gdR is recruiting for a 20 person, Toronto-based startup that is building social responsibility and wellness applications - needless to say, we all need them now more than ever. Their corporate social responsibility platform connects film makers/content producers with employees (Netflix-like interface) - allowing the employee to pick their cause and make an impact (rather than simply being told what cause a company is going to support). As well, their Wellness app immediately benefits our new WFH environment and facilitates a conversation focussed on employee health & productivity.
The Sr Frontend Engineer opportunity provides a diverse and exciting opportunity to architect and build next-generation experiences while having true social impact each day.
You’ll be working on:
Building beautiful and delightful web application UIs that are responsive, performant and extensible

Keeping current with the latest front-end technologies and standards to ensure we are always using the best tools and techniques possible
Being the champion of our front-end codebase to promote product quality and developer productivity
Being an advocate throughout the company for great UX
You’ll need to have experience with:
Professional front-end web application development for 4-6+ years
Development using Angular, React, Vue.js or other modern SPA frameworks
Developing large front-end web applications that perform well on all devices using modern languages and frameworks
Working with modern web stacks (transpilers, linters, build and CI tools, etc.)
Building maintainable and scalable CSS
Writing and maintaining unit and integration tests
Collaboration with designers and developers to suggest and critique ideas and prototype initial concepts
It would be great if you had experience:
