Employer: Sparkbox


We’re always keeping our eyes out for great people—always looking, carefully hiring. The right person loves collaboration with coworkers and clients and believes it leads to the best work. The right builder also wants to work in a learning-hungry web environment and help lead the web industry by sharing. Sparkbox has been intentionally working to build a team where we acknowledge our own imperfections, make all feel welcome, and humbly help each other grow.

If you’re right for this position, you have solid knowledge of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript (and applicable browser support) while being mindful of the diverse ecosystem of devices and connections. You care about and are eager to learn the details of deployment, commit history, refactoring, design patterns, and other development practices. You understand the value of design systems throughout the product design and development lifecycle and are willing to dig deep on this topic. You have a standards-centric view of the web, know its limitations and possibilities, and care about performance and progressive enhancement.

You will be expected to help craft solutions to client needs, recognizing the constraints of each unique situation. You’ll work with our team of designers and developers to turn those solutions into high-quality, well-tested websites and applications that are accessible to as many people as possible.

We’re looking for applicants with at least some level of professional web development experience. If you haven’t quite gained the professional experience needed to be a great fit for this particular Frontend Developer position, we recommend that you apply instead for our Full-Stack Developer Apprenticeship.


We’re actively looking for individuals that will bring a diverse perspective to the Sparkbox office. Passion and humility are vital, as you’ll work directly with our designers, project managers, and other developers at Sparkbox. You’ll also interact with clients and should feel comfortable presenting work. You’ll need to be hungry to learn new things, advance your skills, and push to find new processes.

A few things you could spend your days with:

  • JavaScript, Typescript, and frameworks such as React, Angular, Vue, Ember, and Express
  • CSS, Sass, and CSS-in-JS built responsively for many browsers
  • Clean, semantic HTML
  • Git, Github, CircleCI, Netlify, and Heroku
  • Dynamic Pattern Libraries, Design Systems, Storybook
  • Accessibility (WCAG 2.1 AA or higher) and Progressive Enhancement
  • WordPress, Drupal, ExpressionEngine, and more
  • Work closely with designers to translate designs to code
  • Test-Driven Development
  • Continuous Integration and Delivery
  • Potential to lead project teams in partnership with client developers
  • Not required but a bonus if you have PHP or Ruby experience
  • Share your learnings on the Sparkbox blog—Check out The Foundry
