ABOUT US:
We're a talented team of product managers, digital marketers, developers, and product designers building Canada's leading financial product comparison platform, Ratehub.ca (think Expedia, but for financial products). We compare mortgage rates, credit card rewards, deposit returns and insurance quotes.

We love helping Canadians save money by empowering them with the tools to make smart financial decisions. We believe in financial transparency, product innovation, entrepreneurship, and community. That's our modus operandi.

THE ROLE:
We are looking for a passionate web developer to join the Ratehub team who will play a central role in the keeping Ratehub's web interfaces up-to-date and looking beautiful. As a Front-End Developer with Ratehub, you will use modern presentation and state management frameworks to build and improve the face of the business. The ideal candidate will work closely with skilled product owners, UI/UX designers and other engineers to build applications that exceed customers expectations and improve the way they find financial products. Discussions about best practice, architecture and testability are common; we are proud of what we create, and are always looking to take the next steps on our never-ending journey of education.

Creating elegant and responsive web interfaces that work across a range of browsers and devices using HTML5, CSS3, ES6, React, and Webpack
Maintaining and extending our blog and content management systems
Building integration points between systems using web services and leveraging external web services to provide functionality
Working with support, marketing, business and other team members to identify product and process improvements, suggest implementation options, trade-off alternatives, and make engineering decisions
As a growing, late-stage startup, we look for self-starters who thrive in a fast-paced, agile environment – which means wearing many hats, being able to change direction quickly, and showing an eagerness to learn new technologies as the need arises. And most importantly – we look for people who can prioritize, multitask, and deliver – because it's a lot more fun to get things done.
Ratehub offers a friendly, innovative and collaborative work environment and our engineering team is based in downtown Kingston, ON. Our talented team drives our success, and we support each individual in fulfilling his or her potential.
