Are you an experienced software engineer with a passion for finding creative solutions to real-world problems? Do you love supporting more junior team members in their learning process?

Then Jobber might be the place for you! We're looking for a Senior Software Engineer to be part of our Retention Software Engineering team.

At Jobber, we don’t just build a product - we work on real problems that help people in small businesses to become successful. We are inspired by our company values: be humble, be supportive and give a shit, which is not just said but are lived. We work in a collaborative environment where teams make decisions with autonomy and contribute directly to shaping the company’s future. We release early and often while dedicating time to addressing technical debt. We believe in getting instant feedback from our customers and leveraging that to make their lives easier.

We help employees grow professionally; we have a ton of onboarding resources, tutorials, hackathons, and buddies to support learnings and provide opportunities to innovate. We have a range of experience levels on teams which allow for mentor/mentee opportunities. Leaders at Jobber work with empathy and support employees to build a healthy work-life harmony. Bring your dedication and passion to this job to fulfill your goals.

The team:

Our Software Engineering team is central to the success of Jobber - focused on creating software that delivers value to tens of thousands of users around the world. Using an iterative, experiment-driven approach, our Retention team connects our SPs with Jobber features that will help them succeed. We identify new features that reduce friction when adopting Jobber, all while finding new ways to increase their interaction.

At Jobber we never stop growing and learning, and you shouldn’t either. Through continuous 1:1s, dedicated feedback and support from your manager and our Learning and Development team, and your own sense of curiosity, we hope you develop to another level with your skill set.

The role:

Reporting to the Manager, Software Engineering, the Senior Software Engineer will collaborate with other Software Development members on a Scrum team to build an industry-leading product that helps our customers and their small businesses be successful. We’re looking for people who are ready to solve problems that millions of entrepreneurs are facing, using their experience to influence both a product and our team, all the while still working on developing their own craft.

In this role, it’s important that you’re a champion of best practices for well-tested, scalable, and well-organized code. In addition, you customize and extend tools and processes to increase the effectiveness of your team, and mentor others to do the same.

As a Senior Software Engineer, you will:

  • Be involved in the full life-cycle of a feature, from ideation to delivery and adoption
  • Work on and lead experiments, advocating for and planning using an iterative growth mindset
  • Continuously deploy experiments and features using Feature Flag tools such as Split
  • Be responsive and proactive to emerging changes to communication regulations and requirements across the industry
  • Build resilient, fault-tolerant systems systems that keep all of Jobber’s communications flowing, and lower the barrier to other developers to develop comms features
  • Participate in code review and testing, while driving engineering solutions to have consistent practices and reusable code
  • Facilitate group discussions with team members and stakeholders to determine the best solution to our customer's problems
  • Research, communicate, and advocate for the use of best practices within your team’s domain
  • Mentor and coach junior teammates, helping them elevate their skills and careers
  • Understand how and why our customers work the way they do, so you can develop and improve features in Jobber's online and mobile app

To be successful, you should have:

  • A demonstrated level of senior software engineering experience on a full stack development team
  • You have a track record of learning and writing quality code in multiple languages, though experience with Javascript/TypeScript is required (We use Ruby on Rails, React & React Native with TypeScript
  • Experience with the entire software development lifecycle in the Agile/Scrum framework
  • A strong systems focus, on building foundational software for large at-scale applications
  • Ability to quickly move between different features and projects with a strong interest in experimentation
  • A structured understanding of common full stack frameworks, architectures, technologies and patterns
  • An inquisitive mind set; ability to ask a lot of questions, seek out new information and remain open to new ideas and perspectives.
  • The ability to self serve, take initiative and find resources necessary to accomplish a project or solve a problem
  • Enthusiasm for delivering value early and often to customers
  • Experience providing technical mentorship and sharing industry best practices, helping team members navigate complex engineering challenges and stay involved with the latest technologies and trends

It would be really great (but not a deal-breaker) if you had:

  • Exposure or experience in a tech leadership role
  • Previous experience in a Growth Setting
  • Experience working in close contact with internal and external success and support teams
  • Experience using Ruby on Rails and React in a production environment
  • Experience developing in React.js or React Native and other mobile development languages
  • Experience using GraphQL in a production environment
  • Experience with CI/CD (Split, Bitrise, CircleCI)
  • Experience developing for iOS (Swift) and Android (Java)
  • Experience writing code in a few different front-end and back-end languages

You will have the choice to work in either our Edmonton or Toronto offices or remotely anywhere within Canada.
