Sr Full Stack Developers

Toronto, Hybrid · Computer/Software

Our client is seeking senior software engineers who will join as the 2nd and 3rd full-time employees in their growing Toronto engineering hub. The venture spun out of research on corporate commuting at Stanford and the CEO has over a decade of experience innovating in the transportation technology space in varied global contexts. With an oversubscribed seed round in Q1 2024 and a rapidly expanding user base, it’s time to accelerate the product roadmap and harden the platform for scale.

Their product enables employers to craft commuter benefit programs without the corresponding back-office overhead typical of outdated incumbent solutions. They offer commuters an app-based, gamified, user-friendly mobility solution that reduces commuting costs, enables novel, multi-modal commuting options, and promotes active, open-air commutes.

This is an early-stage engineering opportunity with a team at the forefront of transportation and mobility innovation. The environment will be dynamic, fast-paced, and offer significant growth opportunities. The role comes with 2 thematic responsibilities:

  • Individual technical contributions: Developing production-grade backend, frontend, and infrastructure systems. Leading architecture and systems design decisions. Ensuring site reliability and scalability.

  • Technical leadership: Conducting code reviews and providing technical feedback. Mentoring and supporting engineering team members. Participating in the recruitment and selection process for the growing team.

Our client prioritizes both core/transferable engineering skills and specific experience with the existing stack when hiring. The tech stack is presently:

  • Backend: Python/Django REST framework (DRF), Redis, PostgreSQL

  • Frontend: React/React Native, Redux, TypeScript

  • Infrastructure: AWS, Heroku

  • Containers: Docker

The role will be remote-first and distributed until the team establishes their workspace in downtown Toronto, at which time it will become a hybrid role requiring 2 days/week in the office.

Your know-how

  • You have experience shipping production-grade, customer-facing software

  • You have experience designing and implementing backend and frontend systems

  • You have experience with DevOps practices/technologies and development tooling

  • You have experience mentoring engineers and providing technical guidance and feedback

  • You have a strong command of the English language

It’s a bonus if

  • You have startup/founding experience

  • You have transportation/mobility domain experience

  • You are experienced working with geospatial data and GIS systems

  • You have experience as a development team lead
