Position Summary:

Reporting to the UI Architects, this position assists in building cutting edge user interfaces utilizing the latest development techniques and best practices. As part of the core services team, you will help shape the future of the design and layout of our enterprise application while supporting and enhancing the UI guidelines.

Are you our ideal candidate? You would be someone who knows what buy-vs-build is and when each is appropriate; you’re just as comfortable writing vanilla HTML, CSS & JavaScript as you are using Bootstrap or React. You know what prototypal inheritance is and its pros & cons. You take joy in the challenges of working on large, complex codebases.

Key Responsibilities:

  • Provide expert development skills using HTML, CSS, JavaScript and jQuery under the directions of the UI Architects to support UI consistency and uniformity throughout our application
  • Execute tasks independently on an initial creative vision/direction, with limited supervision from other UI team members
  • Troubleshoot and debug cross-browser inconsistencies
  • Help to support enterprise application UI/UX Initiatives
  • Provide ongoing debugging of UI development issues while developing application enhancements
  • Participate in team meetings and provide UI oversight as required

Required Experience:

  • Degree/Diploma in Engineering, Computer Science or related program
  • 6+ years of experience in web development (HTML, CSS, JavaScript, jQuery, etc.)
  • Working understanding of Java and JSP
  • In-depth knowledge of cross-browser/platform constraints
  • Firm understanding of software development principals & methodologies
  • Strong grasp of UI/UX principals and work-flow design
  • Exceptional communication skills, with the ability to clearly articulate technical direction both written and orally

Nice-to-have:

  • Experience with common wire framing tools and the ability to provide UI mockups
  • Mobile/hybrid application development skills
  • Familiarity with build processes (maven/ant/npm)

Working at PointClickCare goes beyond the resume, because the work we perform makes a true difference in people’s lives. We build innovative healthcare technology for seniors and their caregivers that improve their quality of life and well-being on a daily basis. We believe work is so much more meaningful when you’re doing it with a higher purpose.
