Here’s the impact you’ll make and what we’ll accomplish together:
You are an experienced, hands-on developer who has shipped medium to large-scale applications. You will be a forward thinker who can balance day-to-day pragmatism with an eye for future growth of our platform.

You will be responsible for crafting, building and running the software applications which enable innovative, data-driven, customer centric digital experiences for our customers.

You will be working as part of a friendly, cross-discipline agile team who helps each other solve problems across all functions. As a custodian of customer trust, you will employ best practice in development, security, accessibility and design to achieve the highest quality of service for our customers.

We use a range of technologies to get the job done: JavaScript and Babel (ES2018) coupled with Webpack, React, Redux and other libraries to provide a modern, easy to use Javascript toolchain. A central Design System is used for styling and hosts shared components, while our RESTful APIs are built with Node.js, Postgres and Redis. We also use GraphQL and Apollo. Quality is a primary concern and we test our applications at multiple levels with Automation Testers and Product Owners embedded within teams.

Here’s how:
● Ensure cohesive experience across multiple devices.
● Develop scalable solutions with performance and security in mind.
● Have the dedication to learn and research new technologies.
● Ability to document the workflow whenever it's needed.
● The knowledge on how to work together with others and build solutions.
● Doing code reviews and improvements with other developers.
● Maintaining codebase and making improvements when necessary.
● Document APIs and Components for other Developers.
● Incorporate Accessibility as part of development process.
● Knowledge about database management and architecture.
● Understand what technologies other teams are using.
● Work with designers to help them understand possible technical restrictions.
● Identify problem areas in code & solutions.
● Assist with and rapidly test solutions for the team.

You're the missing piece of the puzzle:

● Shown experience in backend and API development (we use Node.js, PostgreSQL, GraphQL and Redis).
● Validated experience with front-end development (ES2018 JavaScript, modern CSS).
● Proficient in React and Redux.
● Strong experience with writing unit tests (we use Jest on the frontend and Mocha on the backend).
● Experience designing and documenting APIs.
● Experience with FRP (functional, reactive programming).
● Ability to mentor other junior developers.

Great-to-haves:

● Knowledge and experience with TypeScript; we’re hoping to switch to it one day on front-end applications and backend services
● Experience in building scalable production services and monitoring performance (we use Kibana, NewRelic)
● Experience with clustering technologies (we use Kubernetes)
● Familiarity with the Docker ecosystem

We want to work with people who:
● Share our passion for all things digital
● Thrive in an agile, lean and fast-paced environment
● Clearly see things from the perspective of our customers
● Are curious, experiment and never stop learning
● View collaboration as essential to your work
● Utilize the power of data to inform decisions
● Embrace diversity and new ideas
What you can expect from us:
● An environment where you’re encouraged to share and act on your ideas
● Flexible work hours in a central downtown location
● A welcoming, relaxed office with a casual dress code
● A culture committed to giving; every year we donate time and resources in our communities
● Team lunches with a generous supply of healthy snacks
● A fun, dynamic team that works and plays every day; great ideas can come as easily during an impromptu hallway soccer match or social team outing
