Requirements

The Job

We are looking for a talented Web Designer with strong back-end knowledge and 4+ years of industry experience to join our growing Marketing Design team in Vancouver. This is a unique opportunity to help us shape the growth of Bananatag and an entire industry by transforming Bananatag online presence into the one-stop-shop for internal communications within large enterprise companies.

This role is responsible for owning our website and related properties from end to end. Because of the wide range of the role you need to have a great eye for design, a thorough understanding of UX and the coding and developing skills required to write HTML, CSS, JS and PHP for building on Wordpress and other similar systems. As part of the design team you will also work closely with us to help guide the future of our online presence.

We are looking for a talented and highly motivated person who can work collaboratively, but also has a strong sense of accountability and can make decisions independently. When you get stuck with something you don’t know, you can seek out your own answers and teach yourself. You’re constantly working on making things faster, pushing the limits and testing ideas using an iterative approach.

Bananatag has a positive, diverse, and supportive culture—we look for people who are curious, inventive, and work to be a little better every single day. In our work together we aim to be smart, humble, hardworking and, above all, collaborative. If this sounds like a good fit for you, drop us a line!
