  • You are an intermediate or better level programmer in at least one language (Python, Go, Rust, C/C++, etc…)

  • Aware of the challenges and solutions in delivering multi-tenant cloud services, relevant compliance, and certification requirements for cloud applications

What’s in it for you:

  • Office in Volta – Canada’s East Coast Innovation Hub.
  • Health, Dental, and Professional coverage for you and your family start immediately.
  • Flexible working hours/environment with generous home office allowance.
  • One paid holiday per month + ‘Holiday Shutdown’ between Christmas and New Years.
