Senior Full Stack Web Developer

Renga is looking to hire a Senior Full Stack Web Developer to oversee and help deliver on both client and internal projects. We’re looking for someone who is collaborative and curious. Your job will be to take our design files and make them come alive in spectacular and intuitive ways.

This is a role for someone who understands client work and deadlines. Agency experience is preferred, as we often work on projects as a team.

Renga is a small brand strategy & design studio from the Toronto Area. We get excited about building brands for our clients and launching them into the world. We are a remote-friendly team, meaning we work in various locations for most of the time. When there isn’t a global pandemic, we do get together to collaborate on projects face-to-face.

this is us

We love working with people who bring a unique set of interests and experiences to the creative table. Your ability to both adapt to and shape our process is essential.

About the Job

Your role will involve working closely with our Design Team to ensure proper scope, strategy, research, development, and testing are applied to our web based projects. Although the tech stack may very between clients, we are looking for someone who is proficient in Javascript both on the front and back end.

To be successful in this position, we are looking for the following:

  • Experience with a modern front-end framework (React, Angular 2+, Vue, Ember)
  • Experience with Express/Node on the backend
  • Experience with non-relational or relational databases such as MongoDB, MySQL, Postgres, Redis, Cassandra
  • Experience with working with REST APIs, Git, modern UI frameworks (Material UI, Bootstrap, etc.)
  • Experience with microservice architecture
  • Experience working with AWS
  • Ability to communicate effectively with clients and team members
  • Desire to research and learn new technologies

This position is a full-time position.

About You

You’re curious about the world. Curiosity is a core value here at Renga and it’s something we look for in all our people. The desire to want to know how and why are the questions that lead our process and allow us to do our best work.

You’re confident in what you do. We want someone who believes in their ideas, who is proud of their work, and excited to share it with the team for feedback.

You’re experienced. We need someone that has a proven track record of building and launching websites, apps, and products.

You’re able to adapt. At Renga we are constantly learning. It could be a new tool, a new industry, or working with a new colleague. We need someone that can handle change and thrive in it.

You’re comfortable with a remote team. We have a couple spaces where we gather to do in-person work, but we also collaborate through Slack, Notion, Figma and several other tools. We want someone who can work in a decentralized environment and make themselves known.

Why Apply?

You’re looking to join a small team. We’re not a huge agency. To be honest, we’d prefer to stay that way. We believe we are most effective with a quality team of people who love working together.

You hate micromanagement. We thrive in a flexible work environment, giving you the space to do your best work in the way that fits you. We want to hire people who are good at what they do and then trust them to do it.

You want to take on more responsibility. As a relatively young team, everyone plays a role in shaping our processes and laying the groundwork for the next 5–10 years. We’re not looking for people who aren’t excited about our potential.

You want to expand and develop your skillset. Maybe you’ve been doing the same few tasks over and over again in your current role and are looking to do more. We want to make space for you to take on jobs that stretch you and help you become better.
