We're Hiring! Full Time Web Designer / Front End Developer

Web Development
Mason Wendell

We’re looking for a web designer to help build our interactive design division at Zivtech. We’re a open source web development and design shop based in Philadelphia. We’re passionate about Drupal, Alfresco, and the Open Source Movement, and that creative energy infects everything we do. We’re deeply plugged into the Drupal community, Philadelphia, and the overall web design and development community.

Our designers are passionate about design, user experience, branding, and client goals. We encourage the most forward-thinking techniques including designing in the browser and using the “hardboiled” approach. We look for creative and practical solutions and try to write and speak about them in addition to using them in our day to day work.

You will likely have many of these interests as well, but we expect you to bring your own skills and passions into our mix. You should have a strong portfolio, maybe a blog, and if you don't already have a Dribbble account we'll hook you up.
