Creative Artists Agency (CAA) is seeking web developers with excellent software architecture and user interface design skills to join our apps team. We design and build software experiences for mobile and web that are uniquely valuable for CAA’s diverse, global, and high-energy entertainment industry culture of agents, executives, artists, and business partners. We seek not only a skilled developer but also a design thinker and craftsperson.

What We're Looking For We're looking for people who want to build great apps in Node, full-time, and who want the best of both worlds: a smart team of co-workers working in an innovative and collaborative atmosphere yet within a stable company, free of startup chaos. You get to go home at night and we won't get mad at you for it.

Design skills. You should have experience participating in all parts of the design process and with creating deliverables at varying levels of fidelity: from quickly communicating a concept through mockups, to building out working models in code, to creatively mashing up disparate tools and APIs to create new business value for our company. We'd like you to have a strong visual aesthetic, and would love to see examples of your work.

Software Development. You should have experience building in HTML5 & CSS3, Javascript/Jquery/Backbone.js, as well as lean UX frameworks like Bootstrap, running on a Node.js back end using

the Express and a templating language such as Jade. We'd love you to you have experience designing web experiences for mobile platforms and to tell us what works and what doesn't. You might have experience designing and operating HTTP-based APIs, which is great because our whole platform is built on a Node-based internal API and our API team could use your help. Node is important! if you tell us you are experienced with Node, we'll take that to mean you have Node apps deployed into production somewhere with real users hitting them, and we'll ask you many questions about your opinions on running Node in production. If you really want to do Node, but you can't do it in your current job, that's okay... just make sure you know a lot about Node. We would like to meet people who are active in the Node.js and Javascript communities and who have experience building Node modules for either private use or open source distribution.

Of course you're very familiar with Git and Github, including managing a project on Github and working with issues and pull requests.

Location and Caveats The job is full time and based out of our Century City, CA office. These positions are full-time with benefits, and we're interested in being contacted by candidates only -- no recruiters please. We're not presently hiring contractors for these roles. And we do dress pretty nicely here which turns out to be surprisingly fun.

Local candidates only, please! Expect to be driving to Century City every weekday, looking awesome while you're hacking Node.
