We are looking for an experienced front end developer with excellent visual skills familiar with JAMstack technologies for a 4 week 'mobile first' web design and development project. You need to be experienced in both the creation/design and development phases. You will be familiar with using cloud based content management solutions and will also be able deploy the finished website into a live environment.
We're looking for a communicative fluent English speaker, and somebody that can work efficiently to tight deadlines, somebody structured and methodical able to deliver good quality design and robust code reasonably fast.
The project is a website for an events company, you will be provided with full branding guidelines, site map, text content, photos, and a basic home page wireframe.
Content of the site includes a lot of hero imagery, we are looking for a clean and graceful responsive design that is pixel perfect across multiple viewports. A good example of the kind look and feel we have in mind can be found here: [url removed, login to view] and [url removed, login to view]
The content will be available to the client’s marketing team through a headless CMS (such as DatoCMS, Netlify CMS, [url removed, login to view] etc.) with the final site generated via a static site generator.
You will create 2 different mobile design templates for the home page, based on the branding guidelines, and partly on the provided content.
After accepting one of two design templates, you will provide the full design of the site (including client's requests or modifications to a reasonable extent).
After full design is accepted you will develop the site in accordance with the design (again including client's requests or modifications to a reasonable extent).
Once the site is fully developed and accepted you will be asked to oversee the deployment on [url removed, login to view] and provide release notes.
