Job Description

About Us

At TagsforHope we are building one of the leading pet products brands in the world. We are looking for a talented full-stack web developer to join our team of passionate and energetic people who are building a successful eCommerce company with the mission of helping animals.

The role

You will play a critical role in our company and we are looking for someone with good experience, a creative mind and the ability to solve complex problems.

Our company utilizes software in all areas of our business from powering and automating our manufacturing (we build all products in-house in Canada), to powering the complex customization features on our front-end that 1000s of customers use every single week to order custom products for their pets.

This role is challenging as you will be applying the latest web technology to give our company a competitive edge. You will be building complex analytics tools, integrating various APIs from Facebook, Pinterest, Google, FreshDesk, and other 3rd party platforms. You will be creating cutting-edge internal dashboards, utilizing AI and the latest machine learning to automate processes, designing and building complex and real-time product preview tools on the front end, utilizing AR, working with GPS technology, NFC technology, integrating Arduino technology and so much more.

This is a very unique and rare position, as an eCommerce brand we work in so many different fields and because of that if you are a person who enjoys working in a corporate, well-established environment where you work on one side of a project for months, please do not apply.

But if you love completing different projects from beginning to end, you love learning new things every day, you are a creative problem solver, and you would love to grow with a young company, this position could be a perfect fit for you and please apply.

You will need to meet one of the following education/experience requirements

  • College or University Degree in Web Development or similar AND/OR

  • Minimum of 3 years of web development experience in a professional environment

*Our founders are self-taught entrepreneurs, and web developers and so although a formal education is helpful, it is not required for this position as we know first hand that in this day and age you can learn almost anything using the web.


The Perks 

  • Rewards that grow as you do. Our compensation plan includes a competitive salary and an extensive benefits package.

  • Live With Purpose. Our commitment to quality and our mission means that you will be able to contribute to promoting products that you can be proud of and that directly impact hundreds of thousands of pets and owners worldwide.

We are committed to in-depth, hands-on training and passing on our knowledge and experience to help you succeed and expand your skillset.

  • Work-life balance. You will work in a unique office environment with a flexible schedule, surrounded by pets that come to work with you.

  • Satisfy your sweet tooth! You will have a lot of extra perks such as access to our full snacks room, drinks, lots of premium coffee and tea, a kitchen, occasional team outings, and more.

  • Be a part of something great. We are committed to helping feed, treat and rescue pets in need, especially those in need of immediate medical intervention or those at risk of euthanasia. Know that your work will directly contribute to the well-being of those pets and their ability to find their forever homes.
