Software Development Engineer

PicThrive is a small, growing startup in the heart of Kitchener, Ontario working with hundreds of businesses throughout the world. We are looking for Engineer #2 to join the team and play a pivotal role in the evolution of our product as we push the boundaries within the fastest growing segment of tourism. If you love independence, impacting customers, innovating, learning on your feet, and hate big company bureaucracy hit us up!

We are a young team that has a collaborative environment, where ideas are shared and each member has a direct impact on the entire organization. You’ll have a direct communication line with leadership within the company. You and the impactful work you do will shape strategic decisions and direction of the company.

Excited? As the 2nd Software Engineer you will be:

  • Designing, building and deploying product features that directly impact our customers

  • Talking to (and visiting!) customers to distill their needs into life-changing features

  • Working with Go, TypeScript, NodeJs, AWS and more!

  • Switching your focus between front-end, back-end, mobile, and media processing tasks

  • Experimenting with new ideas and pushing innovation in our rapidly growing industry

About you:

  • Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science, Computer/Software Engineering or equivalent.

  • Industry experience building technology

  • Independent person who can view and analyze all sides of a technical problem

  • A good communicator!

  • Someone passionate about building, innovating and shipping products

    • Got any personal projects? We would love to see those!

Our Team:

We are a team that values drive, questioning the status quo, and actually implementing those ideas. We wouldn’t be the biggest Photo & Video platform for Tours and activities without those ideals!

Currently, we help 100s of activity operators, across the globe, maintain their 5-star rating, and grow their business, all the while making them more revenue from Photos & Videos. We have processed over tens of millions of photos, making it possible for hundreds of thousands of guests to share their memories with friends and family all over the world.

We are a real startup. That means no “kombucha on tap”, no orange slides or indoor rock climbing walls. We are driven by accomplishing the impossible and having a lot of fun along the way. The beer on the regular, team events (we are in tours and activities after all) and the gym in the building helps too. If what drives you is making an impact, growing with a team, shipping code and becoming something more than just an engineer... Let’s talk!
