Who We Are

FreshWorks Studio is a Victoria, BC-based startup that specializes in delivering mobile and web applications. We work with both public and private sector organizations on a range of project sizes - from apps for BC HighWays & the City of Victoria, to our latest commercial contracts with leading BC companies Used.ca & Harbour Air. We are a family of innovators, creators and engineers, having come together from different cultures and countries. Our office is a place where we’re free to experiment with the coolest, most cutting-edge technology. We are a company that is sharing its passion and expertise to help others thrive in the digital future. We are building a community that creates smart and elegant mobile applications, seamless product strategies, responsive web applications, and story-driven user experiences for bold entrepreneurs. We don’t ask for years of experience, because it’s not about how long you’ve been practicing a skill, it’s how well you do it.

The Job

You’ll be developing web applications for us, some of which are developed in tandem with iOS and/or Android components - so teamwork is essential. Your primary responsibility is ensuring the performance, quality, and responsiveness of applications is up to FreshWorks’ standards of excellence.

You work effectively with prototypes and mockups, and converting designs into CSS or SCSS is second-nature to you. Working with frameworks like React and Redux should be a breeze.

You should have a good understanding of SQL database structure, particularly using MySQL & Postgres.

You’ll be working with backend services like Firebase or creating/consuming custom RESTful APIs in PHP or Golang. Experience with offline storage, threading, and performance tuning is an asset.

You will be deploying servers on AWS, and should be comfortable with Docker and the command line.

We work on both public and private contracts, so a good understanding of networking code, or securing user data is important. You should know when to use encryption and other security protocols.

You have experience with popular libraries such as React, Redux, and Angular.

We’re massively expanding, 2 to 25 in less than a year and we’re about to move to a much larger office with extra seats for amazing people like you!
