As a Senior Front End Developer, you will be responsible for driving the completion of multiple projects in collaboration with the rest of Yuhu.

Yuhu is a property technology company headquartered in Toronto, Canada. We’re on a mission to Inspire Belonging by providing a product that streamlines the entire real estate ecosystem. Inspire Belonging (our mission statement) is stemmed from our desire to encompass community, trust, happiness, inclusiveness and confidence into a single word. With our technology and culture, Yuhu is shifting real estate from being a difficult and one directional process to being simple, automated and intuitive.
Today our product is used to help manage over $30B+ in real estate assets across Canada and the EU. Our growth plans include an expansion to the US market in 2021 and also growing our amazing team of 25 Yuhulians to 50+ by the end of this year! We bring an owner’s mentality to everything we do which is why we work in a system of accountability where we promote collaboration and teamwork more than anything. Working cross-functionally to find solutions is all part of our culture of radical transparency. We are also a growing startup, and with that, you have an incredible opportunity to make an impact on our product, clients, and, of course, teammates. If you're all about making an impact and bringing value we think you'll do great here!
At Yuhu, you have the chance to not only do the best work of your career but work that is putting Canada on the global stage. We know our technology changes lives and we're committed to making an impact. If that's something that speaks to you—you belong here, too.
