Some Characteristics That Define You

As a Front End Developer, you know that your job is much more than graphic design, web development, or creative alone. You are an artist, an engineer, and multitude of other things which make you the stellar developer that you are.

  • Artists. Creating websites and user interfaces isn’t just about functionality for us, it’s about making a unique work of art that represents each different client and each different project that we work on. The keyboard is our brush and our clients are your canvas.
  • Developers. Design is a unique opportunity to combine the artistry and creativity of the web with the functionality and logic of a scientist and an inventor. Our front-end developers are design engineers just as much as they are artists.
  • Detail-Oriented. White space and themed projects are some of our best friends in the design and development department. We love to see a site come perfectly together and we know you hate to see tiny details and bad Photoshop jobs ruin a beautiful project.
  • Visionaries. One of the things we love about design here at Spectrum is that it’s constantly evolving. Whether you are working on a new internal software platform or innovative new client site, we are always looking for ways to improve our products and increase your knowledge base as a developer.
  • Curious. As developers and digital marketers, we have the unique opportunity to create interactive and functional pieces of art. As developers, we’re not only proud of those projects but curious why some are more successful than others and seek to understand which designs work best.
