We are looking for an Intermediate Back-end Engineer to join our team in Newmarket. The ideal candidate is an experienced Engineer, who knows what it takes to ship great code and is eager to learn. This is a great opportunity to work with a diverse bunch of skilled Engineers, be immersed in a culture of excellence, and to grow into a Senior Engineer.

This role will mainly be focussing on back-end, but you may also be involved in front-end work if you show interest.

Who we are and what we do:

Some exciting news in the Vend journey, we are joining the Lightspeed family! By joining forces, we will continue to power retailers and restaurants with our cloud-based, omnichannel commerce platforms and bring our cities and communities to life.

At the heart of both Lightspeed and Vend are our people and customers. We delight local businesses in over 100 countries and we are trusted by favourite local businesses, where the community goes to shop and dine. We have offices in Canada, USA, Europe, Australia and New Zealand.

💚 Our common mission: ignite the potential of businesses to enrich the communities they serve.We're passionate about enabling people to do their best work. Come work with us and find out what you can do!

Engineering @ Vend:

  • We build new features on top of a modern stack, consisting of web apps (in a mix of Angular & React) communicating through APIs to Go services, backed by databases and Kafka topics, all deployed using Docker in a continuous delivery cycle to AWS
  • You don't need to have experience in any of our specific technologies: we're great at teaching good engineers how to use our modern SaaS stack
  • We don't follow rigid Scrum or Kanban, but we do work in an agile, iterative way, and try to continuously improve and implement what works for us
  • We deploy changes to production every 7 minutes, on average

What you'll be doing:

  • Build stuff: this means coding, delivering new features, code reviews, fixing bugs, peer programming and incident response;
  • Own and be accountable for features and high-leverage coding projects;
  • Structure projects into small, actionable tasks to deliver the most value in no time;
  • Collaborate with engineers, product managers and designers to help plan the work ahead;
  • Learn and teach: knowledge sharing, chapter reviews, demos, mentoring fellow engineers;
  • Work on common services, shared libraries, upgrade/introduce new tooling or libraries, documentation, evolve best practices and processes etc.

What you need to bring:

  • Previous experience as a Back-end Engineer including both successes and failures ("scars"), which help you make better decisions
  • Experience in working on major systems in one or more languages: ideally you've built REST API endpoints on top of data storage layers, and understand concepts like authentication, web security, and the way that frontends consume APIs

Why do you want to work at Vend?

  • You can help build an amazing product in a company big enough for growth but lean enough to make a genuine impact
  • We will provide you with opportunities to develop your career
  • You will be offered a competitive salary

Plus, we have a range of benefits that'll keep you happy, healthy and (not) hungry:

  • Secure, full-time carpark
  • Dog-friendly environment
  • Free fresh fruits, snacks and drinks (and cake for your birthday!)
  • Paid leave and assistance for new parents
  • Travel insurance for you and your family
  • Lightspeed Share scheme
  • Four weeks annual leave + extra day over the Christmas holidays

Where to from here?
