Career: Front End Developer

cStreet Campaigns is a digital agency that develops tools and strategies to win change.

We have a roster of exceptional international clients & partners who are making real impact in politics, the environment, labour relations, education and human rights, to name a few. We work with cutting edge tools like NationBuilder and Hustle, and pride ourselves on being experts in how to use the tools to get the most out of the platforms.

The job

Our clients come to us with really specific mandates: to win campaigns, to communicate their missions, to increase engagement with their supporters, to name a few. We’re looking for a thoughtful developer who can understand what our clients are trying to accomplish and work collaboratively with our team to win. This includes, but isn’t limited to, developing and testing websites, bulk email themes and working with the team to execute large and small projects to perfection.  

We’re looking for someone who can think big and take risks.

You will

  • Develop mobile-first websites based on designs made in Sketch

  • Help set up client websites

  • Carry out minor revisions to past projects or supporting ongoing live campaigns

  • Work with our Creative Director and Lead Developer to test for bugs, browser and mobile compatibility of client properties

  • Ensure compliance with basic principles of web accessibility, AODA.

  • Present your work to clients

  • Develop documentation for end users

Skills and Requirements

  • Be a complete boss with HTML, JavaScript, CSS (and be current with new trends and features in web development)

  • Love CSS. It’s not enough to tolerate it, you need to embrace it

  • Have some background designing for the web, or working closely with web ux/ui designers

  • Be committed to pixel-perfect development

  • Familiarity with SASS, Liquid, Ruby on Rails, JQuery & AJAX prefered

  • Passion for progressive politics and social change issues

  • Take initiative, and solve problems and work collaboratively

  • Familiarity with NationBuilder is prefered but not required

You should be:

Progressive and want to change the world. You count yourself a member of the #resistance. You think legislation to control catastrophic climate change is a better idea than dangerous pipelines. You think First Nations people have a right to self-determination and nationhood. You believe that impactful creative can change minds and inspire people to action.

We welcome and encourage folks who identify as members of marginalized communities to apply including Indigenous Peoples, people of colour, women, people identifying as LGBTQI, members of ethnic minorities, immigrants, and people with disabilities.
