By Kimberly Blessing on March 22, 2013

Research > Design > Delight — that’s the Think Brownstone motto. More and more, our clients are asking us to help them delight their customers by developing and delivering the experiences we have designed. That’s why we’re looking for thoughtful and creative UI developers: individuals who are truly passionate about coding for the web (desktop and mobile) using modern web standards and who can integrate their work with a variety of content management solutions and back-end configurations.
