Front-End Engineer / Web Developer

Engineering | Vancouver, BC, Canada

Job Description

About Us:

Axiom Zen is an idea catalyst and software development consultancy. A collective of entrepreneurs, hackers, hustlers, and designers. We create, advise, and develop technology for iconic companies building the future of digital life. We practice agile development, take pride in a collaborative culture, and swing for home runs. We focus on shipping products that are commercially exciting or socially essential, and practice an end-to-end approach, carrying each concept from ideation to production to market launch and beyond.


We are looking for talented web developers and front-end engineers to join our core team in Vancouver, Canada (or remote). The ideal candidate will be comfortable working with a small and fast-paced team, taking on significant responsibilities, and pushing the boundaries of what's possible with code.  We're looking for talented engineers who love everything on the front-end, CSS3, HTML5, and JavaScript, and are comfortable building and maintaining large applications with exceptional reliability and UX. We want you to be challenged, rewarded, and empowered. To work on products that millions of people will love to use, products that make the world safer, more efficient. 


Real Artists Ship. We live by that motto, and love to hire folks with a demonstrated record of curiosity and resourcefulness - often manifested through the building of products. Key skills required:

  • Very comfortable in HTML/CSS3 and preferably also Javascript
  • 4+ years overall experience as a web developer, preferably on scalable, data-driven, distributed web applications and/or high-traffic web or mobile web properties with exceptional UI/X
  • Solid understanding of web design and development best practices, responsive web design, coding, debugging, and testing patterns.
  • Experience with agile software development methodologies and productivity tools 
  • Awesome human

Bonus Points:

  • Design and UX expertise
  • Expertise developing for the mobile web (HTML5)
  • Familiarity with MVC frameworks, particularly node.js / backbone.js / ember.js / coffeescript
  • Active Facebook API developer
  • Previous start-up experience
  • Creator or contributor to an open source project
  • Experience building Chrome/Firefox extensions
  • Experience in web or mobile performance and optimization


Our perks are always evolving, and all employees share equally with senior management. We provide full life and AD&D insurance as well as premium vision, dental, and extended health care benefits. The team receives quarterly credits to exciting products & experiences as well as additional bonuses as the company achieves milestones. We believe time outside of the office helps us think outside the box, and using great products helps us build them better. 

Axiom Zen runs on a dual model: we drive healthy revenue but also invest in R&D for the future. Between our stock options and equity ownership plans and our contributions to traditional retirement programs, you can rest easy that a career with us is well rewarded. We are also very keen on supporting intellectual growth, and will provide financial support for courses, seminars, certification, and degree programs as appropriate for long-term employees.
