Barrel Agency Web Developer

Posted on February 6th, 2019

Job Overview

Responsible for several maintenance projects at once. Develop insights to improve upon our processes and quality assurance. Regularly help tweak automations for continuous deployment and improvement as well as port them over to legacy projects.

You have a passion for healthy code and spot ways to address infractions with automation and scripting. You think gitflow is neat and has merit. Since many projects are either "legacy" or inherited builds, you have an expert ability to quickly identify and troubleshoot bugs/defects—you can just figure it out because you have so many debugging skills. You also assist with deployments to production.

  • Are you really good at automation and scripting?
  • Do you thrive on multiple simultaneous projects?
  • Do you cringe when you see bad code get through the pipelines?
  • Do you feel the need to improve process to achieve efficiency?
  • Do you occasionally get the itch to do some quick frontend templating?
