We’re Hiring: Junior Web Developer/Programmer

 

Altitude Marketing is looking for a web developer/programmer to assist our web department with maintaining the best possible sites for our clients.

Hours can be flexible as well, as long as the work is getting done, and time is logged in our PM tool.

Preferred locations for the ideal candidate would be either the Lehigh Valley or Pittsburgh, but we’re willing to be flexible for the perfect fit.
