Sr and Staff SW Developer

Toronto, Ontario
Our client is a rapidly growing FinTech startup with technology at the heart of their vision. As a Software Developer, your work has an immediate and far-reaching impact on their customers, their business and their team.  They take a data-driven, pragmatic agile approach to solving problems and subscribe to a service ownership model. Their developers are involved at every stage of the SDLC, from inception to prioritization, design and coding, automating builds and tests, release management, feature flagging and ongoing site reliability engineering. They take ownership, initiative and pride in their work and support one another’s professional growth and pursuits of technical excellence.

Engineering is well represented in the core founding team which means that they work with the best tools for the job. They currently use React, NodeJS, Java, Scala, Akka, Python, PostgreSQL, Redis, Docker, AWS, Github, and CircleCI. Their system is composed of a retreating monolith surrounded by a growing collection of polyrepo microservices. They're less fussed about how long you’ve been working with these particular technologies and more interested in your knowledge and perspective about them.

If tech is more of a passion than a pastime, they are confident you’ll quickly learn what you don’t know about their stack. What’s most important is that you love the work, respect the team and don’t lose your sense of humour along the journey.

2020 brought with it many challenges and many opportunities. They feel very fortunate to have been presented with the opportunities in front of them and the opportunity to build big, energizing plans for 2021. Notable among them at the time of writing: they will operate remotely for the entirety of 2021.

  • You have a strong technical base, though not necessarily in our stack
  • You have experience delivering reliable, high-performance REST APIs and can speak to salient design and implementation challenges in depth
  • You have a strong interest in database & query performance tuning, and have an affinity to becoming an expert in the field
  • You have experience working in an agile development environment and are experienced with code reviews, service ownership, fully automated testing, microservices, and rapid/continuous releases
  • You have a pragmatic, data-driven mindset and are not dogmatic or overly idealistic about technology choices and trade-offs
  • You have an aptitude for learning new things quickly and have the confidence and humility to ask clarifying questions
It’s a bonus if
  • You are intimately familiar with the tech stack
  • You have worked directly in the finance industry and/or at a SaaS startup
You can expect
  • To be included, encouraged, engaged, heard, and recognized for your effort
  • To make a constant and direct impact on: their platform, their processes, their users, and their team
  • To love your work and its challenges, but also know the company respects your downtime too
  • To always be clear on where the company is headed and how it’s going to get there
