Front End Developer

Vancouver, Canada

Company Description

Many companies may be “going mobile” and balancing cutting edge web development, but not everyone is developing on these platforms in a fun, incubator-style environment. At Venture Media, we’re fortunate to have the opportunity to experiment with new projects (it’s pretty exciting to watch your Black Friday mobile project gain 800,000 downloads in three weeks) and revamp established projects accompanied by millions of users – and all this under one solid, self-funded roof.

 

Projects and funding aside, the people are what make this place as great as it is.  Over the years, we’ve learned the value of great teams and we appreciate working alongside seriously talented, kind and authentic people.
