As the Front End Engineer, you will design, develop, and implement client-facing and internal web and mobile applications. You will be actively involved in designing new application features and functionality, writing API’s, and ensuring scalability as well as maintainability of improvements. You will use your extensive experience and expertise to support and evaluate a multi-tier environment, as well as to provide recommendations for additional infrastructure or software required to support the web application. You will also participate in the project architecture exercise and take ownership of ongoing project data architecture, and may be able to produce rapid prototypes for projects. You will provide support and enhancements to existing production applications in a timely and accurate manner, while ensuring consistency of design elements and interactive behaviours within individual pages/forms/components and across entire projects.
You won’t be doing this all alone of course! You will meet and interact with Questrade’s user-interface team, enterprise architects, back-end engineers and front-end engineers as needed in order to elicit, define, analyze and document requirements for new applications. Needless to say, you will go above and beyond by actively participating in defining and implementing best practices, standards and procedures, including quality and delivery methodologies. You will be key to ensuring the quality and reliability of code from intermediate developers by conducting smoke tests and code reviews. You will also demonstrate your team spirit by assisting and supporting your team members on multiple projects and support the Team lead in making technical decisions and development estimates. Throughout it all, you will also ensure compliance with the documented software processes and procedures throughout the life cycle of software products.
