Senior Web Developer
Founded in 2006, Haven Agency is a group of dedicated digital enthusiasts with the goal of producing outstanding work that delivers measurable results. We’re happy to be located in sunny Southern California, land of freeways and freethinkers. At Haven, we leverage proven methodologies and expertise to deliver impactful digital solutions. Here, cookie-cutter doesn’t cut it. Our agency is all custom, all the time, and no two clients – or projects – are the same. While our primary focus is on creating online projects for the toy, video game, entertainment, and lifestyle markets, we happily welcome clients from outside those industries. Our roster of clients over the years has included: Wizards of the Coast, Riot Games, Blizzard Entertainment, Live Nation, Ticketmaster, House of Blues, Bandai, Monster Energy, MedMen, and more. This is for a full-time position. We are headquartered in Ontario, California, but we are primarily a work-from-home agency. However, you must be located in the United States full-time, and it is a major plus to be located in Southern California. We are primarily looking for a candidate with a robust portfolio, preferably agency experience or experience working on several projects (not just a long-term project for a single client), and we definitely are looking for someone with more experience than just a coding academy or bootcamp.
