Are you a current post-secondary student looking for a winter co-op opportunity?

Do you want to work with a thriving and creative agency?

Are you looking for a role that explores web development? 

If you answered yes, then you’re in the right place!

Let me start by introducing myself.

Hi, I’m Lorraine and I’m a Senior Front End Developer at Major Tom. I’m a two-time BCIT grad, mountain biker, and bulldog mom. Working closely with me, you’ll have the added benefit of hearing the dogs snoring away during Zoom calls. 

I’ve been with Major Tom for three and a half years and I’m looking forward to working alongside a passionate co-op this January.

This is what your day to day could look like:

  • Collaborating with our back end, UX and UI design teams
  • Working on high-end WordPress sites
  • Potential to support with Shopify and other eCommerce projects
  • Maintenance projects or tasks on sites we have created in the past

Here is the type of experience I’m looking for:

  • Javascript (ES6), HTML5, CSS3 skills
  • Experience working on/building WordPress themes
  • Experience with cross browser testing and a development style that is backwards compatible with older browsers
  • General understanding of responsive design, and experience building fully responsive sites 
  • A keen eye for detail

If you have any of the below that’s awesome, but not essential:

  • Experience with PHP and server side templating
  • A general understanding of SEO, usability best practice, and UX design
  • Knowledge of accessibility standards and experience implementing (WCAG)
  • Experience with Sketch or Invision

Here are the tools we work with daily:

  • Twig
  • Webpack / Gulp
  • NPM
  • Git
  • SASS
  • Sketch
  • Invision
  • VSCode

If this role sounds like a fit for you, I look forward to receiving your resume, reading your application questions and getting to know you.

This is a paid, full time position from January to April 2021.

This position is supported by a government wage subsidy program. Applicants who meet the following criteria are encouraged to apply: 

  • Either a Canadian Citizen, permanent resident or a protected person defined by the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act;
