You want to make a difference?

If, for you, accomplishment and challenge come hand in hand.

If, for you, the opportunity to make a real impact in the community is a reason to get up in the morning.

If, to you, software is more than code, it’s a tool to make the world better.

Launch your career while making a positive impact on society by joining one of Canada's fastest growing healthcare technology companies.

Let’s talk stack
Our backend stack mainly consists of APIs within a Ruby on Rails application built on top of Redis, ElasticSearch, Sidekiq, Docker and MySQL. This backend coordinates multiple different data streams and allows for complex healthcare ecosystems to be optimized and efficient. Our frontend and mobile apps utilize modern frameworks such as Angular and React Native, RxJS, Redux, and Storybook. Quality being at the center of our principles, all of this code is tested using frameworks such as Jest as well as end-to-end testing libraries and services. Finally, we strongly believe in a continuous delivery approach and have achieved a strong maturity in this regard, deploying code in production environments multiple times a day.

Finally, just because you haven't worked with Ruby on Rails before, it doesn't mean you can't apply to work with us! As long as you're open to learning and using the technologies we use, we're open to anyone with experience in object-oriented programming languages such as C#, Java, Python etc.

Curious about our challenges?

Did we mention that we're aiming for world-class? Think about efficient, highly scalable and responsive infrastructures, think interoperability, think multiple languages, think security - where to start! GDPR, PEPIDA, SOC2, and so on - we work in healthcare, that's a given.

Much has been done, but much remains to be done for us to be satisfied. Do you want to participate in our transformation and collaborate in refining the techniques and practices that make the development of modern and complex web applications so challenging, but oh so rewarding? We absolutely want to meet you!
