The central communications office of one of the nationâ™s top three public universities seeks a Front-End Developer to join a four-person digital team. The Front-End Developer would work alongside a Back-End and a Lead Developer to execute digital, search and content strategy for the Universityâ™s main institutional platforms. The successful candidate should be motivated to combine the art of design with the art of programming, and will need to be able to translate flat design files to clean, accessible user experiences. In addition to the Digital team, the Front-End Developer will work in partnership with Art Directors and content producers in a collaborative environment that is both demanding and supportive.
Founded by Thomas Jefferson, the University of Virginia opened in 1825 as the nation's first public university. A longstanding dedication to preeminence in both scholarship and teaching; top ranking in global satisfaction, collegiality and work/family issues on the COACHE survey of early career faculty; a commitment to excellence that is integrally connected with diversity and a broad array of benefits make the University of Virginia a prime choice for both faculty and staff. The University of Virginia is located in the small cosmopolitan city of Charlottesville near the Blue Ridge Mountains, 70 miles from Richmond and 110 miles from Washington, D.C. The University of Virginia remains the No. 2 best public university in the 2013 edition of the U.S. News and World Report rankings. In the 14 years since U.S. News began ranking public universities as a separate category, U.Va. has ranked either No. 1 or No. 2. U.Va. continues to rank in the Top 25 among the best of all national universities, public and private.
