Hey! Paper Leaf is an award-winning digital product agency located in Edmonton, AB. We design & develop innovative custom websites, web applications, and mobile applications –and we are looking to add another full-time*Web Developer*to our current team to help us do that. We have a fun, relaxed & flexible environment; a tight-knit team where your voice is heard; a variety of challenging, rewarding, and creative work; and room for professional development. It’s a good place to be, and while we're currently remote during the pandemic, we do anticipate working back in a traditional office space at least part-time when we return.
With that said, this is a remote position for now, but applicants should be able to travel to Edmonton, Alberta and work from our office at least two days every week. Applications from anywhere in Alberta will be considered. We will also accept applications from anywhere in Canada if you’d like to move to Alberta.
We work on projects for clients across the globe, and you'll be working on a team that values high-quality execution – not one that is hellbent on burning you out and churning out as much work as possible. You can learn more about our work on the Portfolio page , our team on our About page, and get a good vibe of our culture from our Instagram feed. Sometimes mission statements are bogus, but we believe in ours: to help businesses and organizations grow through elegant execution of design and technology.
As well, we believe that diversity in all regards contributes to a broader collective perspective that will consistently improve Paper Leaf and the work we do. We are working hard to increase the diversity of our team wherever we can and we actively encourage everyone to consider becoming a part of it.
The Junior Web Developer position at Paper Leaf (like all of our development positions!) is a full-stack one – and will involve work on everything from server setups to CSS fine-tuning. You'll be working in a modern web development environment (git, version control, etc) on large/complex content managed sites (primarily WordPress – custom builds, not theme customizations), eCommerce sites, web applications (Laravel, React) and mobile applications (React Native) for clients ranging from established businesses to international organizations and government corporations.
Your focus will be on growing as a developer, and learning the tools, resources, and processes you’ll need to take your career at Paper Leaf forward. We realize the technical expectations are a big ask – especially as a junior, we don’t expect you to know or have experience in everything right off the bat. A willingness and ability to learn is a big asset. Don’t avoid applying if you are lacking in some of the below areas; if you have a desire to learn, we can help you get there!
At Paper Leaf, our developers are involved in projects from their inception, working with a consistent tight-knit, cross-functional team. You aren’t left in the dark until you’re handed a design file. You’re not only involved in the execution of the end product – you’re involved in the brainstorming & problem-solving parts of your projects, including production strategy meetings, code reviews, and more.
Your role is crucial to the success of the company, our clients, and their projects.
Are you the ideal candidate for this position? We’re looking for someone who…
To be considered for the position, here’s what you’ll have:
If you don’t meet one or two of these requirements, but still feel you’d be a good fit, throw your hat in the mix anyway. You miss every shot you don’t take. Oh, and experience in Laravel and React is a plus, but not required.
What We Offer
This full-time, salaried position is normally out of our downtown office in Edmonton, but we’re all working from home for the foreseeable future due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We offer a relaxed & fun working environment; flexible start and end times to your days, and the opportunity for 4 day weeks if you want; a compensation package that includes a competitive salary, benefits, vac time, and bonus structure; the opportunity to work on interesting, challenging, and meaningful projects; professional development opportunities; and more.
We are always looking for the right candidates to help us grow, and will be in contact with those we wish to connect with for an interview. Thanks!
