Full Stack Developer

Toronto, Ontario  - Permanent

Job Description

Our client is looking for a Full Stack Web Developer to join our team of designers and architects in a role that is key to shipping user-facing code on a daily basis. "Users" for them, as a financial media company, are visitors to their web properties who deeply engage in their investor content and tools across seven powerful domains. Web developers work with cross-functional team members to clarify deliverables; develop, document and test new product features and bug fixes; and review peer written code and provide constructive feedback.

Build products that help people invest their own money using the latest open source technology. They're not a Robo-advisor. They're building for people who want to be involved in making their own investment decisions - the DIY investor. Their goal is to make self-directed investing less overwhelming, more personalized and more consumer friendly.

Join a fast-paced agile team that ships weekly and collaborates cross-functionality with openness and transparency. Their momentum is based on great attitudes and focused drive. They don't always have the answers but look forward to pushing themselves, growing and improving together as a team.

- Test-driven development for both front-end and back-end code.
- Ensure smooth integration between front/back-end code by working closely with a team of developers and QA.
- Establish and document design and UX standards for common components for reuse across all applications.
- Collaborate with team members: subject matter experts, graphic designers, and developers to ensure the effectiveness and quality of the design solution.

Special Perks:

- Competitive salaries, upward mobility and an opportunity to grow professionally with the company.
- Work with experts in Agile development and open source software.
- Opportunity to initiate your own ideas.
- A hungry and ambitious team of professionals who like to have fun along the way.
- Collaborative work environment built on respect, openness and intellectual honesty.
- Paid GO Train, TTC commuting, and parking spaces.
- Newly constructed downtown office space, half a block from King Street subway station.
- Competitive health, dental, and vision benefits.

- Familiarity with Rails or a similar framework.
- Elasticsearch.

- Familiarity with JavaScript frameworks and libraries that support efficient web development (beyond jQuery) - e.g. React, Backbone, Angular, and other open source libraries and frameworks.

- JSON and XML API experience a plus.
- Experience working in an Agile Software Development environment a plus.
- Familiarity with JavaScript-related and CSS-related browser compatibility issues a plus.
