Praized Media is looking for a bleeding-edge and curiousalicious front-end web developer.
Working with the Praized (small and dedicated) Dev Team, you will have the opportunity to define with us the core concepts of a novel way to handle local data and be responsible for the implementation of the Praized Platform front-ends (yes, there's several). Strong track record with cutting edge Ruby on Rails + AJAX deployments and solid knowledge CSS and browser quirks (internet exploderâ€¦ sigh!) is a must. At least 3-5 years of scars are probably what you need to qualify, but we like fast learners so take a chance with us if you have less but think you are a hotshot coder.
Knowledge of front-to-back-end development is a must, as you will be working with a pack of wolves doing the development of a distributed and atomized data platform. You need to be passionate about user experience and still understand how things are handled on the low-level. Proficiency in Ruby on Rails and fluency in post-agile work environments are major bonuses (and tolerance for management overloading corporate statements with buzzwords, but you get the gist). Interest in microformats, XUL, web APIs and blogs will be received with joyful exclamations.
Capacity to handle over average smart VP of product management (that might kick butt playing the Playstation) and beyond clueful CEO (running one of the top 10 design blog according to the Times) can't hurt. Those able to speak their minds and that have a track record of doing so on the interwebs (mailing lists, forums, blogs) will definitely be considered first (as long as you can handle your CTO posting a rebuttal about your latest insight on your own blog).
We are a bunch of hard-working, over-confident but humble crew. We do have a different perspective on work/life balance, we all have kids and happy significant others, if that tells you something. We were recently funded and are quite aggressive in defining the space at the intersection at local+social. If our motto â€œtrust your tribesâ€ rings true with you, we might want to meet. If you can entertain us on why Facebook â€œadd a friend featureâ€ is broken and why del.icio.us is so awesome, please do!
You can polish you resume before sending it to us (txt, rtf, pdf or odf) but rest assured, we will google your name for additional information (feel free to do the same with us!). Any RSS feeds we can subscribe too (blog, del.icio.us, flickr, whatever) is a good way to make sure we connect on many levels.
This position is entitled with market level compensation (for the Montreal, awesome cultural environment provided for free!) and option plan. Extra flexibility for setting up your work environment and telecommute included in this offer. We are â€œresult orientedâ€ and beyond management speak it means you are what you ship (and we are too).
Cette offre d'emploi est rÃ©digÃ©e en anglais afin de parcourir le rÃ©seau global sans entrave, but we sure do consider your capacity to express yourself in multiple languages and your multi-cultural heritage as a definite advantage.
