Viget is a digital agency / software development shop headquartered just outside of Washington, DC, (in Falls Church, VA) with additional offices in Durham, NC, Boulder, CO, and Chattanooga, TN. We've been at it since 1999 and have earned a solid reputation as a rare firm that does both great design and development work when building digital products and marketing platforms.

If you join our industry-leading front-end development team, you can expect to work on projects that will challenge you to learn and grow as a developer. You'll be working alongside project managers, user experience and visual designers, and other developers to collaborate with our clients from major brands to world-changing nonprofits to emerging startups and tech leaders. Viget == variety.

Our front-end developers are responsible for building visually rich digital experiences and compelling products using a variety of tech stacks while upholding our core mission of delivering modern, semantic, resilient, and accessible interfaces. Viget's front-end team also configures and builds sites on PHP-based CMS platforms. By far, our favorite is Craft, but occasionally we work with WordPress. We also provide opportunities to specialize if developers want to become more adept in CMS development or in building JavaScript-based product interfaces.

To get a feel for how we think and what we're learning about, read our tech articles, check out code.viget.com, or jump straight to our projects on Github.

Our Front-End Developers:

  • Find joy and challenge in building smart interfaces from designs and wireframes.

  • Know HTML and CSS inside and out, and are adept at using JavaScript to create compelling, usable and accessible interfaces.

  • Enjoy keeping up with the ever-evolving landscape of front-end technologies, while staying pragmatic about what to invest their time and energy in.

  • Take pride in building visually-accurate designs and are able to collaborate with designers to cover the bases of screen sizes and create delightful interactions.

  • Are passionate about digital accessibility and creating websites that work for everyone.

  • Can work within Craft or other PHP-based CMS platforms to build templates and interact with data.

  • Care about modern best practices, including code reviews, continuous integration and deployment, and iterative development.

  • Embody our core values of integrity, work ethic, collaboration, creativity, and lifelong learning (especially important as we continually evaluate and embrace new technologies).

  • Value mentorship, learning, and sharing knowledge.

  • Enjoy working with others in our collaborative environment that balances team-wide communication (e.g., standups, Slack discussions, code review), occasional pair programming sessions, and frequent blocks of focused, uninterrupted time for independent work.

  • Listen, collaborate, and communicate exceptionally well.

In a given week, our front-end developers might be:

  • In the thick of one large project or balancing 3 - 4 smaller development tasks. There is no typical week when it comes to projects, but the ability to context switch is essential.

  • Collaborating with our user experience and visual designers during early design phases to help shape the scope and success of a project.

  • Building out a design using Twig, working with a data model in Craft, or bringing an application UI to life. Our front-end developers can work within a lot of different tech stacks.

  • Reviewing pull requests from other developers on the same project or across projects. We view PR reviews as opportunities to practice our “always learning and teaching” ethos.

  • Attending front-end team meetings that are designed for sharing knowledge, surfacing concerns, and generally bringing together a group that is usually working separately across many projects.
