Sr. Designer / Front-End Developer – Charlotte, NC – ONLINE PORTFOLIO A MUST

**Online Porfolio Required. Please submit with Application**

If you’re looking for an opportunity with an established well-known company, but like to work in a small, dynamic, highly collaborative start-up style environment, then you’ve come to the right place!


We are seeking a talented full-time, Sr. Designer/Front-end Developer to design and build out anything that’s thrown your way. We’re not looking for a designer who’s an OK coder, or a rock star coder who’s decent at design. We’re looking for that rare “superhero” who has the design ability of a modern day Michelangelo, but is also capable of building it out like a real life Tony Stark.

A primary portion of the position will be ongoing homepage and landing page A/B tests for various products including mortgages, autos, credit cards, free credit, personal loans and many more (Basically, we find ways to save people money: yep, Superhero). With hundreds of thousands of page views each week, one successful new homepage or landing page test could generate millions in annual revenue. Your future team may hoist you up upon their shoulders and carry you off into a victorious sunset. That’s right. That’s the power, exposure and potential success you could have in this position.

You will work closely with the senior creative team, copywriters, and project managers to create and deliver compelling design and development solutions.

• Conceive and design an array of original homepages, landing pages, and webpage elements for ongoing testing of several products, while adhering to the growing brand and style guidelines.
• Construct your designs (HTML, HTML5, CSS, Javascript or whatever wand you need to create that magic) to be pixel perfect, while pushing the envelope with the latest coding trends, tricks, subtle animations, etc.
• Maintain web standards and keep up-to-date with new technologies and advertising trends and formats (i.e. site responsiveness, size restrictions, mobile, web video, etc.)
• Along with landing and homepages, other requests will inevitably come your way including interactive info graphics, acquisition emails, digital tradeshow displays, etc. – or whatever else might interest you
• Brainstorm, concept, and collaborate with the Creative Team
• Responsible for helping grow and overall shape the LendingTree brand
• Work with internal customers to determine project goals and deliverable timeframes.

Our Ideal Candidate:
• Is a graduate from a 4-year school with a graphic design degree (or close equivalent) and over 5 years experience, including web design and front-end development
• Has a portfolio of stellar web design and development to share with us that demonstrates excellent design principles, and problem solving through visual communication
• Has excellent interpersonal skills and significant experience working cross functionally – should be able to collaborate closely with Marketing and Product peers as a key creative partner
• Can understand business objectives and proactively contribute both strategic and design ideas
• Interested in the analytics associated with the creatives you produce and test, to improve designs by making small but significant changes
• Is able to work in a fast-paced team environment and juggle multiple projects at once
• Can funnel constructive criticism into new ideas
• Produces quick and dirty concepts for review before driving full speed ahead

Professional Knowledge:
• Expert knowledge of the Adobe Creative Suite
• Expert knowledge in graphic design, layout, hierarchy, etc.
• Expert knowledgeable in HTML/CSS/Javascript, able to create pages completely from scratch – no WYSIWYG
• Able to create clean and concise code and images to keep page load times fast
• Experience using more modern web technologies such as SCSS/LESS
• Experience with GIT, and resolving code conflicts or versioning issues in a quick and clean manner

Benefits & Compensation:
• This position offers a competitive salary for a Sr. Designer/Front-end Developer with 5+ years of experience
• We offer all of the regular perks (i.e. medical, dental, vision, etc.), plus a few unique ones including “unlimited” time off, 6% 401(k) matching, personal trainer, yoga instructor, etc.)
• Work for an established brand in a start-up environment
• Located in the beautiful Ballantyne Corporate Park with easy access to I-485, delicious lunch spots, golf courses, shops, nature trails and parks that are all set to the serene soundtrack of babbling brooks and birds chirping. Seriously, you’ll think you’re the main star in a yoga based Disney Princess movie. Namaste.
