At Focus21 Inc. we build online experiences with purpose, no BS! We're looking for creative, intelligent and resourceful individuals to join our growing development team.

We're looking for a frontend developer with experience in multiple frameworks and paradigms. We work primarily with React, so experience with React and its ecosystem is definitely an asset. However, our ideal candidate is someone who has been around long enough to know how frontend technologies have evolved, the problems they're meant to solve and tradeoffs they've made in order to solve them. You will get the opportunity to make technology recommendations, solve business problems and work with us as we grow to the next level. Sometimes you will be leading the charge and sometimes you will be figuring out how to apply new tech to existing problems.


Location: We get our best work done together in a collaborative environment. Our ideal candidates can join us on site in Kitchener, Ontario.

Development environment: We don't tell you how to set up your machine. If you prefer OSX, you can use OSX. If you like Linux, you can install whichever distro you want. You're free to use whatever IDE/Editor you like. Our vim and emacs users work together in relative peace.

Other important stuff you can expect from us: We believe that no one should ever stop learning. That means we facilitate collaboration, mentorship and continued education. We also provide benefits (health, dental, et cetera), team lunches, special events, and top-of-the-line equipment.


Besides React, our stack includes:

- Node (express)

- Redux

- SQL (mainly Postgres)

- GraphQL, Relay


- Docker

- Webpack

- Researching, assessing and recommending technology solutions

- Scrum and Kanban methodologies; quality delivery, building and meeting client timelines is essential


We work primarily on software relating to healthcare, so we place a high value on security and diligence when it comes to passwords, keys and other sensitive data. Experience working under HIPAA is an asset.
