SCSS – CSS management
JQuery – Front end interaction (infinite scroll, history control, lazy loading, etc.)
Git – Version control

The Right Candidate (About You): 
We are looking for a developer excited about web development with a drive for perfection. Vogue Arabia’s code should look good, run fast, and represent the best experience to our readers and advertisers.

You’ve got a proven track record.  We’re looking for a developer with experience scoping and developing an entire website front-end. The ideal candidate will have built a WordPress theme from start to finish. You must understand how WordPress operates and how to build a properly structured front end with Javascript / CSS. You should also understand back end considerations for the WordPress ecosystem including PHP and SQL queries on the back end.
You’re a passionate and polished storyteller. We’re looking for someone who cares about how the site runs and looks. While you don’t need to be a designer, you need to have an attention to aesthetics and notice basic bugs in how the site looks.
You’re technologically savvy.  Vogue Arabia works with a variety of technical tools and you should be able to serve as a consultant to evaluate their effectiveness. This may be anything from 360 degree video to mobile platforms.
You’re a self-starter. Vogue.me will be your baby, and you will need to care or the development of the site, plotting the path for its development and ensuring it has the resources to develop properly. It will be your responsibility to ensure the site develops to be its best.
