As a Front-End Web Designer on the Granicus Web Services team you will use a combination of HTML, CSS, PHP, Smarty, JavaScript, Regular Expression, and Crystal Reports to create, validate, and deploy successful HTML, Word, Crystal Reports, and others, based templates for our clients. You will work with clients from start to finish – assessing their current documents and systems, addressing questions and requests as they arise, and implementing/creating templates based on your assessments. You will also provide support and troubleshoot issues with clients.

We are seeking a candidate with proven communication and technical abilities who has an interest in growing as a technical leader with a high-tech company. A high attention to detail and a solid understanding of layout and document design concepts is also desired.

  • Provide mockups and examples and walk clients through them as needed.
  • Prioritize requests and respond accordingly on daily basis.
  • Respond quickly and professionally to client inquiries.
  • Collaborate with Support, Project Management, and Development teams as needed to resolve client issues and improve Granicus products.
  • Build and maintain internal documentation regarding standard methods and processes.
  • Serve as an internal expert on design and integration issues, providing guidance and expertise to various teams in the Granicus organization.
  • Other duties as assigned.
