The main focus of accessibility review at our company is around WCAG 2.1 but the larger goal is to improve site usability as a whole with a universal design mindset. At Americaneagle.com we have a strong passion for improving the web for all users and helping educate all industries and clients on the major benefits of focusing on accessibility. Industries across the board have lost the basic concepts and principals that we are wanting to foster and educate. We are looking for candidates that have the same level of advocacy and dedication. That strong sense of communication, teamwork, pride, proactivity, ownership, and organization are all keys to success at Americaneagle.com.
Americaneagle.com was recently named by Built in Chicago as one of the best places to work and to Inc.com's list of 5000 fastest-growing private companies for the past seven years.
