We are a Fortune 500 company in midtown Manhattan. We are looking for a contract, project-oriented web developer for our e-commerce group. We are initially looking to hire on a per-project basis; but this could easily become a long-term contract. Our properties include Barneys New York, Nine West & Easy Spirit.

We are in the process of moving from a legacy client-side codebase, to standards-based layouts with lots of JavaScript-powered interactivity. We are seeking a developer with a strong interest in building useable, attractive interfaces. While this is a development position, there will be numerous opportunities to review and improve the UI. We also look to our client-side developers to discover new UI components and features.

The candidate must have a solid portfolio. Must be highly organized and detail oriented, and must be able to research and develop projects from start to finish with little guidance.

An interest in Web 2.0 and innovation is a must! Applicants with e-commerce experience preferred. This is not an entry level position.

Required Experience:

- HTML 4+ years
- Photoshop/ImageReady 4+ years
- JSP 3+ years (or reasonable equivalent)
- JavaScript 2+ years
- CSS/DOM 2+ years
- Experience debugging Web pages for Firefox, Safari and IE.

Additional Experience (not required, but helpful):

- Familiarity with Web 2.0 JavaScript frameworks, such as Prototype.js and script.aculo.us.
- Familiarity with any of the following: Ajax/DHTML, Weblogic, Graphic Design, User Interface (UI) design, Information Architecture (IA), Project Management, Flash, Usability, Accessibility, Interaction Design (IxD), Human-Computer Interaction (HCI), Web standards, Design Patterns, Refactoring.
- Familiarity with any computer languages not already mentioned; such as PHP, Ruby On Rails, Perl, Scheme or Lisp.

Interested candidates please contact me at this email address.

Cheers,
Noah
