THE RUNDOWN

Mission is a brand marketing agency inspired by the convergence of creative, technology, and effectiveness. Marketing is increasingly data-driven, and client needs are more about the interdependence of functionality and systems than ever before. We view websites and online applications as cornerstones to an entire marketing ecosystem. They are a means to amplify brand engagement and facilitate user interaction through a range of integrated technical solutions, driven by business strategy and objectives. 


From account strategy to project management, creative to development, our teams work as a cohesive marketing engine. Our developers are continuously challenged to better understand and work between websites, CRMs and marketing clouds, ever-evolving digital marketing/advertising platforms, and analytics systems. Our role as an agency is central to the way brands exist, engage with, and respond to the world around them. If this excites you, then we want YOU to interview us and see if we are a good fit for your lifestyle overhaul.


THE ROLE

Mission needs a Front End Developer to join our not-bored-but-very-busy-in-a-good-way team. As a Mission dev team member, you will display that killer proficiency you’ve been perfecting for the last few years in HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, and you’ll be doing it for some really amazing clients. Sound fun? You will also be able to expand your mind-power by interpreting and translating design documents into HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript (utilizing jQuery and JavaScript Framework). Do you feel some synapses firing? Excited butterflies in the gut? We may be the right fit for you.
