We’re looking for a results driven, self-motivated Front End Web Developer with a passion for UX/UI, mobile first design, and healthy site speed. Our work crosses a wide variety of teams, applications, and technology stacks within Mindable - so collaboration and communication are as important as writing new code. We are currently looking for an additional developer/designer to join our busy Tech team to help us continue to deliver exceptional user experiences.

Who are we and what do we do?

We are a team of unique individuals who do the un-doable everyday. Through innovation, outside the box thinking and painstaking testing, we continually redefine what is possible. We are, first and foremost, a cross-functional team of web designers, marketers, developers and analysts working collectively to take a tech start-up out of the basement and onto Deloitte’s top 50 fastest growing tech Companies in Canada (ranked #14 in 2015). We are looking for someone who will add their uniqueness to our own, and make us stronger for it!

We focus heavily on content and products in the self discovery and personal transformation space, with over 20 product lines serving in excess of 142 countries. This means we work hard in a very dynamic and fast paced environment. We’ve got over 50 employees worldwide, and a team of 25 in-house. We empower our team to come up with new ideas, to test, and to analyze them. It's this freedom that has created much of our success.

We work hard, and we play hard. Staff events such as parties, retreats, and team building exercises are all a part of who we are, and what sets us apart from a standard 9-5. We need people who take initiative and are self-motivated to continue to learn, grow, and challenge themselves. At Mindable, we’re different, and not just on paper!
