HTML/CSS Specialist (Contract)

Job description

DockYard is hiring an HTML/CSS Specialist (Contract) to collaborate closely with our in-house Design and Engineering teams to facilitate the handoff between visual design and implementation.

Who We Are

DockYard is a digital product consultancy specializing in production-ready apps. DockYard offers a range of consulting services with capabilities in product planning, design, user experience (UX), full-stack engineering, and QA. Over the last decade, the company has solved complex product challenges for visionary brands like Netflix, Apple, Nasdaq, and Harvard.

We’re honored to have been included on guides ranging from Inc 5000 (2020, 2019) to Fast Company’s Best Places to Work for Innovators (2020) amongst others.

The Role

Our workflow involves three steps. Designers hand off mockups to the HTML/CSS Specialists who then give styled templates to engineers. Traditionally writing HTML and CSS was the responsibility of designers or engineers, but with the rapid growth of HTML5 and CSS3, we believe that there needs to be a role within the team solely focused on those technologies.

In addition to that, you will be challenged with helping drive the creation of web applications and solving interesting problems regarding accessibility, browser compatibility, standards compliance, and responsive design.


The ideal candidate is one who lives and breathes HTML & CSS, and continuously seeks to sharpen those skills, stays up to date with modern CSS techniques and emerging web standards, and strives to achieve clean, semantic, accessible markup.

Responsibilities

  • Own the HTML & CSS development of modern web applications, operating between Design and Engineering teams.
  • Assist in scoping, estimating, and planning for projects, in collaboration with the team lead.
  • Participate in work review, pairing, or other forms of knowledge sharing.
