COMPANY DESCRIPTION

Join a revolutionary financial technology startup company based in Toronto. Our firm is an Exempt Market Dealer (EMD) and Mortgage Brokerage.  This is an opportunity to dive into the challenges surrounding modern, integrated, end to end sdlc automation. We need detail oriented, enthusiastic and investigative developers who are looking to participate in connecting and streamlining tools to help connect specification to verification.
We have a set of tools in mind (node, javascript, gherkin, cucumber, sql, github, c#, php and azure) but we are ok if you don’t know them. We want to know about that you can pick up new tools and get things accomplished. Whatever platform(s) you have used in the past, our belief is that learning a new language or framework is much easier than learning how to be the kind of motivated developer who will succeed with the tooling we use.
