New York, USA

Job description
Canvas is seeking a senior Front End Engineer with a deep passion for creating beautiful interfaces and interactions. Come help us build unique sites and applications for great brands like MTV, The High Line, Estee Lauder, Grand Central Terminal, and others. This role works closely with our creative team to conceptualize, design, and prototype interfaces; and with Back End Engineers to create high-performance, data-driven applications.

Here are the qualities we're seeking for this position:

Tenacious: You enjoy the challenge of collaboratively planning a user experience across multiple platforms and taking advantage of the unique capabilities of each.
Focused: You're serious about the craft of your work. Details matter to you.
Creative: You're always on top of technology, UX and design trends. You find innovative and elegant technical solutions to complex problems.

We're looking for engineers who:

Get JavaScript. We're not just talking about being able to pull some jQuery off of Stack Overflow. We want someone who understands design patterns and works in a modular architecture.
Are Planners. CSS is easily disorganized, and now with SASS in the mix, it's very easy to get lost. When you start working with designers, you are already thinking about how you're going to transform their designs into reusable, extensible code.
Keep on Pushing. We're not a 60-hour a week startup. We pride ourselves on work-life balance. And from that we want engineers who are working their hardest on developing their skills, and our company's collective abilities, every minute of every day.

This is a great opportunity to join our team and make a contribution at all levels of development, from prototyping through delivery. Be prepared to come in and present some code you've worked on, and tell us why it makes you proud. Also, we may ask you the worst movie you've seen twice. It's just how we roll.

How to apply
Please email your resume and portfolio link(s) to work@canvas.is
