Senior Full Stack Developer


Filament Creative inc.

– Accepting applications


We have an opportunity for a Senior Full Stack Developer with top-shelf skills to join our tight and talented team in Toronto (no remote—sorry). You’ll be collaborating closely with strategy, design, and contributing your skills with the Dev team. We are a fast-paced agency with a full pipeline.

You’ll be bringing your existing skill set and helping us evolve our stack on a wide range of projects. We’re currently a very heavy LAMP stack shop but have a number of projects that fall outside this wheelhouse.

You’ll be working with clients like Fitbit, eHealth Ontario, City of Toronto (GreenP), and Toshiba (to name a few) to push unexpectedly clever features and functionality to existing and new web properties and applications. We’d like you to be curious and courageous enough to bring new technologies into the fold. You have a chance to be part of a small team and make a huge impact on how things are done.

Your Personality

The kind of personality we’re looking for is someone who is both detail oriented but also sees the big picture. You’re interested in supporting your team and you enjoy growing your skills by rising to challenges. You’re flexible and open and understand that clients aren’t an impediment to doing great work, rather, they are an opportunity to do your best work. You’re a great communicator who strives to create context and visibility for everyone involved on a project. You use We more than I. You have contributed to the dev community and your passion for technology is clearly demonstrated through development related networks (Codepen, Git) and commentary/opinion channels (Medium, your own blog, Twitter, Instagram).
