Acro Media is looking for a React Developer to help build out solutions to drive our dynamic & interactive client Web sites.

That’s done. Now here’s what we really want. Some cool individual who loves but is not owned by the code. Someone who can drop lines of code like it’s their native tongue but still talk to our crew comfortably and sometimes even the odd client.

We consider ourselves a laid back bunch, but driven to do good for our customers. We’re looking for low egos, and high skills. We don’t expect you to have 10 years experience, we expect you to have clean coding ability, and the willingness to take on new challenges.

If you’re desperate to break free from that office life where you co-workers have never even heard of Minecraft, and want to come on board to build kick-ass eCom sites, apps, games, corporate gems, and some Acro driven ventures, keep reading.

As the successful candidate, here are some things you’ll be responsible for:

  • Working independently on multiple smaller tasks or larger builds with shifting priorities and tight deadlines
  • Adhering to and providing accurate estimates for the amount of time required to repair a defect, a build, or to add additional functionality to an existing application
  • Providing efficient solutions in a timely manner for work requests, issues, and defects
  • Communicating well with account managers, supervisors, and clients in regards to work requests, problems and defects
  • Acting as both a peer / mentor to other developers as well as be comfortable asking for help from team members
  • Implementing updates & revisions to web applications

The successful applicant will have:

  • Experience building React applications that:
    • Work with an API to serve dynamic content from an outside source.
    • Will interact with headless Drupal setups through specifications like JSON:API.
  • We work extensively with Drupal which is a PHP based content management framework, and while Drupal experience is a plus, it’s not a requirement.
  • Experience working with design systems or style guides provided by a creative or UX team.
  • Ability to find and fix problems in code, this might not be your code and your only hint might be a cryptic complaint from a client.
  • If you know other programming languages or frameworks, don’t forget to mention them, any technical knowledge is relevant.
  • Comfortable with the command line, such as running scripts or managing files
  • While this is a React position, applicants with Vue, Angular or other javascript framework experience will be considered.
  • Formal education or prior experience is NOT required, we just want to know that you can code, so hopefully you have some code you can show us.
  • All offers of employment with Acro Media Inc are contingent upon the candidate having successfully completed a criminal background check. 

When you submit your resume, please submit some samples of work you’ve done, the first step of our hiring process is always to get some code samples so might as well speed the whole process along.

Here are some things we pride ourselves on being able to offer our staff:

  • Flex start times & Earned days off:  Do you prefer to start at 8:00? or 9:00? We'll work with you. Want every second Friday off? Well we've got a program for that too!
  • Paid Overtime for all roles...including salary positions: What? What?! Yep you heard right. We pay for all approved OT...not that we want everyone working so hard, but with the natural ebb and flow of our industry sometimes it's needed to blast out the OT in order to keep our heads above water. We find this little pay cheque nugget is a nice reward for the over timerz.
  • Slappies: Tougher to explain but once a month we get together and have a little ceremony, some food, a few brews - no altars or corporate chants involved.
  • Fun day: We aim to have fun every day; however, every year for a day we cram a bunch of fun on ourselves. Weee!
  • SPARC Events: Sometimes we have an in-house breakfast, team building events, (less corny than it sounds), competitions, or just a plain little reward for no reason. It's a little spark in our usually normal days. Warning, we wear costumes. Often.
  • Culture: We're a certain type of people. We're all a little different and unique in our own way but we seem to work well together. No one’s perfect and we embrace that. We take our work seriously, but we don't take ourselves too seriously. Check out our site to get to know us!
