Sr. Javascript Developer wanted for thriving digital marketing agency; Boston, MA

Our client is a highly successful, 150+-person Boston-based digital shop that helps brands create digital strategies that lead to big ideas that live seamlessly across digital channels -web, social, mobile, online video search and/or experiential. Their success is based on one simple principal: an active and engaged user is the most powerful force in the new economy. This principal has been great for business; they've grown 300+% over the past 3 years alone. Now they have a second office in NYC tp services one of their major clients.

Culturally, this company has a model that sets them apart from the rest. They try to hire collaborative talent that share the same passion for digital marketing and enjoy coming to work. Work/life balance is huge here, which is why they have reasonable work hours, a low turnover and high employee loyalty. Perhaps that's why they've been on Boston's "Best places to work" list for 5 years' running. Free catered lunch every day, happy hour Fridays, two bonuses a year and 100% MBTA reimbursement don't hurt either.
