  • 5+ years of experience in Front-End JavaScript programming
  • 3+ years experience developing large scale web applications

  • You write clean, efficient and testable code, and have experience with TDD
  • Experience building into scalable REST APIs and microservices
  • Understanding of fundamental UX principles

Company Description

Who is Vin65?

Since 2008, Vin65 has come from start-up to now being the leading wine ecommerce and point of sale platform with a growing client base. It grew because of a team effort - a team who is very passionate about the web – with a large focus on the customer.

We started out with four guys in a basement out of a small town called Abbotsford, BC (Western Canada, right above the US border). In 2013, we moved to Vancouver, BC's Gastown area. We now have offices in Vancouver (Canada/HQ), Napa (USA) and Adelaide (Australia).
