Job Summary: 

Pixel Union is constantly looking for Developers to join its team in Victoria or Vancouver, BC. We’re a small team, dedicated to refining the experience of prefabricated design on the web. We’re looking for core members that want to help customers bring their vision to reality. 

What we’re looking for:

  • You need to love what you do and be excited to keep up-to-date with the latest and greatest techniques.
  • The ideal candidate has 3 years of hands on experience in the development space coupled with a solid understanding of core programming concepts, theories and patterns, and the ability to apply the correct ones to a given problem.
  • You have experience with Shopify and have worked with Liquid and Timber.
  • You aren’t afraid of CoffeeScript or Sass. You love HTML5, CSS3, Angular and JavaScript. You’re comfortable with Photoshop and Sketch.
  • We prefer people who also have experience outside of development so you can bring perspective to your work; an understanding of how real people use technology.
  • Experience with Ruby on Rails would be ideal.

What you’ll be doing:

  • Collaborating closely with other developers and designers building theme products for a variety of platforms (Tumblr, Wordpress, Shopify, Ghost, etc.).
  • Managing and refining our back catalogue—squashing bugs, adding features, making the user experience better.
  • Creating tools to make everyone’s job easier. Including your own.

What we offer:

  • Exciting work. Tesla Motors, MoMA, and Snoop Dog (Snoop Lion?) all use our themes. You’ll be working on products that people know and love.
  • Flexible work. We don’t want you to get burnt out or bored. We’re happy to shuffle you around production lines every now and then to mix things up.
  • Flexible work hours. We all meet at the office between 2 and 4pm, but otherwise you set your own work hours. It’s all about maintaining quality and knocking off deadlines.
  • Unlimited vacation time. We want you to be doing the best work of your life. That means managing burn out and taking some time to develop yourself culturally.
