Jet Cooper is growing and we’re looking for a talented, savvy and all-round badass front-end developer to join our family.
Front-end developers at Jet Cooper aren’t just front-end developers. Yes, you’re expected to be proficient in all the technical stuff – HTML, CSS, JS – but you’re also expected to understand how all of that fits into delivering exceptional user experiences. And that starts at Day 0, not at day 60 when decisions have already been locked in and promised. No. As a front-end developer you’ll work alongside one of our brilliant designers from the get-go to conceptualize and build usable interfaces and interactions that have real impact on real people.
Your mandate is to make smart and scalable decisions around the technology that brings our work to life. And because there are no layers between you and the client, you’re expected to be able to speak intelligently to (and sometimes defend) those decisions that you make. Strong verbal and written communication are the backbone to succeeding here.
You should also understand that design isn’t just for designers. That means that you think actively about design systems and even adjust the padding on the odd occasion a designer slips a pixel. That also means that you see and respect the fact that you’re an essential half to a cohesive UX-driven ecosystem.
We look to our front-end developers to adopt and extend standards for teammates and partners. To do that well, you have to have a keen understanding of design and development workflows. We also expect experimentation to be part of your own workflow and would encourage you to evangelize the progressive technologies that you believe in. Fortunately, we give you 10% of your week to do just that.
If you can build a custom plugin with WordPress, that’s an asset. If you have working experience with MVC’s, even better. If you’re passionate about building meaningful experiences for people just like you (and others that might not be just like you), then you should definitely get in touch.
How to Apply
If all of this sounds like your cup of tea, you’re encouraged to send your resume and a portfolio of work to email@example.com. Adding “Toronto Front-End Developer” to your subject will even help us find your application faster.
We’ll contact suitable candidates right away. You’ll have a chance to learn more, ask questions, and visit us.
