Backend developer


This is a Full-time position in Kitchener, ON posted January 28, 2020.

Backend Developer The product development team at Bridgit is growing again.

We’re looking for an experienced developer to join our team to design and build robust systems that scale and, most importantly, make our customers happy.

Joining us as an experienced developer you’ll be designing, experimenting, testing, and building new solutions and extending existing ones.

We’ve got a lot of big plans and you’ll be participating in their execution from day one.

Designers, developers, and testers work together with no silos or artificial barriers.

We work in one week iterative sprints and endeavor to ensure the team understands the why of any work they’re doing in addition to the what.

On Wednesdays the team is encouraged to work from where they feel most productive and meetings are disallowed.

We are also piloting a “4-hour Friday” work schedule.

We value our time and reject the notion that life should take a back seat to work.

Did you know we have an unlimited vacation policy?

OUR setup The dev team at Bridgit is transitioning from Macs to Linux laptops (Dell XPS machines) as we run our systems on Linux and weren’t loving the new Mac hardware options.

Quite a few of us use Windows or MacOS at home and feel no shame about it.

If you have a strong preference for a specific OS or hardware setup that’ll make you happy and productive; we’re open to that.

We’re happily 100% cloud-hosted with nothing on-prem, and nothing in a co-lo.

We’re going to keep it that way but how, where, and what are open for discussion.
