AP Front End Engineer

at Viacom in New York, NY   —   Jul 14, 2014   |  
Overview
Artists.MTV is a platform that helps artists connect with an audience and make money. Using the power of the MTV Music Group’s 600 million television households and 60 million online visitors, artists of all sizes, shapes and sounds are invited to claim or create pages, promote what they want, submit songs for use in TV shows, submit videos for use on-air, and connect with a passionate audience of engaged music fans worldwide. You can read more about us at http://www.mtv.com/artists/about/ and http://mediadecoder.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/03/15/digital-notes-mtv-com-sees-an-opening-as-myspace-fades-away/

We are seeking an enthusiastic, passionate, and driven front-end web developer to participate in evolving our existing music discovery / emerging artist platform. In addition to coding html and CSS from scratch you will be immersed in emergent device agnostic strategies -- including but not limited to -- adaptive and responsive design. The user interface features you will implement require intimate knowledge of javascript and jquery. Participation in vibrant cross-project discussion of emerging web technologies will be encouraged. Comfort with the MVC web frameworks (grails), continuous integration (jenkins), dependency management (NEXUS), and version control (svn) is expected. Our traffic scale necessitates the leverage of CDNs, load balancing, and diverse caching techniques all of which shape of our front-end architecture. Successful collaboration within our team of frontend, backend and product developers will require strong interpersonal and written communication skills. This position will require on-site presence in our midtown offices.

Please send your resumes to: ArtistPlatformJobs@viacom.com
