Associate Web Developer


LOCATION: We are based–as is this position–in Tempe, AZ—an upbeat college town in the Greater Phoenix Metro area.

WE ARE: A full-service marketing, PR, social media, advertising and interactive agency. We have a team of 38 people and a culture driven by innovation, fun and a wealth of both young and experienced talent.

OUR LEADERSHIP: Our firm was founded by Aric Zion (pronounced Eric), who holds a Master’s in Computer Engineering and has both MBA and PhD level training in marketing, and DuGué Zion (pronounced Doo-gay), who holds an MBA. The combination of their Fortune 100 business and technical experience, as well as international assignments in Japan and Europe, has given them a tremendous amount of valuable knowledge as well as a depth and breadth of experience that has enabled our firm to achieve things that other firms only dream of with respect to true integration across PR, social media, interactive and traditional campaigns.

OUR CULTURE: We have a flat organization and a “no-walls” office layout that facilitates collaboration and open communication across departments. We also have an office dog, so if you don’t like dogs, that’s a deal breaker. You should also be fond of impromptu movie outings, happy hours, and lake days on the company boat and jet skis. If you’re not, then our medical coverage will allow you to have your head examined.

OUR CREDENTIALS: We are currently ranked as the #2 Ad Agency, #1 PR firm, #1 Social Media firm, and #1 Online Marketing firm in Arizona. We also hold positions in the top interactive firms and top web development firms lists in the Phoenix Business Journal’s Book of Lists. Very important to us is our ranking as the #1 Best Place to Work in the Greater Phoenix area (companies <50 people). This ranking is particularly important to us because it allowed our employees to dress up as cowboys and cowgirls at the western themed event that celebrated the winners—natural of you to ask at this point if we get out much.

THE NUTS AND BOLTS OF THE JOB: We are seeking a self-motivated developer who can take ownership of a wide spectrum of deliverables under the guidance of a lead developer from project to project. Strong time management skills are crucial as you may need to work on multiple projects during any given day. We’re looking for an exceptional individual.  If it’s you, then this is a perfect ground-floor opportunity to help expand our web development team which already consists of four developers, two UX strategists, two content developers, and several interactive designers. The requirements for this position include:


  • Two years experience or a computer science or design related degree
  • Strong foundational knowledge in PHP, SQL, HTML, JS and CSS
  • Knowledge of how to build and test HTML emails for maximum compatibility
  • WordPress theme development experience
  • Knowledge of how to develop for the responsive web
  • Strong cross-browser testing skills
  • Basic Photoshop knowledge (manipulating, compressing and exporting images for web)
  • Comfortable in the Microsoft Office suite of products


  • jQuery library
  • CSS preprocessors (Sass, Less etc)
  • MVC frameworks and common programming design patterns
  • User Experience best practices
  • Version control systems (Git, Mercurial, Subversion etc)
  • Workflow automation tools (Gulp, Grunt etc)
