Indigo.ca Is Looking for an AJaX and UI Developer

DavidCrow.ca has a posting for Indigo.ca. They are looking for an AJaX and UI developer. Indigo is really pushing to compete with Amazon.ca and they’ve made a number of internal changes to move in that direction. As a book reviewer, they’ve improved the reader review section of Indigo.ca quite a bit.

There are a lot of very smart people who work at Indigo. I think, like any big organization, there’s some red tape and the typical hazards of employment, but if you like Toronto, like books, and know your stuff, check out the posting.

From the job posting:

A book store? Hardly an inspiring place for an ambitious web technologist? Nothing could be further from the truth…

We’re Indigo Books & Music, Canada’s largest books’ retail chain and also one of North America’s leading eCommerce web sites, situated right in the heart of Toronto’s downtown entertainment district. Our online business is expanding rapidly and we urgently need outstanding, creative individuals to help us achieve our goals.

Everything’s going digital these days and so are we. Do you want to be part of this new wave of leading edge technology? Do you want to build the next-generation of beautiful, dynamic user interfaces that can also scale for millions of users? Are you someone for whom every pixel really does matter?

We love Web Standards (no table-based layout dinosaurs here, thank you) and we’re proud of our designs, constantly updating our User Experience to stay ahead of the competition. Therefore a true passion for user interface design & development will be essential.
