We are seeking a highly skilled full-stack web developer to join our team in Vancouver to help support and grow the WelTel platform through new features and enhancements. WelTel is a growing start-up company with a proven track record and we are looking for someone who can grow with us. Good candidates will be not only enthusiastic about web technologies, scalability, data efficiency, and code quality but also capable of working on diverse aspects of the application.

We are looking for someone with a good sense of efficient UI/UX, debugging skills, and the ability to work effectively in a distributed team environment.

We need someone with the capacity to grow into being a technical lead and enough experience to lead a small team while creating a sustainable and efficient development environment, as well as understand and be able to manage the DevOps process.

Our product is well-developed, in the market and well-tested. We are in the process of transitioning from research to the commercial setting, adding a number of detailed features to increase the relevance of the application while keeping it elegantly simple.
