Now Hiring: Web Developer & Programmer
So you love HTML5. You're psyched that the IE9 beta looks so promising, because you've got enough IE6 war stories, though personally you're rocking the latest Firefox nightly. Sometimes you can't remember what life was like before jQuery, but in a pinch you're prepared to roll your own library. (Which, let's face it, makes you feel a little like MacGyver, and you like working with folks who notice.) And you've spent a lot of time noodling with @font-face. A lot. Is this you? Come and work among kindred spirits: H&FJ is looking for a full-time front-end developer to make a significant contribution to the ever-evolving typography.com. Position filled!
You can feel when things are built correctly, and can smell a kludge at fifty paces. You know how to run a test and assess its results, and how to shepherd your source-controlled code all the way from development to release. You're someone who likes to reduce a problem down to a set of tasks, and you're intimately familiar with the sense of accomplishment that comes from seeing all the parts come together. You write modular code because you hate doing the same thing twice, but you're always up for doing something five different ways just to be sure. And your middle name is LAMP. If this is you, come join us as a full-time web programmer at Hoefler & Frere-Jones. Position filled!
