Full-Time Position

The Full Stack Web Developer (Node/React) will be a passionate digital guru who’s excited by what technology can achieve and is up for a challenge. Someone who likes writing code that’s clean, concise, modular and reusable, using the latest industry tools and techniques. Someone that doesn’t blindly do tasks but works with the team to understand the why, while at the same time offering suggestions and improvements.

We offer a competitive salary with generous salary sacrificing options and a real work/life balance.

  • Thinker and a self-starter who looks past merely doing a task and asks WHY a task needs to be done, and offers suggestions on doing it differently or better 
  • Write modular, reusable, responsive, accessible, standards compliant HTML, CSS and JavaScript with the ability to self-QA, testing own code across browsers and devices and debugging as needed. 
  • Proficient understanding of and experience using the latest ES6+ JavaScript features, advanced Javascript frameworks (ReactJS preferred) and Node.js. 
  • Solid understanding of asynchronous request handling, partial page updates and AJAX
  • Experience with developing to industry standards including responsive designs, W3C standards & SEO best practices.
