Career Opportunity

Roketto is currently seeking a talented web UI/UX designer and branding expert with front end development capabilities.

You are a designer first and foremost, and have an impressive portfolio and/or dribbble/behance account. You might be an experienced veteran, or an up and coming star in your field. You’ve been involved in web design hell projects (http://theoatmeal.com/comics/design_hell) more than a few times and you’re comfortable educating clients, and ensuring your design maintains a high level of integrity even in challenging situations. You must be someone who simply “gets it”, and is comfortable taking the design lead on larger scale projects in web, UI/UX, and print.

While the senior development team will be taking care of the heavy lifting, you’ll need to know a thing or two about front end development. Basic understanding of HTML, CSS, PHP, Javascript, jQuery, content management systems, e-commerce websites, social media, email newsletters and WordPress is a must.

Position Description

As a web designer for Roketto you will be given the task of creating custom web designs and developing new websites (utilizing WordPress), as well as maintaining and updating existing client websites. You will also be working on brand development projects, print materials, conversion optimization, landing pages, and much more. These tasks will require you to be comfortable and efficient with the Adobe creative suite, and coding in HTML5, CSS, Javascript and PHP.

We service several clients across many different verticals, so you must have strong time management skills and an efficient work style. You will work closely with our development team and dedicated project manager.

We are looking for someone with minimum 6 months experience in the field (or a real talent fresh out of school) who can hit the ground running. Training will be minimal as we need someone to help us out immediately with our current projects. You should enjoy solving problems independently and keeping up to date with the newest design trends.

Qualifications

  • Great eye for design
  • Exceptional attention to detail
  • Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign
  • HTML(5), CSS, JavaScript + jQuery, PHP
  • Basic understanding of importing & exporting MySQL databases
  • Setting up WordPress websites from scratch
  • Familiarity with cPanel
  • Experience with media queries and building responsive websites
  • Excellent at solving the challenges of cross browser rendering (desktop [IE, FF, Chrome, Safari] and mobile[iOS, Android])

We love Monday mornings as much as Friday evenings. Our symbol is a rocket because, as simple as it sounds, we’re here to take your business further, faster. We believe you can’t fly a business tied to the ground. Our fuel, our economy, is bravery, big ideas and wild dreams. We propel only the ambitious, and avoid anything that isn’t meaningful. We win bids against the big kids in Vancouver & Toronto; they’re also our best clients. Owing to our fantastic hair, we don’t wear hats, but if we did we could hang them on results. Above all else, results. And partnerships. No, that’s not cheesy. It’s true: You need us, we show up, and we deliver. Ask the people who’ve walked into our office without so much as a logo or marketing plan whose businesses are now skipping across provinces & states the way most folks tread the boardwalk. Ask them. We soar when we’re at work because the rest of the time we ride and run and ski and paddle and play like hell in the waters and mountains of this glorious valley. We like to design standing up. We make only the promises we can keep. We’re damn genuine, and gentlemanly. No, we are not like the other guys.
