Web Designer
Princeton NJ
Dow Jones
Full Time

As a Web Designer you'll work alongside our user experience architects
and technology teams to bring concepts to life. The ideal candidate
should have experience with "information design" (think NYTimes.com not
Brand.com) and have a strong grasp of color, typography and space. You
understand that layout and function can be just as beautiful as imagery
and flash.

Primary Responsibilities:

* Use design software to create mockups and html prototypes for new
features
* Build/Code static and dynamic pages from these mockups and additional
specifications
* Design and produce optimized, web-ready graphics

* Create and manage CSS styles and CSS frameworks

* Create code for front-end behaviors with Dynamic HTML

* Cross-browser test and troubleshoot site presentation

Knowledge and Experience Required:

* 4+ years of experience in front-end web development

* Exceptional pixel-perfect graphic design and typography

* Browser rendering and cross-browser knowledge

* Familiarity with concept of interaction design

Skills and Abilities Required:

* Expert with a major design application (Photoshop, Dreamweaver)

* Expert XHTML/CSS for cross-browser rendering
* RIA experience a must
* Working with/around dynamic code (Java JSP, PHP) a plus

* Multi-task in a fast-paced, deadline-oriented environment

Dow Jones is less "corporate" than you may think! There's a gym and
daycare on-site, soccer, softball, and a flexible/Collaborative work
environment.
