Full-Stack Software Developer
Greenfield Labs is Zenreach's Canadian R&D Hub.
Zenreach was created to solve one of the most important problems in the modern economy—the majority of our time is being spent online, yet over 93% of purchasing still happens offline — and there is no link between the two systems. Brick-and-mortar merchants are working decades behind their online counterparts without essential data and tools. We created Zenreach to give them the same level of technology and transparency that anyone operating online has come to expect.
Zenreach is backed by leading investors with decades of experience in building enterprise hardware and software. We were also featured as one of the top breakout startups of 2017!
Our product team in our Kitchener office is a small, tightly-knit crew working on building the smartest analytics and marketing outreach platform ever. What Google did with cost-per-click for online marketing, we're doing for the offline world. If you want to build something that's never been done before and help thousands of local businesses in the process, join us!
What you’ll do here…
As one of our developers, James noted, Zenreach offered him a “trial by fire in a new environment, with a new and quickly changing technology stack, new domain of expertise, in a new office, at a new company that had enough capital for a ‘comfortable runway.’[and] he’s never looked forward to coming into the office as much as this past year”
As a developer at Zenreach, you can expect to be challenged by solving real problems being faced by thousands of businesses around the world. You’ll work at all levels of the stack - starting from the front end code our customers see all the way down to the REST endpoints, backend business logic and databases that make the magic happen. You’ll work in a highly collaborative environment and will interact frequently not only with the Engineering team but also with your peers in Product, Design, Sales, Account Management and Marketing.
Much will be expected of you and we’ll hold you accountable for results. We want you to succeed and we’ll provide you with an open, bright and inspiring workplace along with the latest tools & technologies you’ll need to get the job done. Perhaps more importantly, we’ll give you ownership over what you’re building and we will trust you to make decisions to ensure we’re always moving forward. Action is always better than inaction.
You’re a builder who loves to create something new which has an impact in the world. You love solving challenging problems and pushing yourself out of your comfort zone. You have a strong technical aptitude and you love learning new technologies and keeping up to date on the latest trends. You have experience at all levels of the stack and aren’t afraid to jump in wherever is needed. Ideally you have experience with ReactJS and are very comfortable on the front end helping to create beautiful and useful user interfaces. You’re also comfortable with Python, Go, MongoDB and Cassandra or the desire to learn these technologies.
You’re a strong communicator that is not afraid to have open and honest conversations. You’re also open-minded to new ideas and opinions and don’t get defensive when presented with ideas contrary to your own. You value diversity. You’re passionate and you have a drive to succeed. You don’t wait to be told what to do - you see a problem and you take action to fix it! You take pride and ownership over your work and you want to produce code of the highest quality.
