Senior Front-End Developer

CoLab is a worker-owned tech collective that builds custom apps and websites. We’re seeking an experienced front-end developer, architect, and team lead who works well in a collaborative environment. Our main client for this hire is a well-known company that produces eco-friendly household products.


  • Comprehensive knowledge of front-end development principles: architectural considerations, best practices, and modern design patterns.

  • Twig, Drupal or PHP theming experience strongly preferred. Experience in other templating languages with excellence in results and demonstrated rapid ability to learn will also be taken into consideration.

  • Responsive front-end development skills, with ability to review and work off of designs to develop standards-aligned, front-end code, and to execute pixel-perfect implementation from comps as needed.

  • Experience with PR review process, git (ideally gitflow) and workflow based on JIRA or other ticket-based project management toolset.

  • Comfort with ES6 Javascript and ability to work with JavaScript code.

  • Knowledge of modular CSS practices, including familiarity with SASS or a similar preprocessor.

Also Great

  • Familiarity with PatternLab or other component-driven design and development frameworks and processes.

  • Front-end leadership experience or demonstrated ability in the following areas: interface with designers and back-end development teams, support collaborating front-end developers, document processes and decisions, and discuss approaches and problem solving with clients.

  • Knowledge of Drupal coding standards for basic module and theme development.

  • Experience working within non-hierarchical teams, cooperatives, or other collaborative structures.

  • Experience working with mission-driven organizations: B-corporation, social-impact start-ups, community organizations, cooperatives, etc.

  • Minimum 3-4 years experience front-end development with Drupal sites using CSS, Javascript, and HTML.

Time Commitment

This position requires about 30-35 hours/week. Our working hours are +/- 3 hours eastern time zone. This initial engagement lasts through May 2018, with strong potential for long-term work across a variety of clients. The ideal candidate is interested in pursuing membership with CoLab’s cooperative structure, but this is not a requirement.

Hourly, commensurate with experience.

We look forward to talking with you!
