Silverorange is a fourteen-person design and development agency based in Canada. Our focus is on interesting and meaningful projects. We’ve worked with well known technology organizations like Duolingo and Mozilla, and with world-renowned doctors training other doctors through online education. The core of our team has been together for eighteen years. During that time we’ve focused as much on quality of life, openness, empathy, and a wonderful work environment as we have on our commitment to building great user-focused systems.
Applications close July 16th, at which point we’ll be in touch with only those people we shortlist. This position is available immediately and we will work with you to get you started as soon as possible.
People from a range of backgrounds and experiences make us stronger, and we’re always looking for ways to improve. Our team is getting more diverse, but we’re still missing additional voices from different backgrounds and experiences who could make our work better. Improving this is a priority, so we highly encourage people from traditionally underrepresented groups to apply—we’d love to hear from you.
This position can be remote, though you are welcome to work from our lovely offices in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, Canada.
As it stands, a third of our current team and 95% of our clients are remote (most are international). You’ll need to be comfortable working with remote clients and co-workers regardless of your location.
If you plan to work remotely, we will fly you to Charlottetown for your first week or two of work. All remote employees spend some time each year working with the local team in Charlottetown so count on visiting Charlottetown semi-regularly. For your first silverorange project, occasional travel to meet with clients in Halifax is likely.
Though you may be working remotely, you’ll be an active member of a great small team, both here at silverorange and with our clients. Regular voice or video communication will help keep you in touch with the smart people you’ll be working with.
Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “Project NICU”, a brief overview of your qualifications, links to relevant examples of recent work (GitHub or an equivalent profile is a great place to start), and an explanation of why you’d be great for the job. Tell us about an interesting project you’ve worked on or helped ship. We value individuality and variety, so make sure to tell us what you’re all about. If you have an online presence—such as a blog, Twitter, Facebook—send it along.
