We’re Hiring: Front-End Developer

Written by Megan Notarte on

We’re searching for a versatile and enthusiastic Front-End Developer to join our small team of multi-disciplinary web experts in lovely downtown Portland!

If you love the web, solving complex problems, assessing new technologies and teaching what you learn in writing or in person, you’d be a great fit for Cloud Four. As a Front-end Developer, you’ll work directly with our clients to understand their objectives, shape project direction and craft applications that make the most of the web to solve real problems for real end users.

We’re looking for someone who appreciates and understands the entire web stack’s role in delivering world-class, polished and performant experiences. Our ideal candidate has a particular focus on JavaScript (but is happy implementing non-JavaScript solutions) and has experience and interest in Progressive Web Apps.

If you appreciate great design in addition to development, you’ll find a home here. All of our designers code, with most of our design work happening in the browser. All team members are encouraged to participate in ideation, sketching and design feedback regardless of the project phase.

We provide a positive and creative workplace where people can do their best work. We value the unique contributions of every member of the Cloud Four team. We welcome and seek diverse opinions and backgrounds.

We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.

We’re not interested in startup insanity. We support our families with reasonable hours, flexible schedules, and the ability to work from home when needed. We offer benefits including medical, dental, vision, parental leave and a retirement savings plan for all full-time employees.

We’re a small web consultancy with big aspirations. We started Mobile Portland, organized Responsive Field Day and host a community device testing lab. We wrote the book on Progressive Web Apps. Our articles are frequently cited by some of the web’s most influential voices. We speak at conferences, participate in web standards setting, and contribute to open source software. We like exploring the frontiers of what’s possible on the web and sharing what we learn.

If this sounds like you, we’d love to hear from you. Please send your resume and a cover letter explaining why you’re the right person to join our team to jobs@cloudfour.com. US-based candidates only, with preference given to Portland-based candidates. Those seeking full-time employment as well as contractors are invited to apply.

Experience and skills we’re seeking

  • 3 or more years of relevant technical experience or related background.
  • Keen focus on JavaScript, with an emphasis on application design, architecture, performance, testing and security.
  • Experience with entire web stack (HTML5, CSS, Web APIs, build tools, etc.)
  • A background using Node.js, Vue.js, React, and/or other performant JavaScript frameworks would be a beneficial.
  • Some programming experience in at least one additional web language: PHP and/or Ruby are ideal.
  • Strong problem solving and analysis skills.

If you think you fall just short of what we’re looking for, consider applying anyway. We appreciate diverse perspectives and non-traditional journeys.
