Front-end Web Developpers

Full-time position to be filled in Boucherville (Montreal South Shore).

Job Description

Our technology team is a dynamic group of Front-End and Back-end developers who produce and maintain web and mobile sites and applications for our customers with the goal of generating “Wow” as a reaction to project delivery.

Rather than working with all-in-one CMS (such as Wordpress, Drupal or Joomla), we carry out our projects with platforms (framework) such as Laravel using a template engine such as TWIG in order to have full control over the appearance of our projects.

In collaboration with the Front-End team and the Back-End team, be aware of the good practices at the development level to allow our stack to evolve well over time and make the maintainability of our solutions as easy as possible.

The developer will touch on several platform projects of all kinds, respecting the frameworks and requirements of the specifications but integrating a good dose of personal initiative.
Several projects consist in modifying sites with old platforms, often inherited from other firms (sometimes still in Angular 1, Jquery, vanilla Javascript), but the new projects follow the following technological stack (stack):
PHP Platform: Laravel, in MVC structure  (Maintained by back-end developers)
ORM: Eloquent (Maintained by back-end developers)
Templating: Twig, via Twigbridge 

Collaboration methodology: Gitflow, via Gitlab.
