Senior Full-Stack Web Developer

Be the launching pad

Amazing websites don’t make themselves—they require expert hands to craft them like full-stack developers. As a part of our development department, you have the skills to make HTML/CSS/JS do acrobatics while conforming to industry, and team, best practices. Ideally, we are looking for someone who has extremely strong front-end skills and possibly several years of experience building in CMS platforms (like WordPress and Drupal) but is open to different backgrounds.

Work Location

idfive is located in Baltimore, MD, on the campus of the Maryland Institute College of Art. We love Charm City, and it loves us back. A significant amount of our team lives in the city and surrounding areas, but fivers can be found all across the country. 

While we love to get together and meet for agency-wide events with both our out-of-state and local fivers, where you work is up to you, so long as it’s during our operating hours of 9–5 EST. If you’re within driving distance of the office, you may be asked to work from the office as needed for creative brainstorms or in-person client meetings.
