UI Developer

Viget is an independent digital agency that has been branding, designing, and building digital products and platforms since 1999. Our culture is ideal for lifelong learners seeking a variety of meaningful work, supportive collaboration with positive teammates, and a healthy work/life balance. We work from four sweet offices (hybrid) and remote locations throughout the U.S., and utilize a proven cadence of virtual and in-person meetings and retreats to build comradery and stay connected. We love our team.

If you join our industry-leading 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 UI developers are responsible for building the front-end of 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. On the design side, Viget’s UI developers collaborate closely with our Visual and Product Designers, who design primarily in Figma. In code, our UI developers often collaborate with our Platform Developers, who build and configure websites using PHP-based CMS platforms like Craft and WordPress, as well as our Application Developers, who build applications using open source frameworks like React and Ruby on Rails.
