Web Developer/Designer

at Sparkler.TV in Silicon Valley, California   —   Jul 14, 2014   |  
Overview
Sparkler TV seeks to define the television of the future. We are looking for a visually-inspired software developer to develop and help design our Web properties. If you want to be loved by fellow consumers, this might be a good fit. For the time being, this is for sweat (but significant) equity (fund raising as we write). Below are the details of what we are looking for, but attitude is as important as any specific experience -- flexibility and adaptability are important when the team is small.
Responsibilities
Design and maintain cutting-edge, visually compelling Web properties that support, attract, retain and monetize consumers.
Ensure artwork is preserved and functionality works as intended.
Constantly assess Web properties for usability, functionality, and learnability.
Work closely with product team to align the final product’s style with its Web aspects.
Maintain Web art such as graphics, header artwork, ad creative and any other Web art-related pieces.
Keep up to date on Web technology and cutting-edge UI developments and be able to convey key trends to entire team.
Other related design and development duties as assigned.
Experience
3 years of experience in Web development or other closely related software field.
Proficient with reading, writing and troubleshooting HTML and CSS.
Game development or social media work a plus.
Knowledge of video formats and compression techniques for Web distribution useful.
Skills
Proficient with reading, writing and troubleshooting HTML and CSS (HTML5 preferred).
Able to maintain/re-purpose DHTML, XML, and especially JavaScript (Actionscript, Perl, PHP, etc. useful too).
Autonomous, proactive, highly motivated and organized; able to self-motivate and self-manage while participating in team efforts.
A sense of humor and imagination.
Familiarity in optimizing designs and UX via qualitative and quantitative methods.
Ability to work to deadline and focus under pressure.
Game development or social media work a plus.
Knowledge of video formats and compression techniques for Web distribution useful.
Capable of rapid prototyping.
Digital illustration skills a plus.
Experience working with any of the following: Adobe After Effects, digital TV or online video editing and compression software, 3D software.
Compensation
For now, (significant) equity only -- hope to be funded soon, but candidates should be prepared to be self-sustaining for the next 6 months.
