» JavaScript Ninja JavaScript Jobs

The jobs listed here have been relocated to the new JavaScript Ninja JavaScript Jobs board.

While I’m not, currently, looking for any extra work (a full-time job and writing a book will slow you down a bit) I’m frequently forwarded job openings that I would like to pass on to others.

Generally speaking, these jobs fall into a couple areas: 1) Are JavaScript-related (either jQuery or general Ajax). 2) Are within the New York/New England area or are remote contract jobs. If you have a job posting that you’d like me to relay, feel free to contact me and I’ll try to push it on.

jQuery Contract Position

Dave Merwin (dmerwin at says that he needs some help with “a small but cool project that I want to do in jQuery.” Contact him if you’re interested.

Boston Interface Design – JavaScript, jQuery, Python

Mark Soper (mark at says:

Alluvial Labs is building Alluvio, a web application for collaborative investment research. The main need is for someone who knows how to make a professional and usable interface aesthetic. We also have lots of opportunity for the work to evolve into development: javascript/jquery, python, etc.

jQuery Plugin Development

Ryan Graf (ryanjgraf at says that:

I’m looking for an experienced developer with jQuery that can help with some work on a plugin (edit-in-place stuff). We’ve been working on an existing plugin provided by another contributor and have basically re-written the entire plugin to add a lot of extra functionality. We’re now facing some interesting cross browser issues with IE6/Safari that have been difficult to debug.

JavaScript/Ajax Writer

Scott Delap (scott at says: (which I’m the lead RIA/JavaScript editor of) is looking for a couple news writers to cover JavaScript and Ajax (for things like say … JQuery). We’d want them to cover JavaScript and Ajax in general of course in a not too biased manner. Time commitment starts at around 1 post (30/45 minutes a week) and is paying at a competitive rate per post. Here are a few examples of the types of coverage we shoot for: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6.

Ajax Freelance

Brandon Mullins (brandon at is looking for someone to help finish the Ajax of Book Mesh:

All of our AJAX images are designed, and the site is 95% completed. However, we are in need of locating a very talented and responsible AJAX pro to work as a direct consultant and freelancer to the BookMesh team, to begin with immediately fixing the kinks in our AJAX functionality (doesn’t work in IE at all, needs to be centered and tidied-up in Firefox & Safari). This same person will be able to stay on board as a freelancer after this small initial task for any and all client-side scripts that we will need, including various Javascript-based feature implementations.

These initial AJAX needs will not take much time at all (~ 7-10 hours), and there may be lots more work in the coming future for the selected freelancer.

Seattle – User Experience Developer

David Golightly (davidgo at points to a a job posting at Zillow:

We have an opening in Seattle at for a User Experience Developer, eg. JavaScript + HTML template ownership, that we’ve been looking to fill for over 6 months with no luck. We’ve interviewed dozens of candidates, but we can’t seem to find people in Seattle who have a JavaScript focus. Considering your large fan base, it would be great if you could put a word in for us, as this would be a golden opportunity for the right kind of person – that is, someone who can play a browser like a violin. While we use YUI here, I have great admiration for the principles of jQuery and would love it if we could find someone with a jQuery background. We’ve got some large, fun, JavaScript-intensive projects coming up over the next year+, now if only we could find a JS fanatic to build them!

Let me know if this post is, at all, useful to those reading it. If it’s not the case then I probably won’t attempt it again, but it is nice to pass these on, at least (especially to those looking or some extra JavaScript or jQuery work).
