Who we are:
Pixel Union and Out of the Sandbox are leading designers of premium themes and apps for the Shopify ecommerce platform. We’re focused on helping our merchants — entrepreneurs, innovators, brands, and businesses large and small — succeed by providing them with the world’s best digital products, backed by exceptional customer support.
We are a team of 90+ across all departments, with headquarters in Victoria, BC, and remote team members distributed across Canada and beyond.
About the role:
Pixel Union is looking for an experienced front-end developer to join our Apps team. We're looking for someone who has an eye for the details that can make or break a stand out UX, and is comfortable helping their team put all of the pieces together. If you are looking to build products used by thousands of people and make an impact on their businesses, this could be the role for you!
Success in the role requires a high degree of flexibility and adaptability, a passion for both the practice and the principles of software development, a deep knowledge of front-end development technologies, and a desire to work closely with other developers and designers on the team to ensure all of our apps live up to Pixel Union’s reputation for industry-leading quality.
At Pixel Union we believe that working collaboratively is the best way to write code that won’t slow a team down over time. We do so through pairing and thoughtful code review - we’re comfortable explaining the thinking behind their technical choices and the tradeoffs considered when making them.
