Who is iTel?

iTel is different. We have a stellar team and offer products, services and essentially more freedom than traditional large carriers could ever provide. We are at the forefront of the fiber and cloud innovation in North America.

iTel is revolutionizing the way businesses connect through our services. We are a rapidly growing national carrier that has tripled in size over the last year and we’re not stopping there. Despite our expansion, we pride ourselves in maintaining a startup culture atmosphere with our close-knit team and collaborative environment – come be a part of the revolution!

Front End Developer I/II

We are looking for a Front End Developer to join our growing team. This is a highly technical position with frequent customer consultation. We want awesome problem solvers with native-level English fluency to ensure our customers are receiving the top-notch support iTel is famous for.

About you:

CycleJS so hot, React component on that VDOM so fast… but really just some Angular 1.5 because it is stable and it works. If you love front end development, trying out new frameworks, and have the technical prowess to understand the value in leaving some of the new hotness on the table and instead using a tried and true staple library with some well thought out performance hacks we should talk.

We are looking for someone that has a toolchain they like, a process, and a style – drop in and go. However, if you haven’t settled on such things yet but you are fast and capable, we are still interested in chatting, which is why this position is listed as a I/II position depending on experience. Someone with more experience in this role would have the ability to largely dictate the styling and toolchain of new projects going forward. We are ok with getting a little crazy too, it just has to have a purpose and a goal.

Why Should You Join Our Team?

We’re growing and we’re excited about it. We have our sights set high and the Front End Developer will add to that success by mastering our UI/UX platforms. We are all about pushing the boundaries of what is capable, and having a little fun while doing it. “Great success!” or stunning failure, either way, we are looking to create a meaningful story with each project we do. (We prefer great success on the customer side, but we definitely might have started a small electrical fire in the test lab once).

What exceptional means at iTel

The ideal candidate will be an exceptional front end developer that is capable of communicating the technical capabilities of a platform and helping guide end user experience. They will have the ability to work with a project manager to wade through dev requests to determine what has the most value and how quickly it can be done.

A knack for picking up new concepts and working in a fast-paced environment are also great assets.
