Software Developer - UI, Javascript

Product Development Vancouver, BC


Description

This role will be a 3-6 month contract with the possibility of extension. 

We are looking for a talented front-end developer to join our UI Architecture team for a special project. This is a challenging position that will provide valuable experience in data handling, REST, Redux, React, internationalization, and much more.

You will work closely with our senior developers on a project to port features from our old Ember framework to our new React/Redux framework. We will provide training for the specific areas and tasks you will work on, so prior experience with these frameworks is not required.

This is not a job for a beginner. You must have strong Javascript skills and at least intermediate front-end experience, be a fast learner, and arrive every day with a “can do” attitude.

Responsibilities Include:

  • Create components in our RESTful communications layer
  • Create data-parsing helpers to transform data into an optimal format
  • Create data models for moving data in and out of our custom Redux store
  • Create React component prototypes that are connected to the Redux store
  • Create unit tests for all items you create, using Enzyme and Jest
  • Parse information from Ember MVC files
  • Participate in all scrum team activities
  • Work with all team members, supporting each other as needed

What You Need:

  • Good communication skills
  • 1+ years of professional experience as a Javascript developer
  • Hands on experience with ES6 and other modern Javascript tools and practices
  • Experience working with RESTful endpoints is highly desirable
  • Experience with React and/or Redux is desirable, but not a requirement
