Place Creative Company

Web Developer + Designer

JOB OVERVIEW

Place Creative Company is looking for a full-time Web Developer + Designer who can combine their expert technical skills, strong graphic design eye and creative, solution-based mind to join our team.

You should have experience in building beautiful, functional, accessible and secure websites, but also have the ability to expand on website designs created by our design team.

Whether involved from the beginning or being pulled in mid-project, being able to take a project over the finish line on-time and within scope is a must.

In addition, we will rely on your:

Strong Design Eye + Skill:  While the development/programming of websites and other digitally-focused projects will be a primary responsibility, your ability to keep designs consistent and on-brand will be equally as important.

Ability to Multitask:  Projects aren’t always handled one at a time—you will need to be able to juggle multiple projects without missing deadlines.

Problem-solving Capabilities:  Websites need to be functional as well as attractive, and clients’ needs can bring up unique challenges. Being able to figure out how to translate design vision to a functional website is a critical skill.

Efficient Communication Skills:  Both within the Place team, and directly with clients. Whether in-person, via phone, zoom, chat or email, clear and professional is key to how we work.

Expertise Under Pressure:  No day is the same—whether it’s a tight deadline or mid-project curveball, professionally handling the pressures of fast-paced creative challenges is a must.
