Force 5 is hiring a Web front-end designer developer!

Force 5 is a brand development and marketing communications firm on the lovely St. Joseph River in South Bend, IN. We are a seriously smart, fun, group of marketing peeps and geeks! Our office space is very much like a lodge, lots of stone and wood – very peaceful – until the pups run for the doorbell. We do have 3 small office dogs, all loveable and well behaved, aside from the barking at the doorbell thing. If the pack accepts them, you can bring your pup to work! Force 5 has a wide variety of clients and our mission is to do amazing work for them, keep them happy and have fun in the process.

The job is a full-time position, with paid vacation, personal days, holidays, and sick days. We offer our employees health insurance benefits, vision and dental plans.
