Reporting to the Engineering Lead you will be developing a responsive web-based (Svelte/React/Vue.js) multi-sided application to manage events planning, scheduling, signups, registrations, check-ins, interviewing process, calendars, reports, and geo-location based SMS notifications for one of our latest initiatives. You’ll be involved in every aspect of the project, working with members of the engineering and business teams.
You’re a seasoned developer who is passionate about building quality software on highly visible projects that support mission critical use cases. You have a broad technical base using front-end libraries/frameworks such as Svelte, React, Vue invoking GraphQL and REST Node.js based APIs. You’re experienced with working in a continuous delivery environment. Though grounded in your core tech stack, you’re also curious and like to stay on top of emerging software trends. You love building software and are proud to own the product you’ve build over its lifetime.
Above all of this you’re a team player, putting “we” before “me” because you know that lone wolves – however skilled they might be – have no place in place like MaRS. You collaborate closely with your team and are able to take initiative without close supervision.
