Job Title: Senior Engineer, Front-End

Key Responsibilities:

Code the most complex pieces of the application. Whether it's a dynamic visualization, a tricky 3rd party integration, or a crazy animation sequence, you're up for the challenge and you'll take pride in the finished product.

Test your code, and help ensure that the right code is being tested across your project. You also help make sure that integration tests are running, and that everyone on the team tests before they push code (either manually or as part of a pre-commit hook).

Model the behavior and practices that you want to see in the organization. Want to follow TDD? Do it, and demonstrate the results to your team and clients. Itching to adopt a new tool or framework? Try it out and show the value.

Estimate or point your own work, and be able to sanity check estimations from more junior developers to make sure that they're setting themselves up for success

Share your learnings and experiences with your team, your local community, and SapientRazorfish globally through Lunch and Learns, knowledge sharing webinars, and blog posts.
