Front End Developer

THE COMPANY: We are Occasion Brands. An e-commerce company offering the largest selection of special occasion dresses through our family of online retail sites, PromGirl, Simply Dresses and Kleinfeld Bridal Party. Our mission is to create trust with customers at an early age and support them during some of the most important moments of their lives. We are changing the process of buying special occasion formal wear into one that is fun, easy and that brings happiness and joy to the doorstep of every customer. The “bringing happiness and joy” thing is what makes us tick - it drives us to lead, inspires us to innovate and keeps us coming back to the office every day.

 

YOU: A persistent developer that knows when not to quit and that pays hyper attention to the details - you derive satisfaction from “dotting all i’s” and “crossing all t’s.” Collaborative by nature.

You take occasional crazy in stride because, after all, you're helping to bring happiness and joy to customers during some of the most important moments of their lives.
