Senior Software Developer

Toronto, Ontario, Canada, Canada

For a team to thrive, it needs collaboration and room for healthy, respectful debate. Senior Developers are the technologists who cultivate this environment while driving teams toward delivering on an aspirational tech vision and acting as mentors for more junior-level consultants. You will leverage deep technical knowledge to solve more complex business problems and proactively assess your team's health, code quality and nonfunctional pipelines.

Job responsibilities

  • You will use continuous delivery practices to deliver high-quality software as well as value to end customers as early as possible
  • You will work in collaborative, value-driven teams to build innovative customer experiences for our clients
  • Create large-scale distributed systems out of microservices
  • Apply the latest technology thinking from our Technology Radar to solve client problems
  • Efficiently utilize DevOps tools and practices to build and deploy software
  • You will oversee or take part in the entire cycle of software consulting and delivery from ideation to deployment and everything in between
  • You will act as a mentor for less-experienced peers through both your technical knowledge and leadership skills

Job qualifications

Technical skills

  • You have experience with two or more development languages such as Java, C# or Ruby
  • You can skillfully write high-quality, well-tested code and you are comfortable with Object-Oriented programming
  • Comfortability with Agile methods, such as Extreme Programming (XP), Scrum and/or Kanban
  • Bonus points if you have working knowledge of cloud technology such as AWS, Azure, Kubernetes and Docker

Professional skills

  • You enjoy influencing others and always advocate for technical excellence while being open to change when needed

  • You're resilient in ambiguous situations and can approach challenges from multiple perspectives
