  • You believe in the value of tests, be it unit, integration, acceptance, or other, and you actively implement design patterns, and your preferred style of working is to integrate these alongside your code
  • Hands-on experience with AWS Cloud and are comfortable designing solutions in the cloud and working with Infrastructure-as-Code, Serverless, and observability
  • You are perfectly comfortable with a “you build it, you own it” mindset
  • You value and seek individual contributions but you also understand team deliverables have a larger and more substantial impact.

Language of work for positions permanently located in Quebec

Knowledge of French is required for positions permanently located in Quebec so candidates can communicate with their colleagues and suppliers in Quebec as necessary. French-language training is offered to all in permanent positions in Quebec who do not have a good knowledge of French.

Other language requirement

Another language is required for this position in order to communicate with clients, partners, and colleagues, who are predominantly located outside Quebec. The company has just one client in Quebec but is responsible for the technical support that this client provides to its subscribers, almost all of whom are located outside Quebec. It must therefore constantly use another language to communicate outside Quebec with these subscribers.
