Description:
Keynote Group an Ottawa executive search firm is seeking an Web Application Developer for an Ottawa job to join our growing Ottawa operations.

 

Keynote Group is currently seeking a Web Application Developer for this permanent fulltime position at an amazing company in Ottawa East. Our client has a vibrant and exciting corporate culture and with their unprecedented growth needs to grow their team. As a member of this lean web team you are going to gain amazing experience. Your day will consist of 75% front end development and 25% back-end.

 

In short what we need: A Web Application Developer that has a solid foundation in the core technical skills (I mention these below) as well as a desire and drive to learn new skills and move themselves and the products they are tasked with forward. Bottom line: Someone super keen to grow their experience, you will learn more here and get exposure to more than anywhere else.

What we really need: What we are hoping to find is someone with 2-5 years’ experience in the field (not 4 months here and there on coop, research project or as an internship). From a skills standpoint, the successful candidate should have experience creating web applications. That experience can be in the form of extensions, plugin development, or some other form of web application. Either way they should have a solid foundation in jQuery, JavaScript, html5, and css, front end frameworks like Bootstrap, and experience working with REST API’s as well as an eye for design and user experience. The Developer should also have some experience with WordPress, Python and PHP as this candidate will work on our client’s website. From a non-technical standpoint the candidate should be highly driven, eager to learn new skills (and you will), and willing to contribute ideas for new products as well as drive existing product forward.

What we need from you:

  • You are ready to take on the challenge of continuing development and integration of existing web applications.
  • You are into innovation, and have great ideas for new products and features and can assist in the development of new plugins.
  • You’re web savvy and have solid knowledge and ideally experience with WordPress and PHP development.
  • You have an eye for great design and can assist in UI and UX development.
  • You’ve worked with front end frameworks like bootstrap for example.
  • You are proactive and own issues from beginning to end.
  • You are looking for a career, for growth and being part of a fast growing team.
  • You are able to focus on competing simultaneous requests yet are detail focused.
  • You’ve worked in a Scrum environment.

Skills Required:

  • PHP
  • HTML 5
  • CSS
  • Jquery, JavaScript
  • Front end frameworks (bootstrap, etc…)
  • Python
  • Web development experience (extensions, plugins, etc.…)

 

Nice to Have (Would be awesome and you would really wow us!):

  • Google Analytics
  • Google Tag Manager
  • Responsive web design, knowledge & best practices (send us examples!)
  • Experience developing and customizing WordPress themes and plugins
  • Experience integrating with Rest API’s
