Junior Web Developer - Can you bring the skills?

The Imagination Digital team is in search of a SOLID junior web developer. The new team member will be responsible for building upon Imagination's robust content management system to deliver outstanding web properties for our brand-name clients. Imagination's CMS was built for the cloud - primarily Amazon's EC2. Our front-end technologies are built mobile first - "NO IE6 HERE!" It's not about a single technology here. It's about best-of-breed approaches and delivering awesome audience experiences on the web. So the team is always thinking about user experience, performance and scaling.

If you can demonstrate the core concepts and fundamentals that are necessary for web development, the team will mentor and train for new skills and the future vision of the team and the company. This role will require strong efforts in both back-end and front-end technologies - to further develop our internal platform while delivering an exceptional user experience to our clients.

This role requires the grasp of multiple skills and the ability to manage multiple tasks in parallel. It will be challenging. It will be engaging. It will be interactive.

Digital team's mantra - "Design it right, build it once"

Digital team's mission - "Demonstrate quality, creativity and excitement for our clients and our colleagues on every project"

Projects for any given day:

Social media integration (Facebook apps, Twitter integration, etc)
