Software Engineer - Cloud Infrastructure & API Design

Location: Kitchener, Ontario, Canada

Department: Engineering

Type: Full Time

Min. Experience: Entry Level

You're a well-rounded software developer who lives outside the box. You get the concept of "move fast and break things", and aren't afraid to make bold decisions or put cutting edge technologies to work in your projects. You have a deep understanding of what it takes to build and scale a high-traffic website. Developing on clustered infrastructure (Openstack / EC2) is second nature to you. Continuous deployment doesn't scare you. Like Etsy, you ascribe to the Church of Graphs and understand the importance of cross-platform metrics.

Experience with the following technologies would be an asset:

  • Backbone.js or other MVC(esque) web frameworks
  • Node.js and Ruby
  • Postgres or other relational databases
  • Redis or other NoSQL databases
  • Memcached
  • Automated testing with Jasmine or similar
  • Puppet or Chef configuration systems
  • Interacting with and building APIs
  • Amazon EC2 and S3
  • NGINX (Apache would be plus)
  • HTML, CSS, JavaScript
  • Git & Github
  • Linux (particularly Debian)

Working at Oikoi offers flexible work hours at a fast-moving startup, a retina Macbook computer and dual monitors, gym membership, competitive equity options, and office space in the VeloCity Garage - current and former Garage tenants include BufferBox, Vidyard, Pair, Thalmic Labs, MappedIn, and Maluuba.

Github repositories, open source contributions, and personal projects are huge for us - show us what you can do in your application!
