Web Developer

Arctic Leaf
Remote Full Time Front End Development

Arctic Leaf Inc. is a US and Canadian-based UI/UX design and development agency that specializes in E-Commerce and web-based application services. Our bottom-of-the-funnel focus separates us from other agencies in the market, and thus are struggling to keep up with demand! We are looking for an addition to the team who is flexible and enjoys working with others in a team-oriented environment.

Having recently gone through a merger, we have consistently grown year over year, and we are looking to maintain this growth, the ideal candidate will possess the desire to assist in this growth and collaborate on different trends to identify key strengths and opportunities. 

Our fast-growing team needs a new Web Developer! You will learn everything there is to know about making world-class websites. Our agency is not married to any specific technologies, so you will work with whatever tools best meet our client's needs; however, the majority of our clients are E-Commerce merchants with stores on BigCommerce or Shopify. Clients come to us with problems, and you will build the solution!

This position is a full-time position. You will work closely with other members of the development team as well as the Technical Director.

NOTE: 2-5 year commitment preferred.

Benefits & Perks

    • World-class training and resources.
    • Mature business process framework and infrastructure so that you can hone in on your own skills and what you do best.
    • The position includes paid time off. PTO accrues and is made available after the successful completion of the probationary period.
    • The position includes health benefits which are made available after 90 days.
    • RRSP/TFSA matching contribution available after 6 months of employment.

NOTE: Starting pay varies depending on experience.

  • Add new features and functionality to existing E-Commerce sites.
  • Create custom integrations between E-Commerce platforms and third-party applications.
