Apply your frontend development passion to socially-minded causes
As a Frontend Developer at Kalamuna, you’ll be responsible for helping chart the course of Kalamuna’s frontend practice in coordination with development leadership. Your solutions will consider our UX design goals, which are user-centered and collaborative. You’ll help ensure we have strong, standardized approaches to the problems that deserve them, and generally have an eye towards the future.
You’ll also work on client projects. This could mean hand-crafting a static site based on Figma files and Zeplin outputs, creating a living styleguide and prototype with component-based design, or developing in the CMS – primarily Drupal and sometimes WordPress. In the CMS you’ll focus on themes, subthemes, and component architectures, but also sometimes code-sharing in complex brand ecosystems, decoupled applications, and more.

- 3+ years agency experience
- A desire to work with mission-driven institutions like nonprofits, universities, museums, and civic organizations

- Comfort with Drupal 8/9 and a desire to learn more; expertise desired.
- Comfort with modern development practices, build tools, and package managers.
