Amber is a gamer at heart; she loves exploring the intriguing worlds created for her and interacting with new elements and interfaces. From gaming she has developed a passion for user-centered design. She got started in design by making her artwork digital, which led her into designing for the web. Although a California native, she loves the cool, refreshing air of the Northwest. In the future, Amber hopes to use her design to help foster care and low-income youth, as a way to thank the many people and foundations of WA State that helped her receive her new life and education.
Al has his own personal story of climate change, from the blistering heat of Indonesia when he was very young to the tolerable heat of California in his teens and finally to the absence of heat in Washington state as an adult. His interests have also migrated over his lifetime, from illustration to video games to video production to web development. Fortunately, he has been able to combine them all at Western Washington University into a Design and New Media degree. As a senior, he is looking forward to the benefits of graduation like having more time to watch horror films.
Bellmobi is a start-up in the mobile web space with established clients and more on the way. We work across mobile, tablets, Kinect and other emerging device types to enable best-in-class customer experiences. We need to add a smart and experienced web developer to our founding team in order to maximize our current partnerships and stay in front of this rapidly changing space.
This talented developer will be part of a small team designing and developing amazing mobile experiences for Fortune 500 clients by leveraging their existing e-commerce desktop sites via a single, unified, cloud-based Web platform. Our agile environment is relaxed but focused and we offer an accelerated career trajectory, a competitive salary, and the opportunity to create and share success.
We are interested in having someone join us at our headquarters in Bellingham, WA situated between Seattle and Vancouver, BC. Bellingham is an ideal place for outdoor enthusiasts, athletes, beards, tattoos, musicians, artists... You can dip in the ocean, paddle board, mountain bike and snowboard on the same day, and drink some great coffee (or microbrew) afterward. We can help the right person relocate. And, best of all no working with Internet Explorer!
