About us:
We run a network of media and entertainment screens in rideshare vehicles that provides curated content, advertising, and mobile commerce opportunities to a captive audience in a highly personalized way. By collecting historic ride data, usage patterns and location-based data, our mobile platform profiles riders, anticipates their needs and ultimately guides them to action with appropriate incentives.

Portl recently graduated from Techstars (Comcast NBCUniversal Lift Labs Accelerator) and was recently named “Canada’s Most Promising Startup” at the NACO World Investment Summit. We are backed by large VC funds, media companies and have partnerships with some of the largest companies in the world.

What we are looking for:
We are looking for a seasoned developer who cares about code quality, customer experience and is passionate about complex, interactive applications with a thoughtful UX/UI. Someone who thinks about architecture and the full software lifecycle, scalability, and reliability will be a good fit for this role. To be successful in this role you need to be transparent, reliable, considerate and a team player. You see technical challenges as opportunities and love finding new ways to solve difficult problems. You think deeply about trade-offs between different technologies and can come with quantifiable arguments about what you think is best.
You aren’t afraid to learn new technologies or how to integrate with existing tools and libraries with the freedom to solve problems on your own and learn by doing. You’re high-reaching, results-focused, metrics-driven and always learning. You appreciate self-growth and personal development and you’re looking to grow with the company.

Finally, you are excited about influencing engineering decisions and writing production code that will be running on a network of thousands of in-vehicle tablets.
