Front End Engineer

You’re hungry to learn and experiment with new technologies and frameworks and contribute to creating this massive experiment we call the web. On the flip side, you keep an eye towards standards and accessibility, so the world (and its robot inhabitants) can experience your vision across multiple devices.


You will be primarily responsible for engineering the front-end user experience on client projects. This could mean working with back-end devs to turn mock-ups into working code, creating a jekyl-based living prototype into a responsive angular app, or compiling a custom Bootstrap library into a Kalatheme subtheme.


This is an entry level position, with room to grow. Competitive candidates will adeptly wield the following technologies:


  • HTML5/CSS/JS and responsive theming

  • Web Accessibility standards and best-practices

  • Bootstrap 3

  • Drupal 7 theming layer


Ideal candidates should also additionally be proficient, familiar with some of these tools, or at least be excited by them:


  • JS based front end frameworks like AngularJS, BackboneJS or KnockoutJS

  • NodeJS theme tooling with things like npm, grunt/gulp and bower

  • Compass/SCSS/LESS or other CSS preprocessor technology

  • Kalatheme

  • Yeoman generators

  • Web components

  • Theming for Drupal panels-driven sites


You may also contextually find yourself emanating Visual design, UX, content strategy and more because we all roll nimbly and value experimentation, collaboration and agile practices at Kalamuna.


Working with us:


Kalamuna is committed to building practical solutions that empower organizations and individuals. You’ll be working simultaneously on a reasonable mix of interesting projects for worthy people, and be counted upon to solve problems in code in a team context leveraging agile methodologies.


We’re also committed to your excellence and continued development and will actively seek to intersect projects with your ambitions.


Kalamuna offers many benefits including health benefits, commuter benefits, a continued learning stipend, a flexible PTO policy, federal holidays and catered Friday lunches.

About Kalamuna


Kalamuna makes the Internet for rabble-rousing organizations driven to tinker, critique, and change the way things are. We like to play with the existing state of affairs by testing strategies, coming up with new solutions, new paradigms, and new ways of doing things. It’s this restless, change-making mindset that gets anything worth doing done. We have it and our clients have it. And it’s what drives our work in design, strategy, user experience, and development. When we play, mission-driven organizations win.
