Lead Front End Architect
WHO WE ARE
We are Mitel CloudLink, an awesome 70-person R&D team on a mission to bring the best business communications experiences to our customers. Our goal is audacious – to reinvent our industry using the same innovative technologies that Amazon, Netflix, and other leading companies have used to disrupt their businesses – and to have fun while doing it!
We have the soul and culture of a start-up, backed by the resources, global reach and brand of a multinational company operating across five continents. Most of us are in Ottawa but work closely with our global sister teams in world-leading engineering communities located in Berlin, Sunnyvale and Bangalore. We continue to shape a workplace environment that empowers our people and teams to innovate, collaborate and do their best work, with a positive impact on our community and industry.
WE’RE LOOKING TO GROW OUR TEAM
We are building a next-generation applications team and need an ambitious, fresh-thinking expert for front-end architecture. You’ll shape technology direction for web, native and mobile clients to realize outstanding user and customer experiences using leading edge techniques. You’ll also track the dynamic front-end technology landscape remaining keenly aware of the leading edge, be an internal technology and architectural consultant to development teams around the world, and to help bootstrap new programs with the right technical and process frameworks.
You’ll work closely with top-notch UX designers and product managers in a dialog that results in the best user experience we can deliver, explore and define compelling next-generational user interfaces, collaborate with other architects to align front end with back end and security considerations, and with development leaders in program teams to realize Mitel’s next-generational apps.
Your background has trained you in the engineering discipline required to build high performing applications, with the special considerations of internet-scale cloud backends. You balance this with a passion for experimenting and innovating, always with the user and customer in mind, and appreciate the aesthetics of superb design. Even though you’ve been in a senior technical role for likely several years, you still enjoy hammering out prototype code to illustrate product or development concepts to senior stakeholders, or to confirm and deepen your understanding of emerging technologies.
