Looking at a web design job for a blogger? Being proficient in Jekyll would be beneficial to obtaining this job. Jekyll is used to build static websites from dynamic mechanisms such as templates, partials, markdown, liquid code, etc. This software is not a blogging software. Meaning it does not come with content, templates or design any elements. The graphic designer still has to make all the components to building the website. Jekyll is about being more efficient in creating a blog site for the consumer.
