  • Commit to the best customer service — go above and beyond.
  • Manage responsibilities without micromanagement. Able to move projects along with good a quick yet effective pace.

What are we looking for? Here’s a list to start out–

Regular Responsibilities:

  • Both coaching and collaboration with other developers

Again, this list isn’t intended to describe an exhaustive list of the day in and day out experience in the office. It’s to describe the general content and requirements of the position.

If you think that you’ve got the right stuff for the position, get in touch.

We are looking to make a quick decision, so if you’re interested, get to typing. Based on last round of web dev apps, we may or may not get to see all applicants, but we will let you know when we make our decision. Send over your resume, portfolio, work history to [email protected] No calls or stop-bys please. . . only ’cause we’re busy, remember?!

Creativity goes a long way, of course, but don’t skip out on the substance, k? — we like a good laugh, and that’ll help to fit in here, but we also need to see your skills. This is a full-time position that requires onsite work with our team. Only looking for current Colorado residents. NOT looking for remote work for this position. (At all. Really. No, you’re probably not the exception… we usually have to trash 20+ apps at a time when hiring. Not looking for long-distance developer relationships. Or hookups. Wait… do I need to mention that here too?) But if you think you match up with us, and are interested, do the equivalent of swiping right.
