At Alata we work for the good of the product which in turn serves our customer and drives their success. Our work revolves around two areas: building out our Alata LINK product as well as supporting clients with their application development efforts. We work with an interest in growth – of our skillsets, our product, our customers, our team and ourselves. We support our team members skillset growth through encouraging continual learning opportunities. Our team is made up of several different disciplines: developers (front-end, back-end and full stack), product owners, designers, quality assurance, and support. You may be the next person to join us!

Alata is looking for a front end developer who will help us build high quality and user focused front ends that have a modern and maintainable code base.

Our values speak for themselves and are the backbone of what we do: Integrity, Respect, Commitment and Passion.
