University Marketing is seeking a full-time, front-end Web Developer to build innovative, well-engineered websites while informing the online strategy for the University of Wisconsin-Madison. We are a supportive unit that offers continuous learning opportunities and a collaborative environment. We offer a hybrid work environment, with up to 60% remote work.
University Marketing's dynamic team creates websites that serve the entire UW-Madison campus. The university's gateway site (www.wisc.edu), the official UW Wordpress theme, and the campus news site and alumni magazine are a few of the web properties in our portfolio. More recently we've launched several showcase sites including exploreuw.wisc.edu, origins.wisc.edu, and chazen.wisc.edu. Our ideal candidate will embrace working with digital and user experience designers to create more sites and storytelling experiences that serve diverse audiences.
We follow modern best practices in front-end web development, starting with semantically meaningful markup, progressive enhancement, and responsive design. We pay special attention to ensure our work is inclusive and accessible. We work primarily with open source platforms and tools -- WordPress, Laravel, Rails, and static site generators such as Eleventy -- in an environment where we have the flexibility and opportunity to innovate and create.
Our team values organization, flexibility and a sense of humor. You will collaborate with a growing team of designers, user experience experts, and developers. This position reports to the Web Director who values team players with a can-do attitude.
