Description

We’re looking for a full-time Front-End Developer.

We need an agile front-end developer that can use web technologies, along with a strong understanding of user experience, to solve big content problems. You’ll work closely with our design team to build out big systems that focus on efficiency and ease of use. You’ll use web standards and best practice (and some old fashioned vim and vigor) to create elegant code and engaging interfaces.

We’re not going to tell you what to do – we’re counting on you to figure out the real problem and how to solve it. We need someone that’s not afraid to ask questions or pipe up with new ideas. We want you to be ready, willing, and excited. You’ll be building content types, views, forms, displays, and templates (using a combination of HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and Twig) in Drupal. You’ll also work in JavaScript frameworks like VueJS to build out dynamic pages that may have headless Drupal or Laravel as a back-end application. You’ll also need to get familiar and comfortable with our Git workflow, and be able to push code and configuration through to multiple environments.

As our next front-end developer, you’ll be joining either our Edmonton, AB or Vancouver, BC offices.

Responsibilities

  • Build out Drupal content types, displays, views, paragraphs, and configure modules for complex sites
  • Work closely with our design team to collaborate on a clear vision for our clients
  • Translate wireframes and style guides into Drupal templates and entities
  • Use JavaScript frameworks like VueJS to build out front-end templates for headless Drupal or other back-end applications
  • Work with a wide range of web services to display static and dynamic content
  • Build and document easy-to-use content author interfaces
  • Collaborate with the rest of the development team to solve problems and make things better
  • Find better ways to deliver projects all the time
  • Work with content authors and clients to make their tasks easier so they can create better content
