[vox-jobs] Fwd: Front-end web developer [Sacramento]

The Sacramento Press has a front-end developer position available.
While this is a front-end job, they also tell me they run
Debian GNU/Linux on all their servers. :)

----- Forwarded message -----

The Sacramento Press (www.sacramentopress.com) represents the bleeding
edge in journalism, and our platform needs to be agile enough to
provide this edge while remaining rock-solid and stable. Our goal as a
company is to develop brilliant products for Sacramento and other
cities throughout the state, nation and world. Help us continue to
build the tools that bring communities together.

Life At The Company 

We value our employees and want the office to reflect that. Our office
is a casual and relaxed work environment in a converted freight rail
building with 20-foot ceilings and an open floor plan. We keep a
stocked kitchen, hold free workshops and provide the occasional
catered lunch. Everyone loves our office, and comfortable happy
employees make the day worthwhile.

Work With Benefits

To enhance your life, The Sacramento Press provides employee benefit
premiums, including health, dental and vision benefits. We also
provide reimbursements for public transportation or parking passes.

Vacation, Sick Time and Holidays

Producing high-quality results and high-impact work deserves some
balance. The Sacramento Press offers the most competitive and
rewarding time-off package available.

Your Role

As a front-end developer for The Sacramento Press, you will be
integral to our success. There's a lot to do here, but your core
responsibility will be working with other developers to create new
features for the site. Because you'll be a front-end developer, you'll
primarily be working in HTML, CSS, Javascript and templating
code. You'll also be creating mockups, graphics and icons as well as
interfacing with graphic designers to translate their work into HTML.

In order to work well in this role, you'll need to be rock-solid in the following areas:
 * CSS
 * Javascript
 * Photoshop, Illustrator, Pixelmator or equivalent
 * At least one front-end rendering technology (we use JSP)
 * MVC concepts (we use Spring MVC)
 * Familiarity with at least one object-oriented programming language (we use Java)
 * Familiarity with standard web development methodologies and tools
   such as source control and bug tracking (we're an agile shop that uses
   Git for source control)

Since we're a small team, you'll have the opportunity to both teach
and learn in areas in which we're a little lean. You'll have the
opportunity to think up and implement diverse projects and undertake
all the exciting opportunities we have here. Want to learn about
cutting-edge Web APIs, new javascript frameworks, HTML 5-based
interfaces and then put them to use? Unlike most tech shops in the
area that work on restrictive, cookie-cutter software for long-term
government contracts, we'll give you the opportunity to learn
something new every day.

We also value jacks of all trades here, and the following skills will
help you branch out and contribute in other areas:

 * Java/J2EE Development
 * Linux (Debian) Administration
 * Mac OS X Administration
 * MySQL Administration


We are located right next to the Amtrak, light rail and bus stations
at I Street and Fifth Street in the heart of downtown Sacramento.

Ready to apply?

To apply for this position, send an email to
techjobs@sacramentopress.com. Please attach or link to your resume in
the e-mail. Also include any links to production-quality work, if
available. We look forward to hearing from you!

This is a full-time, on-site position. No telecommuters or contractors, please.
