Full Stack Developer

Employment type: Contract September 18th, 2018 Ottawa, Ontario

We believe that no enterprise should have to choose between data security, regulatory compliance, and ROI.

That’s why we’ve made it our mission to help organizations take full advantage of multi-cloud cost-efficiency, resilience, agility, and scale — with full assurance their data is protected, compliant and with IT controls that extend across the cloud.

We’ve reinvented software-defined object storage by combining the cost and resource efficiency of the object storage approach with exceptionally strong, blockchain-hardened data protection and the capacity to manage data on a petabyte scale.

We’re growing rapidly, and we’re looking for a Full Stack Developer with UI design experience to join our team for a six month contract.

What does the job entail?

As a member of our team, you’ll participate in the development of our leading-edge technology and products.

What does the successful candidate “look like”?

We’re a fast-paced start-up, so we need versatile self-starters who are motivated by new technologies and will jump right in.  We’re not overly hung up on what languages you’re most comfortable with, but we are focused on hiring those with a learning mindset and are comfortable working in a rapidly evolving environment.

We don’t expect to find someone that is a perfect match to the details below, but here are the typical bullet points that we’re hoping you bring to the table:

  • 4+ years of experience developing scalable, enterprise-grade web applications.
  • Strong experience in: Angular v2 or greater (typescript) angular components, NodeJs / NPM, WebPack.
  • Strong experience with TypeScript / JavaScript ES5 – ES6 / HTML / LESS / SCSS / CSS / and current front-end best practices.
  • Proven knowledge of what makes a great user experience and the drive to provide the best experience possible.
  • Deep knowledge of RESTful design and libraries, including security mechanisms.
  • Knowledge of Continuous Integration methodologies.
  • A great sense of humour :).

In a perfect world, you’d also have:

  • Proven experience in UI / UX Design is considered a strong asset.
  • Mobile application development experience (iOS and Android).
  • Cloud deployment and operational experience (AWS, Azure, OpenStack).
  • Deeper database knowledge of data model design, RDBMS and/or noSQL databases.
  • Web, network or application security background.
  • Understanding of front-end automated test frameworks (e.g. Jasmine).
  • Understanding of automated test tools (e.g. Selenium).
  • Experience in back-end application technologies and deployment.
  • Experience in an agile software development environment.

What’s in it for me?

We’re a small team with the heart of a start-up.  We treat each and every person that joins us as a VIP, and everyone has the opportunity to make a significant impact on the success of our business.  Although we don’t have a go-kart track and beach volleyball pit on our premises, we’re big on providing autonomy, mastery, and purpose, and ensuring that our employees have a strong life-work balance.

We create awesome technology with awesome technology, our leadership has been around the block a few times and knows what leading a rapid growth tech company is like, and we treat our people as our biggest asset and differentiator; because they are.

What can I expect when I submit my application?

Our recruitment partner – Pivot and Edge – will review your application and either schedule a conversation with you or let you know that we’re passing on your candidacy within 5 business days.

What does the interview process involve?

The first step is a conversation with Pivot and Edge. They’ll focus on the human side of things and answer any questions you may have. From there, we’ll provide an opportunity for those that exhibit a high potential to be successful in our environment to demonstrate their technical capabilities and then talk shop with some of our engineers and leaders.  Assuming you’re one of our finalists, we’ll be sure to give you a tour of the office and introduce you to some of your future teammates.

We’re not just interviewing you.

We want to make sure that we’re the right fit for each other, so please feel encouraged to interview us at every step.

What is the target start date for this role?

We’re motivated to hire for this role now, though worst case scenario we’d like to have our new teammate onboard by the end of October.
