Thursday, 2 November 2017, by Kenyons

We are looking for a Designer/Front-End Web Developer who is motivated to combine the art of design with the art of programming. Responsibilities will include translation of the UI/UX design wireframes into hi-fidelity templates and then on to actual code that will produce the visual elements of the application.
