Please review the job details below.

Maxar is seeking to add a solid Front End Developer to our team. We have some amazing talent in other areas of the development stack, and now we need someone to focus on the Front End to help us respond to user feedback and bring our web app to life.

Life with Us


We're building new spatial features into our mission-focused web

app. Our front end framework is Vue with Material Design, and we leverage

the ArcGIS JavaScript API for our dynamic geospatial data visualizations.

The team is currently well-sorted with regard to geospatial tools and

techniques, but to round out the team properly we need someone to help

accelerate our development timelines.

Regarding the UI, there is room for creativity and a need for flexible solutions

to complicated workflows. Our Front End Developer must be able to consider

the users' current work habits, workarounds, and existing tools to develop a

UI that they will find highly adaptable.

education. We offer everyone the opportunity to define their own career

trajectory. Our group has some amazing resources at its disposal specifically

for this purpose. You will work with your direct supervisor, and/or a mentor,

Day-to-day with your colleagues:

You'll be developing geospatial web apps. These apps are used to facilitate greater workforce performance by:

  • Encouraging further analytic exploration;

  • Reducing the friction of flawed workflows; and

  • Enabling potential in individuals that are otherwise stifled by imperfect technologies.

We work in a very Lean-Agile environment without the overhead associated with traditional Scrum.

We've eliminated unnecessary development meetings and we love it!

We work together with our govt. stakeholders in their spaces in a very free-flowing environment.

Minimum Requirements:

Must have a current/active TS/SCI clearance with Polygraph

Bachelor's degree in a related field, e.g. Computer Science, Systems Engineering, UX/UI Design

A minimum of 2 years of software development experience, the majority on the Front End.

  • Backend: Django, Hug, Flask, Node.js

  • Frontend: Vue, React, Angular

  • Database: Postgres

  • Version Control: GitHub or GitLab

  • Build Tools: Webpack, NPM, Yarn

Preferred Skills:

  • Understanding of Agile methodologies, specifically frequent, iterative releases that rely on user feedback to refine features over time.

  • Writing tests using modern testing tools, i.e. Protractor.

  • Exposure to GIS technologies, e.g. PostGIS, Leaflet, or Esri ArcGIS JavaScript API.

  • Knowledge of Design Thinking principles.

  • Previous experience working alongside UX/UI designers.
