We are an award winning creative tech agency with the ambition of becoming the best. We have offices in Vancouver and London (UK) specializing in mobile, web, interactive installations, UX and AR/VR. Our clients include Sundance Film Festival, HPE, Cisco, Kraft, South by Southwest, BC Liquor Stores, UBC, British Fashion Council, and... you get the idea. We're a fun, fast-moving, small company where you'll definitely see the work you do put into action. We collaborate with ad agencies and event production companies to bring brilliant ideas to life.

What you will do:

  • Work with our team on custom software projects for clients and our own company based internal products
  • Meet with clients and help guide the process of brainstorming the ideal solution for each project
  • Explore new technologies, platforms and methods to continually advance our team
  • Be passionate about good development practices
  • Bring your creativity to the solutions we develop
  • Contribute to creating a cohesive and well organized team

The ideal candidate will have the following:

  • Strong proficiency for PHP development
  • Strong proficiency working with Linux
  • Experience using Symphony or Laravel
  • Real world experience working with Drupal 7 or 8
  • Proficient with SQL (MySQL or PostgreSQL)
  • Proficient with JavaScript, HTML and CSS
  • Proficient working with NGINX, Varnish and Apache

Nice to haves include:

  • Experience with ReactJS, NodeJS, GraphQL, Redux
  • Experience with NoSQL databases (MongoDB, Redis, or DynamoDB)
  • Experience with Git and version management
  • An ability to visualize and contribute to amazing Designs and UX

This is a full-time permanent position working in our Vancouver head office.

We’re a professional yet casual group who work hard in our Yaletown office where we are dog friendly, have beer Fridays, get out for team activities and have drinks and fresh produce brought in. We also get to visit some of the best creative events in the world such as SXSW and Cannes Lions or you can always take advantage of our Tour of Duty and work from our London office.
