Front End Developer
Form is a creative agency with a focus on the financial industry, born from its parent company, FormulaFolio Investments. We know that for most creatives the word “financial” can be scary. Don’t worry, our agency operates completely separately from the financial team and partners we serve. You’ll reap the benefits of a larger company with substantial budgets and great benefits, while retaining the vibe of a small design or marketing agency setup.
Our office is designed to foster creativity with an open floor plan, a relaxed gathering space, a collaborative idea room with plenty of whiteboard real estate, and even a built-in bar.
We believe in doing good – for our clients and partners, our employees, and our community. We strive to not only have a positive impact on our clients’ lives but also to be socially and environmentally conscious so that we can provide value to the world around us.
We’re looking for a talented front-end developer to join our team on a contract-to-hire basis.
The ideal candidate would be highly creative with the ability to interpret complex problems and offer elegant solutions. The Front-End Developer should have experience working with the LAMP stack, have excellent front-end skills, and possess a strong understanding of WordPress development and best practices.
Develop websites based on designer’s mockups from the ground up, collaborating closely with the entire creative team from project inception to final delivery and maintenance.
Work remotely with developers from corporate headquarters to create and maintain company web assets.
Modify existing web templates and integrate multiple technologies to create various products for clients.
Work within brand standards and under Creative Director’s guidance when applicable.

FormulaFolio Investments was ranked the 10th fastest-growing private company in America by Inc. 500 in 2017. While the company is headquartered in Grand Rapids, MI, this new creative agency operates in Costa Mesa at the former Dax Gallery. The office is located next to breweries, bars, coffee shops, The LAB, and The Camp.
We offer premium, top-of-the-line benefits with paid vacation and a flexible work schedule.
The perfect candidate would be highly motivated with a passion for good design and clean code, and have an intellectual curiosity, entrepreneurial spirit, tenacity, and a desire for collaboration. Our team has a chill vibe, but we work hard and love what we do.
While a strong resume will help you stand out, we’re more interested in a great personality fit with the ability to learn, grow, and become a strong fixture in our team. If you’re down-to-earth, action-oriented, and resourceful, with a passion for creating functional things – let’s talk.
