Recent code samples will be requested during the interview process.

Responsibilities:

Plan, execute and communicate your work on one of several applications within the DI portfolio or on the platform that drives them all.
Be accountable and manage your own time; we don’t watch the clock, we just want kick-ass work.
Participate actively in the entire dev process, from ideation to testing and release; we’re a small group and we need people who can contribute in a variety of ways.
Demonstrate your work regularly to the rest of the team and the rest of the company.

Required Qualifications:

Experience with Agile development process

Compensation:
Salary is determined based on your qualifications and your location -- we pay market rates for your area, not for ours. If you are one of our ideal candidates, let’s talk about how to make this the perfect job for you.

How to Apply:
We did not make it obvious on purpose. As the first step in the interview process, please use your HEAD to figure it out. :)

Telecommute (work from home) or from our Denver, Colorado office in the beautiful Taxi district.

Overview:
Digitally Imported is seeking a Senior Front-end Web Developer for a full-time position in the Product Development group. This is a permanent position with a thriving music company... Also, you get to work from home. We need a well-rounded front-end dev with at least 5 years of experience. The ideal candidate will be able to manage their own time and regularly produce quality code (read: working from home isn’t for everyone). Recent code samples will be requested during the interview process.

It's worth emphasizing that this is, first and foremost, a development position. We're not looking for a designer who can write some HTML and CSS; we need a front-end heavyweight. Someone who has at least working knowledge of code outside the UI (ideally Ruby), but who has a mastery of modern approaches to writing serious Javascript, HTML 5 and CSS 3 by hand and using frameworks like jQuery and Bootstrap.

Responsibilities:

Plan, execute and communicate your work on one of several user interfaces within the DI portfolio (di.fm, sky.fm, jazzradio.com, rockradio.com, and more to come).
Be accountable and manage your own time; we don’t watch the clock, we just want kick-ass work.
Participate actively in the entire dev process, from ideation to testing and release; we’re a small group and we need people who can contribute in a variety of ways.
Demonstrate your work regularly to the rest of the team and the rest of the company.

Qualifications:

HTML 5/CSS 3
jQuery
5+ years web development experience
Mastery of HTML/CSS and Javascript, including common libraries/frameworks
Proficiency in Photoshop; at least enough to produce UI assets from a design
A passion for music (some kind, any kind)

Knowledge of the following is highly desirable:

Ruby/Rails
git/github
#!/bin/bash
Agile development process

Compensation:
Salary is determined based on your qualifications and your location -- we pay market rates for your area, not for ours. If you are one of our ideal candidates, let’s talk about how to make this the perfect job for you.

I can't seem to figure the test out. I guess I'm not A-Class material for them.

Honestly, the <head> element just contains off-site app handling scripts, a login form, and metadata.

Can anyone point me in the right direction at least? Should I analyze the JS more closely?

How are you supposed to give recent examples of your work, when you work for a private company.

You can show people what you are capable of doing in a variety of ways. Show them programs you've written in the past or write something for them. Give them a design proposal or a preliminary business plan for an idea that can either save them money or reduce costs. What company isn't interested in that?

If a company wants to dive into new technology areas, you can show them and tell them examples of areas you know and how you could design, develop, test (etc.) new technology ideas.

You could also propose a Proof of Concept (PoC) for one of your ideas, present it to them, and if they like it, negotiate for a job; lots of ways to do it; these are just a few sketchy ideas that may get you thinking...
