We’re Hiring: Front-end Developer

Written by Megan Notarte on

We’re searching for an enthusiastic and talented Front-end Developer to join our small team in downtown Portland.

If you love the web, solving complex problems and writing or speaking about what you learn and think, you’d be a great fit at 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 what the web can do.

We’re looking for someone who is crackerjack at JavaScript and the other building blocks of Progressive Web Apps, but who isn’t scared of putting things together on the back end or taking on other technical tasks needed to bring a web-based applications to bear.

And if you appreciate great design in addition to development, you’ll find a home here. We pride ourselves on the fact that team members contribute in many ways on projects. Our designers code and some of our developers have attended art school.

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.

We’re a small web consultancy with big aspirations. We started Mobile Portland, organized Responsive Field Day and host a community device testing lab. 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.
