We strongly encourage applications from women, racialized people, Indigenous peoples, people from gender-diverse and sexually-diverse communities, people with disabilities (visible or non-visible), people of different religious backgrounds, people with family caregiving responsibilities and/or people with intersectional identities.
What You Will Do
Build smooth, intuitive, and engaging user-facing experiences; as an experienced front-end developer you will be tasked to bring our designs to life. You are equally artist and scientist. You have an eye for design and the skills required to cut clean reusable code.
Participate in planning, wireframe/design reviews, estimation exercises; beyond the code you will be expected to bring ideas to the table to help form our approach and create solutions to solve project needs. This may include recommendations for platforms, frameworks, libraries and more. You will collaborate with our design team to inform the creation of wireframes and designs and review each to consider the implementation efforts. You will help develop estimates for level of effort and be responsible for identifying if a project is on or off track while underway.
Champion quality; You will participate in code reviews and QA your work as well as others on the team to ensure the solution that we are building satisfies the client’s need and works as intended. You have a sense of what edge cases we should consider and anticipate them when doing your work.
Work on the contemporary web too; many of our existing clients are on older monolithic stacks ranging that include WordPress, Shopify (Liquid), among others.
Service and support our roster of existing clients’ websites; You are responsible for maintaining the integrity of our roster of existing websites through monthly health checks, security patches, and ad-hoc development and patches.
Who You Are:
You are a self-starter; you will often own the development responsibilities of the projects you work on. As such, you will be responsible for the prioritization and completion of your tasks. You are not shy to ask questions for clarification or keep the rest of your project team updated with progress.
You are inquisitive; when working on a project you are keen to understand the bigger picture so you can make decisions that best serve desired outcomes. You are not afraid to dig deep into a code base to fully understand why and how something works while working on a feature. You are curious about new technologies and aren’t afraid to step into a new framework or toolset to get the job done and are excited to share your learnings with the greater team.
You know your abilities and when to ask for help; you are confident in your abilities and are comfortable asserting yourself when you have an answer to a problem. You also understand that the success of the project comes first and in a supportive team environment it’s okay to not know the answer and reach out for help so the team can provide support.
You are a person of integrity; you say what you mean, mean what you say, and do what you’ll say you do. You are proactive with communication and leverage a variety of channels to provide timely and appropriate signals to your colleagues.
Why work with us
Being a part of Art & Science allows you to help shape the future of an agency that is just coming into its own. We work in an agency fuelled by intelligent, lively individuals in a culture of support and collaboration. Our agency is growing and we’re looking for confident professionals to support that growth. As a Frontend Web Developer, you’ll be significantly responsible for bringing our collective ideas to life and contributing to award-winning work. You'll be surrounded by a plethora of diverse perspectives, values, client types and projects which means no two days will be the same.
In addition to your salary of $70,000 – $80,000 CAD, your compensation package includes a comprehensive health benefits plan, generous PTO, a flexible schedule and education benefits. This position is remote, though our dev team is actively in the office to take advantage of all the opportunities for collaboration and inspiration. If you're in the Toronto area, we’d love to see you in the office from time to time!
