betaworks is hiring a

Digg - Front End Engineer

New York, United States

Who We Are:

Digg delivers the most interesting and talked about stories on the Internet right now. Using a distinctive combination of data science and human editors, we cut through the clutter to bring you only the things worth your time.

In the summer of 2012, Digg was acquired by betaworks in New York City, and was rebuilt and relaunched in six weeks (you can read more about that process here or read some recent press here). Since that time we’ve rebuilt an engaging platform for breaking news, thoughtful long-form, funny videos, and other Internet sound bytes that will keep you both informed and entertained.

We believe in building products that make life easier.

What We’re Looking For:

Digg is looking for an engineer with rock-solid JavaScript/HTML/CSS/image production skills to work on building new features for Digg.com (desktop and mobile web) as well as internal tools that help power Digg.

This job is a full-time position out of our New York offices.

Requirements:

  • 2+ years of front end development experience
  • You can take a layered PSD and build pixel-perfect pages
  • Excellent CSS and JS cross-browser debugging skills (IE8+ and "modern browsers")
  • Familiarity with two or more of the following: AMD, client-side MVC, observer pattern, organizing code for a large-scale JS application, CSS media queries, web performance best practices, HTML email templates
  • Digg is built in Python and the Tornado web framework, so comfort with these and working from the command line is a huge plus
