- Optimize the system to improve scalability and speed.
- Assess and implement security best practices for the platform.
- Extend backend API and database models.
- Advocate for modern engineering and DevOps best practices
What we’re looking for:
- 5+ years of experience as a Backend developer

- Experience with cloud security.
Technology we’re using:

- Landing Zone
- CodeBuild and CodeDeploy
- Django / Python
- Postgraphile / GraphQL
- C++ (performant algorithms)
- React / TypeScript
- Apollo Client
- AWS Amplify
This is a hybrid position. We have an office in downtown Vancouver B.C and value the collaboration and team culture that is facilitated by working together in person. We also like to support taking advantage of the fact that software development is inherently ‘remote-friendly’ by allowing flexibility to work from home. For some people, this might mean being onsite for one week and home for the next, or having at least a couple days a week that are in person. Overall, we’re looking for someone that can be at the office about 30-50% of the time.
