We are looking for a talented front-end developer who obsesses over clean code and extremely intuitive user experiences.

When you first checkout a new site, do you crack open dev tools and start poking around? Do you resize your browser rapidly trying to see the how the site responds?

Does it make you a little sick to your stomach if all you find is a mess of divs and inline JavaScript?

At ASG front-end developers are an integral part of helping define, design and develop new and innovative Ecommerce ideas that will be used by millions of people. You'll turn designs/mockups into working products and help rapidly prototype new features so we can quickly iterate on what works and what doesn't. If you love to create great user experiences as much as you love to produce clean and super fast front-end code, you probably belong at ASG.
