DGA Security Systems Frontend UI/UX Developer in United States

DGA Security Systems and its family of companies are looking for an experienced UI/UX developer to join our development team. We are looking for someone who is passionate about creating intuitive, useful interfaces across multiple platforms with JavaScript and CSS. The team explores and implements a wide range of existing and emerging protocols (Web, Mobile, APIs, etc.) that maintain our firms’ positions as technology leaders in the electronic security industry. We tackle problems across the spectrum of application development, so you will have the opportunity to contribute in a very real way to companies that are expanding rapidly to address multiple market segments with advanced technology and industry-leading customer service.

Electronic security is changing faster than ever before with application development needed in emerging technologies such as video analytics, access control integration, personal emergency monitoring, signal transmission and IP/telephony integration. This is your chance to create such applications, especially on mobile platforms, that are at the very forefront of an industry in transition. You will sharpen your skills, learn new things and help develop the next generation of application development in an industry that is consistently growing, while maintaining a good work/life balance.

  • Work directly with our designers and back-end developers to continuously improve our web app.
  • Proactively optimize client code to ensure stability and high performance.
  • Iterate quickly based on user feedback.
  • You could be working at any level of the stack, but you’re passionate about front-end development.
  • You have in-depth experience with a framework like Backbone.js, AngularJS, or React.
  • You strive to write code that lasts for years, not months.
  • You have a diverse technical background. You’re a developer, not just a front-end developer. You know the difference between ECMAScript and JavaScript, and are proud (or slightly ashamed) of it.
  • You prefer profiling, analyzing heap snapshots, and refactoring code into modular chunks to tweaking CSS.
  • You have an excellent command of written and spoken English.
  • You'd like to work from our awesome office in lower Manhattan, where our web team are co-located.

  • Devoted to code that others enjoy reading and can easily be maintained for years to come
  • Champion Responsive & Adaptive Design using Complied CSS (e.g. Sass, or Less)
