We are looking for skilled web developers who are interested in building the future of intelligent news using the latest web technologies and practices. At Zite, you will have the opportunity to be involved in every step of the development including prototyping, bug fixing, and large-scale feature development. We have a small development team, so your ideas and talents will directly impact the product, and our nonhierarchical structure means you will have the ability to influence areas of the product far beyond your title.
The most important quality you can possess is raw programming ability and a vigurous appetite for learning new skills. That said, we would be inclined toward candidates who have:
- HTML5/CSS3/jQuery experience
- Knowledge of modern web client development (for instance, using Backbone.js)
- Experience optimizing sites for performance, especially on mobile devices
- Experience developing hardware-accelerated animations and transitions
- A sense for quality user experience and UI
- Comfort with a fast-paced environment
