Front-End Developer at PHNX

Beijing, China

Posted on Apr 08 2015 (about 9 years ago)



We're looking for a rock star Front-End Developer to help lead diverse and challenging digital projects for some exciting clients. This is a leadership position with a necessary focus on design, excellence, innovation and passion. Our workflow is extremely collaborative while every project is different and tailored to the personality of the brand. We are tackling complex brand challenges with digital answers that differ from our last success — less 'rinse and repeat', more 'rethink and revolutionise'.

Our work environment is laid back but serious about results. We are a lean, growing agency so all of our work must exhibit a high level of conceptual thought and aesthetic value. Story is King. Attention to detail isn't optional. Work hard. Play hard. We always make sure we're laughing. We always make sure we're getting better.

This position is on-site in our office in Beijing. Can you dig it?
