Job Description:

Front End User Interface Developer/Engineer:

Games are fun.  Daily deals are interesting (and may even be profitable).  Cool group messaging technologies are... cool.

At Circle of Moms, we are building the technology and product that the next generation of moms will be using to raise their children.

It also happens that moms control the vast majority of household spending -- this is a very good business to be in.

We're looking for a UI developer with quick hands and detailed eyes to develop top of the line user experiences in a highly iterative fast-paced development cycle.  We're very quantitative and have an awesome homemade A/B testing platform that will allow you to really learn what works and what doesn't.  You'll own substantial pieces of the product, from design to implementation.

Sound interesting?  No fancy cover letter is needed, but a sentence or two about why you're interested in working with a growing iterative team to build out tech/product for moms would be really helpful for us.


Desired Skills & Experience:

You should have:
- Excellent hand-coded HTML and CSS skills
- Experience writing clean, unobtrusive Javascript/AJAX
- Experience integrating front-end code with server-side technology, ideally on a large-scale, dynamic website
- Experience using version control systems (CVS, Subversion)
- An entrepreneurial spirit
- A great eye for attractive user interface

We'd love it if you have:
- Experience with PHP
- Experience with Smarty
- Experience developing on Facebook
- Experience with Javascript libraries (JQuery) and debugging tools (Firebug)
- Familiarity and comfort with command-line applications
- Experience doing A/B tests (we are big fans)
- Experience gathering usability feedback
