London, UK

Job description
Toaster is a specialist team of creative individuals who help build answers to interesting questions. Working out of London, San Francisco, Singapore and India, we build best-in-class digital projects for creative clients including Google, YouTube, Android and Toyota.

Our work has been honoured at Cannes with a Gold Cyber Lion, by D&AD, theFWA, The Revolution Awards and The Tomorrow Awards.

Born out of Google Creative Lab, our relationship with our biggest client is one of close collaboration. Together we craft ideas, explore concepts and execute pixel perfect sites. Recent notable projects include Chrome Super Sync Sports, Life in a Day, YouTube SpaceLab, Google Science Fair and We L'Aquila.

We are looking for experienced front-end developers, full-time or freelance, to work on exciting web projects that push the boundaries of what's possible online. This role also revolves around working closely with clients and other team members, prototyping mobile first web experiences using Javascript / CoffeeScript and WebGL.

We try to let programmers focus on what they enjoy doing which we find is also usually what they are most efficient at. Depending on your skill set, your role could either focus on the layout / UX programming or designing and implementing core features for web apps.

You may choose to focus on writing carefully crafted web layouts and interactions using HTML/CSS/JS. The challenges involved require a good understanding of cross-browser quirks, best practices for implementing the layout of web apps, and web performance optimisation, especially working with CSS animations while maintaining good framerates and page weight across all platforms.

Otherwise you might want to focus on developing core components and features. We're looking for programmers with experience designing and implementing applications using a modular approach. The majority of our work is written in JavaScript using Google Closure Library and Polymer, but you may also take part in projects that involve working in other popular languages.
You will explore the very latest technologies to produce innovative interactive prototypes and game experiences for Google Creative Lab and other clients.

Core skills (all roles)
- Deliver best-in-class HTML/SASS/CSS/JS front-end code across a broad array of interactive web and mobile projects
Strong understanding of how the web works and writing code that is efficient (HTTP requests, caching, page rendering, page weight, DOM manipulation, etc.)
- Develop and test across multiple browsers, platforms, and devices, including smartphones and tablets

Additional skills (layout / UX focused roles)
- JS libraries knowledge (especially Google Closure Library and the Google Polymer framework)
- Excellent eye for layout and ability to translate PSD files into pixel perfect HTML/CSS code
- HTML5 and CSS3 expertise
- Knowledge & experience with OO JavaScript

Additional skills (application focused roles)
- Canvas / WebGL / HTML5 drawing API proficiency
- Ability to develop and test across multiple browsers, platforms, and devices including smartphones and tablets
- Strong knowledge & extensive experience with OO JavaScript

- Google Closure Library & Closure Compiler
- Google App Engine
