Web Developer

Do you have a passion for working in an environment that you absolutely love each day? We have an exciting position that has opened at a top creative advertising agency in Charlotte, NC.

If you want to be apart of a team that makes a difference and has purpose….. make sure you reach out to us!

As a member of the Theory Communication & Design team, the web developer will be responsible for the development and support of new and existing web and mobile applications. By using a solid foundation in object-oriented programming, this individual will code and maintain applications written in the following programming/scripting languages: HTML, CSS, PHP, JavaScript, and jQuery.

Theory Communication and Design is privately owned by a young local business man that loves the Charlotte community and often looks for ways to give back. The culture of the company is extremely important to Theory and finding fun like minded team members is a top priority.

You’ll work for some of the world’s largest corporations and have a great team to work with. It’s a lot of fun, but with a good amount of responsibility, all while being surrounded by some of the most talented people you’ve ever met. We thank you for taking the time to see if you’d like to help us help others.

Responsibilities:

/ Develop compelling and cutting-edge web applications.

/ Content-management system based programming and web application development.

/ Communicate, practice, and enforce code standards.

/ Work with the in house creative team to develop needed creative assets for digital experiences.

/ Test, maintain, and troubleshoot new and existing digital properties.

Desired Skills and Experiences:

/ Demonstrated development experience with Wordpress or a similar CMS (Squarespace, Drupal).

/ Proficiency in HTML5, CSS, PHP, JavaScript, AJAX and jQuery.

/ Experience working with API's: Google, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, etc.

/ Ability to transform conceptual Photoshop files into webpages, including manipulating PSD's into web-ready images.

/ Ability to work in a fast-paced, high-energy environment and meet deadlines while maintaining a high level of professional standards and quality.

/ Ability to function in a small team and wear many hats in order to get the job done.

/ Excellent interpersonal and teamwork skills, written and oral communications skills.

/ Demonstrated organizational, analytical, and problem-solving skills.

/ Ability to play a mean game of Corn Hole. Or sabotage the other team trying to play.

Technologies We Use:

/ Wordpress / Squarespace / Drupal: CMS, like the previously mentioned, serve as a backend for the vast majority of web properties we create, from small blogs to large corporate websites and Facebook apps.

/ GIT: Every piece of code that is developed at Theory is connected to a GIT repository. Changes are well-documented so that at any point another team member may take over development.

/ SASS: Enables us to create clean structured CSS code with the ability to reuse blocks of CSS between sites and define variables that will be used repeatedly in a stylesheet. Not only does this make the writing of CSS more efficient, but also speeds up any updates or changes to colors or common styles in a site.

/ Bootstrap: For responsive web development and a pre-defined starting point on commonly used styles, buttons, etc. While we rarely just use the default styles as-is, Bootstrap serves as a starting point or fancy zeroing for the site on which we may tweak the colors or font faces.

The above is just a small sampling of the technologies we use in development at Theory. As is the case with the ever-changing technology landscape, these tools may change at any time as better or more efficient tools present themselves.

Ultimately, we want you to be so dedicated to over-delivering on every task and so dedicated to our team that you grow far beyond the scope of this position here at Theory.
You are our future, and we want you to show us that future. There is a ceiling to this whole business on what you can accomplish – and the person that sets that ceiling is YOU! The ball will constantly be in your court. You will have all the chances in the world to shine and to be a part of one amazing youthfully-minded and continuously-evolving creative agency.

But it all starts with making a difference in someone’s life. If you need to do that to be happy, you’ll be happy with us.
