Voxter Communications Inc

Front End Developer

Software Development – Vancouver, British Columbia
Department Software Development
Employment Type Full-Time
Minimum Experience Mid-level

OH, HELLO THERE!

We're a Vancouver based VOIP company that is on the rise and we are enthusiastically chucking out the old methods of business communication and replacing them with our shiny new platform and sophisticatedly simple software - which has been rocking the world of our business clients since we launched with our first customer in 2005.  In short, we make business communication run smoother than a fresh jar of skippy.

Since 2005 we’ve grown to have hundreds of clients across the globe. We have POPs in San Jose, London, Tokyo, LA, Melbourne, Chicago, Toronto, and Vancouver (to name a few). Our goal is not only to continue to expand (we aim for world domination!), but to shake up how the world looks at business telecom and create an experience that our clients actually love to use!

Having been recently acquired by Ooma Inc, we’re poised for growth and in a unique position to build out our already passionate and dedicated team.


WHAT ARE WE LOOKING FOR?

What’s your part in all this? We’re looking for a full time Front End Applications developer to join our growing team! We’ll count on you to be responsible for developing and delivering reliable, scalable front end applications. Your work is fundamental as it will directly impact our user experience and interface (no pressure!)

This role is tailor made for someone who has a strong interest in writing tested, idiomatic and documented Angular JS with a strong understanding of User Experience and User Interface principles. Working closely with our kick-ass development team, you will create and document solutions, feasibility of implementation and estimation for requests. You’re someone who knows that code can be “perfectly lyrical” or “quick and dirty” but your code is significantly better than “good enough.” You’re ambitious and take pride in the work you deliver. You’re agile, analytical and creative and your eye for detail makes you amazing at what you do. You understand how your product influences and affects the end user and that motivates you to build a better experience.

We’re looking for someone who is detail oriented, a natural problem solver, and can easily manage having multiple projects on the go at once. We are extremely passionate about what we do, and what we’ve built – and we’re looking for someone who is as passionate about their work as we are. We’re not an ordinary company, and we don’t expect you to be ordinary either. If you’re someone with a natural affinity for technology, who thrives in a fast-paced environment, then keep reading!
