Job Description

Front-end/UI Engineer Job Summary: The UI engineer will participate as part of an agile team in the design and development of a cutting-edge, webified application for Spirent's leading load and security testing solutions. They will work with our UX team to refine and implement designs for new advanced methods for managing tests, test appliances and test data. Job Responsibilities: The UI engineer will participate as part of a team using technologies such as HTML5, CSS, Javascript, jQuery, JavaScript Framework(such as CanJs, Angular, Ember...), Component.io and other popular thin-client development libraries. A successful candidate for this position will be expected to implement and enhance browser-based application components. Primary job tasks will be translating UI mockups and design schemes to functioning markup and code. Additionally, they should be able to work "outside of their box" by contributing to discussions and decisions on both upstream (design & usability) and downstream (server-side implementation) tasks. They will also be expected to provide accurate forecasts of work effort and to clearly communicate implementation risks and design trade-offs to peers and team members. Self-starting capability and incredible initiative are primary capabilities for this role - this is a small, fast moving effort, building some incredibly exciting technology and we need people who can chart their own course over unfamiliar terrain rather than be given a map.

Job Requirements:

Bachelor's Degree. Experience in professional internships. Related work experience of 2-5 years. Experience with development of web and/or thin-client applications). Solid markup skills (HTML/XHTML/CSS), with a preference for familiarity & experience with CSS3 / HTML 5 technologies. Experience with dynamic presentation technologies - Javascript / jQuery. Experience with JavaScript frameworks (such as CanJs, Angular, etc.). Experience with asynchronous communication technologies such as AJAX.

Experience with Ruby development is preferred. Familiarity with accessibility technologies and design metaphors. Familiarity with agile development processes.
