Position: Full-Stack Developer
- Short term contract with the possibility of extension
Limbic Media/Consulting is an exciting and energetic company that is out to change the world. We specialize in real-time interactive multimedia control technologies, along with cutting edge real-time data acquisition systems, analytics, and web development. Based in Victoria BC Canada, Limbic was the 2014 VIATeC Member of the year, as well as finalist for the Team of the Year award in the same year and the Technical Excellence award in 2016.
We have a friendly, supportive, and casual culture, and we value diversity. We strive to produce excellent multidisciplinary work. Innovation and authenticity are our core values; we maintain a firm belief in work/life balance; and we develop our company sustainably and responsibly. We have internalized the Agile principles and practices: our technical team is self-organizing and has a healthy relationship with our management.
We offer competitive salaries and benefits.
You are enthusiastic about web technologies. You know that to create great scalable web applications you need a powerful framework to support it. You can work in front-end, back-end, or dev-ops tasks, and though you probably specialize in only one of these areas (which is okay—we are not looking for an expert in everything). You see the advantages and disadvantages in tools and techniques in the full stack, and are comfortable learning new approaches in these rapidly-evolving domains.
You are a team player. You write code you are proud of, but you do not need to own your code. You are humble. You know that teamwork creates higher quality outcomes that are faster, more efficient, thoughtful, and effective. You understand the individual benefits of teamwork including mutual support and a greater sense of accomplishment.
You believe in Kaizen, or continuous improvement, not only for the code you write and refactor but as a professional. You need to be constantly learning and growing to be happy. You have a life out of work.
