LifeRaft Logo

Our client, LifeRaft, a Nova Scotia-based security intelligence company, enables enterprises to be alerted of security threats and business risks using online threat intelligence. On their behalf, Venor is recruiting for a senior Software Developer with experience in node.js for their growing team.

LifeRaft’s critical risk detection software, “Navigator”, delivers proactive and real-time alerts that allow a company to protect its employees, customers, and assets. LifeRaft has over 100 blue-chip customers including many of the Fortune 100 in over 25 countries across industries such as Broadcasting & Telco, Finance & Insurance, Healthcare, Energy, Hospitality, and more.

We are seeking an experienced and versatile full-stack Software Developer to join their team as a key player in the expansion of their SaaS-based Navigator platform, from new feature development through to maintenance. We are looking for proactive individuals that will take ownership and contribute ideas to the product roadmap helping to build a world-class platform.

If you want to work with a dynamic, fast-growing team with an innovative spirit and a determination to help solve new challenges developed by the complexities of open source data – this could be the opportunity for you.

What we’re looking for:

You would be a great fit for this opportunity if you have experience tackling diverse technical challenges and meet the following criteria:

  • At least 5 years of experience building SAAS applications
  • Extensive experience with NodeJS/Typescript
  • Experience writing effective unit tests
  • We will value experience with Microservices (Docker/Kubernetes/Kafka)
  • Experience working with relational databases (MySQL experience is preferred)
  • Extensive experience with JavaScript frameworks (React experience is preferred)
  • We will value experience with PHP/Laravel, Python, and Elastic Search

What’s in it for you?

Impact: Navigator advances corporate security and is designed to identify, track, and validate issues from open source channels (surface, deep web, and darknet) related to executive safety, fraud prevention, and infrastructure protection.

Flexibility: The LifeRaft team has employees working across Canada from the comfort of their own home. That being said, you are also welcome to work from the Halifax office, with the rest of the team… and their office dogs!

Perks: Our client offers a comprehensive benefits plan, a fun & informal office culture, free parking and above-average office-supplied coffee.

Challenge: Your work is solving real-world problems, and is bridging the gap between physical and digital security challenges.

At Venor, we value and celebrate diversity. We welcome applications from all individuals of any race, color, religion, gender identity, orientation, national origin, or disability status.

Interested candidates can forward their resume in confidence to Nick Misener at nick@venor.ca or Steph MacIntosh at steph@venor.ca.
