Senior Front End Engineer

Posted a year ago

AB is a global investment management firm that offers research and diversified investment services to some of the world’s leading institutions as well as private-wealth clients and retail investors.


The AB Digital Development team is looking for an experienced, senior level front-end web engineer to work closely with business users, business analysts, creative design and back-end development teams to create digital experiences for desktop and mobile platforms. Very strong facility with HTML5, CSS3, Vanilla JavaScript and jQuery with focus on cross-browser compatibility and semantic markup is a must. The candidate should have strong object-oriented development skills and experience developing rich, highly dynamic, client-side applications using XML, XHTML, JSON, React and Angular framework. MVC architecture and an intimate familiarity with responsive design are assumed.

As front-end development is half logic and half design, the candidate we are looking for should have a strong understanding of the artistic side of the web: balance, transition, motion, and flow, especially when it comes to JavaScript. Being able to ‘break out’ design comps into markup is your day-to-day bread and butter. Candidate should have a strong understanding of mobile first, responsive web patterns and UX/UI design.

Candidate will assist the ongoing planning and development of innovative and interactive functionality which will enhance our AB digital presence. She will collaborate with graphic designers and knowledge of tools like SKETCH, InVision and Photoshop is required. This is a technology position and therefore requires strict code management.


Specific responsibilities include but are not limited to:

  • Architect, engineer and support a wide variety of web pages for our AB website
  • Work on front-end development activities, solutions, methods and practices
  • Develop new and effective interactive design solutions on time and in scope
  • Collaborate to deliver on new business initiatives and platform enhancements
  • Assist in developing methodologies, standards and best practices for the group
  • Research and recommend new interactive technologies for mobile and social
  • Develop reusable code libraries
  • Conduct code walkthroughs and quality assurance with IT team


  • Senior level in Vanilla JavaScript/jQuery/Ajax
  • Senior level in XML/RSS and other data interchange standards to parse data from content management system
  • Extensive knowledge in HTML5 and CSS3, including Webkit animation
  • Expert knowledge in in how to request and process data from Web Services
  • Expert object-oriented development skills developing with JSON, React and Angular frameworks
  • Knowledge in using XSLT to transform XML documents into HTML
  • A complete understanding of the complexities of Responsive Web Design
  • Thorough knowledge of design tools including SKETCH, Adobe Photoshop & Illustrator
  • Ability to take a PNG/mockup or concept and turn it into a working experience
  • Experience in creating exciting interactions on the iPad, iPhone and other mobile devices that conform to W3C standards
  • Passion for coding and tasks ownership
  • Task management and clear communication skills are just as important as coding skills
