We’re growing and need a Front-End Developer to join our team of world-class designers and developers. Every member of our team is expected to ship top-notch code and take real ownership for their work. On the same note, this is an incredible opportunity to get down into the trenches of a growing business/product, work with cutting-edge technologies, and solve challenging problems daily.

We're looking for someone who can take high-level designs for our app and create pixel-polished HTML and CSS. We use HAML & SASS (, learning to love these languages would be a requirement along with some basic Ruby. If you don’t already use HAML & SASS don’t worry, it’s super easy to learn and a huge boost to productivity.

You will be working closely with experienced designers and Rails developers on weekly project iterations. You should have a keen attention to detail and the ability to create a simple yet remarkable user experience.

Ideally, you:

  • Have strong HTML5, CSS3, and Javascript (jQuery) experience
  • Are open to learning and using HAML/SASS
  • Have a strong eye for typography, colour, and layout
  • Can transform design mockups into working software
  • Can create modular and flexible CSS (Ever used SMACSS?)
  • Have a passion for interactive design and love what you do
  • Can accurately set and meet deadlines
  • Have tried out Ruby on Rails

Your typical day at 4ormat will involve:

  • Never writing a hack to support IE. Seriously, we don’t support IE.
  • No meetings. We do one Sprint planning meeting every two weeks and you will have the occasional meeting to hash out ideas with the design team, but that’s it.
  • Working at a nice desk that is equipped with an Aeron chair and top-notch Apple gear, situated in our post-and-beam office in downtown Toronto (take a peek here).
  • Writing code that delivers great user experience.
  • Curating what music gets played over our office speakers. Check out what we're listening to right now.
  • Drinking as much espresso as you need (if you’re a real aficionado, our bean subscription is from 49th Parallel Roasters).

Additional Info:

  • We pay competitive salaries and have a very flexible vacation policy.
  • We have benefits: extended health, dental, life, and disability.
  • Our office hours are flexible.
  • We frequently celebrate hitting milestones after work (or in the middle of the day if it’s sunny).
