, digital agencies and marketing companies. So while you’ll have the opportunity to work on cutting-edge layouts that push modern boundaries, you’ll also be asked to create things that adhere to the limitations of legacy technologies.
For this particular role, we’re also looking for somebody with the following background and skills:
Additionally, please tell us if you have any of the following:
We’ll present you with a list of highly-detailed and specific deliverables, clearly marked milestones and due dates. If you’re able to meet the milestones and due dates, we’ll ask you to tell us what you would charge us to complete the outlined work. We won’t ask you to estimate the number of hours you’ll spend doing the work, and we won’t ask you how you arrived at your price.
All we’re looking for from you is a final cost and a commitment to do the work. It’s that simple.
At the start of each month, you’ll invoice us for what you completed in the previous month and we’ll pay you for your work within 30 days.
