The opportunity:

We’re looking for an outstanding front-end developer who can quickly understand relevant portions of our back-end systems to implement beautiful, functional and responsive websites and applications.

As a member of our growing Digital Technology team, you’ll work with a group of architects, analysts, and developers dedicated to creating engaging, high quality digital products. Your focus will be building and maintaining single-page applications or websites, based on wireframes and visual comps from UX design colleagues and leveraging our enterprise back-end systems.


This might be the role for you if:

  • You’re a front-end expert with the ability to rapidly master new web technologies and techniques.
  • You have a knack for innovative solutions and see challenges as puzzles to be solved—not roadblocks.
  • You’re an advocate for the user and believe in a customer-centric approach to digital products.
  • You’re collaborative and team-minded, while also being capable of independent self-direction.
  • You’re capable of managing multiple priorities and activities and can work comfortably through uncertainty and change.
  • You have strong verbal and written communication skills, including requirements-gathering and liaising with non-technical team members on technical subjects.


Your everyday with us will consist of:

  • Creating, maintaining, and troubleshooting single-page web applications that integrate data from various back-end services and databases.
  • Writing reusable code, templates, styles and libraries.
  • Getting familiar with team standards, tools and frameworks and helping to mature front-end development standards.
  • Delivering high-quality applications through test-driven development and web automation, peer review and QA processes.
  • Managing individual project priorities, deadlines and deliverables within our project management practice.
  • Staying current with emerging technologies/industry trends and applying them through operations and activities.


What you need to succeed:

  • University degree or college diploma in Computer Science or similar program.
  • 4+ years working experience doing UX/UI development for software, websites, or web applications which leverage current technologies.
  • Strong knowledge of JavaScript and extensive experience with frameworks or libraries such as Vue.js, React.js or Angular.
  • Deep understanding of responsive design requirements and WCAG 2.1 level AA accessibility guidelines.
  • Strong knowledge of CSS, SASS/LESS, and frameworks such as Bootstrap.
  • Strong knowledge of HTTP and RESTful integration patterns as well as containerization such as Docker or Kubernetes.
  • Proficient understanding of Git and GitFlow.
  • Experience working in Agile methodologies such as Scrum or Kanban.
  • Knowledge of cloud technologies is considered an asset.
  • Knowledge of Java is considered an asset.

We would like to thank all candidates for expressing interest.  Please note only those selected for interviews will be contacted.
