Job description:

We are now looking for an experienced Front End web developer who will be part of implementing the Front End (responsive HTML5/CSS/JS) across our global E-commerce platform.

We are looking for a Front End developer with solid skills in producing semantically correct and accessibility compliant HTML5 markup together with CSS3 and JavaScript wizardry.
