About ShareDesk:

ShareDesk is a Vancouver born startup that’s changing the way the world works. We empower companies to manage and optimize their office space through beautifully simple software and apps.

“So what do you need me for?” You might be asking.

Our team is looking for a passionate and talented Front-End Developer to play the crucial role of evolving our web platform and applications.

As our Senior Front-End Developer, you will work alongside a dedicated, entrepreneurial team of product experts while taking ownership over the code you ship. You’ll make decisions that have a direct impact on our business, every single day.

We need you to contribute technical expertise to all aspects of our software development process, from planning and architecture through to testing, deployment and maintenance. That being said, we’re looking for people that can leverage their experience to add value to our team – we’re more interested to see how your unique perspective can help our team succeed rather than the specific languages you can code in.

As part of your application, we would love to see examples of work you have done that you are proud of – professional or personal. That’s more important to us than ticking all the boxes below!

What we are looking for in a successful candidate

  • Knowledge of the ins and outs of HTML and CSS
  • On top of their game with vanilla Javascript – we use AngularJS
  • Experience on large-scale SPAs, front-end build tools (e.g. Gulp, Grunt), and CSS pre-compilers – we use SASS
  • Understanding cross-browser compatibility issues and ways to work around them
  • Experience with complex layouts, responsive design & flexbox
  • Ability to effectively communicate on a small team that moves fast
  • Experience with version control – we use Git

Bonus points for

  • An academic background in computer science
  • Experience working with APIs, PHP, MySQL
  • Experience with cloud hosting providers such as AWS, or similar
  • Experience with unit and integration tests
  • Comfort using Linux command line tools
  • Experience with continuous integration and deployments through Docker
  • Experience doing Javascript performance optimisation
  • Good understanding of SEO principles

We take care of our teammates

This is a unique opportunity to join a rapidly growing technology startup. Taking care of our team on this journey is a priority. We offer:

  • Competitive salary compensation
  • Employee stock options
  • Teammates that really care about what they do
  • Personal and professional growth
  • Health and fitness program
  • A beautiful Gastown workspace with ocean and mountain views as well as flexible work options
