We’re looking for a Senior Software Engineer to join our team in Toronto. If you’re a creative problem solver who looks at the big picture and follows an idea from start to finish, then we’d love to hear from you.

We’re changing the way Canadians think and feel about their money, and we want a creative software engineer to help us realize that vision. We value potential as much as we value experience, so if you think you’d be a great fit we want to hear from you.

concepts and turn these into amazing system concepts that will endure the
test of time 
• You are a technology polyglot and learn new languages and frameworks
in a snap 
• Front end as well as back end experience 
• Understanding of native Android as well as iOS development approaches
with Java and Swift or Objective-C 
• Experience with managing software engineering roadmaps as well as
support tickets 
• Experience with modern dev ops concepts and approaches, ability to
manage code version control, and a knack for communicating effectively as
part of a team that builds often and integrated 
• Understanding of event-driven application architecture 
• Experience with AWS ECS and Cloud Formation
