Senior or Principal Software Engineer(s)

Toronto, Ontario
Principal Engineer

As a Principal Engineer, you will be a strong technical leader on the individual contributor (IC) track with deep experience in software development. Your primary responsibility will be to drive technical excellence and innovation in our projects.

We highly value technical knowledge, effective communication, and sound judgement as core competencies. We entrust our Principal Engineers to leverage these skills in achieving our shared goals across various departments. In essence, we hire smart and responsible individuals, agree on clear objectives, and empower them to make a significant impact.

  • Lead the development of web applications using React and NodeJS (both in Typescript) using GraphQL and a Postgres database on AWS infrastructure
  • Help improve the quality of our implementations by providing code reviews, system designs, and technical oversight, setting high standards for our team
  • Participate in crucial technology decisions to shape the architecture and product roadmap of the company as we scale and serve millions of people across Canada
  • Design and implement solutions for specific tickets
  • Working with code and project management tools such as Jira
  • Ensure our engineering practices follow best principles, strengthening our team and projects
  • Collaborate directly with Engineering Leadership and Product Management to drive forward product roadmap, either directly or by supporting emerging leaders on your team
  • Mentor colleagues to help them grow and share your insights
  • Assist with resource planning, hiring, and onboarding of new team members
Some projects you could expect to work on:
  • Creating new patient and pharmacist flows (eg. intakes, modules, features) to meet the needs of both our national enterprises and mom-and-pop pharmacy partners
  • Scaling our test environments using the AWS CDK (IaC)
  • Working with 3rd party digital health platforms (eg. EHRs/pharmacy software, remote monitoring devices) to facilitate integration and data interoperability that allows pharmacists to deliver more personalized, proactive care
  • Building & versioning APIs that are consumed by third parties
Our Tech Stack
  • React 17+
  • Node.js/Typescript with GraphQL
  • PostgreSQL
  • AWS infrastructure (CDK or Terraform a plus)
  • Typescript (both frontend and backend)
  • Dockerized / Container Infrastructure
  • Github & Github actions
We value technology problem solvers over technology specialists. In general, you should be comfortable with web applications, understand the presentation layer, state management, service calls and server side business logic, persistence, infrastructure, and so on. If you don’t have material direct experience with specific technologies listed above but have worked on similar types of products in the past, you may still be a good fit for our team.
About You
  • You are an experienced full-stack software engineer who has led multiple projects from concept to delivery.
  • You are a team player and you enjoy collaborating with your fellow team members to work through ideas and challenges
  • You have a growth mindset and you seek out opportunities to grow.
  • Your communication style is open, concise, and effective; you can easily explain technical concepts to non-technical parties.
  • You care about the products you build and about the people who ultimately use them
  • You are looking for an opportunity to grow your people management skills
  • You feel comfortable adding value at any point of the software lifecycle
