Work with the marketing team to translate visual concepts and design specs into clean, fast-loading, SEO-compliant front-end solutions.

What you need to know:
Minimum of 3-5+ years experience developing web sites; e-commerce experience recommended.

Familiarity with the Model-View-Controller (MVC) concepts.

Familiarity with modifying existing sites for mobile platforms is a plus; we're seeing an increase in visits via iPhone and Android devices.
Drupal and Wordpress development/hacking/wrestling is a plus.
Advanced knowledge of SEO (beyond the meta tag) and internet marketing (e.g. A/B testing, tracking complex campaigns) a bonus.
