Job Type


We’re looking for a “back of the front end” full stack web developer. We need you to understand the whole stack but are fine with your skills being catered more to front end development. If you’re enthusiastic, organized and can work with multiple technologies, we’d love to meet you. And because we’re in the business of marketing and making things look good, having some creative flair is a big plus. 


In this role, you’ll be working on a variety of marketing-oriented websites and services. So you’ll need a love for design and a passion for the web.


Skills Required:

  • HTML, Javascript, CSS and Accessibility
  • React, or similar


Highly valued secondary skills:

  • Regular Expressions
  • Adaptability


We also need:

We have a few sites that require regular maintenance and updates.

  • Some NodeJS

Reporting to the Director of Interactive Services, you’ll work with colleagues in departments throughout our agency — creative, communications, media, service delivery and client services. This will require cultivating collaborative working relationships with FKA’s clients, as well as vendors, partners and internal team members.  


How you’ll be evaluated for fit:

The main way we evaluate developers is by reviewing code and looking at contributions to completed projects. Having code examples available on Github, BitBucked, Codepen or similar is preferred. Contributing to or creating your own open-source projects is a major plus. It allows us to evaluate not only your code but what you’re excited about. We like passionate people with a mind of their own and enjoy a balance of confidence and humility. 


Who we are:

FKA offers an exciting, fast-paced advertising and interactive agency environment. And we provide team members with competitive compensation, health benefits and opportunities for professional development and networking.


FKA is also a best-in-class Google Premier Partner and one of Canada’s fastest-growing companies — we’ve been listed on both the 2018 and 2019 GROWTH 500 list of Canada’s Fastest Growing Companies.  We boast a stellar team of some of the best and brightest in the business and have been recognized with awards from the Advertising Club of Edmonton (ACE), Digital Alberta and the International Association of Business Communicators (IABC).


We are an equal opportunity employer committed to improving diversity in our workplace and industry. Capabilities and character are more important than a traditional education and career path towards marketing and advertising.
