Back-end developer

Back-end developer

(Posted December 21, 2020)

Locketgo’s back-end developers are one of the raison d’être of our organization. We are a software-first company that also integrates IoT products into our service offering. One of the exciting things about being a back-end developer with us is that you have input on how to engineer solutions to build bigger, better, scalable systems.

You:

You eat, sleep, and breathe software development. The prospects of optimizing algorithms makes you jump out of bed in the morning (or work into the wee hours of the morning). The performance, time, and space an algorithm takes matters to you; you’ll even try to optimize the process of making a sandwich. You eat release notes for breakfast and you feel there aren’t enough hours in the day to build IoT stuff.

Us:

We work hard! We’re all proud of the work we do, and celebrate our successes regularly. If we want to bounce ideas around or need help, we’re not afraid to ask our peers for help. Managers’ jobs at Locketgo is to give you the time and tools necessary for you to get your work done… and to make sure you are having fun doing it. Bonus: we want you to continuously be challenged and gain copious amounts of knowledge that will help you reach your career (and life!) goals. We want to hear how you learn best.

 

We are building Canada’s largest last-mile locker network, and we hope you’ll help us along the way!

 

A day in the life of a Back-end developer at Locketgo:

  • 9-9:15am: Slack your daily to-dos to your colleagues to set yourself up for the day
  • 9:15-11:45am: Finish developing feature X to release it to staging
  • 12:45pm – 1:15pm: Sit in on a client call to discuss feasibility and development time of an API integration
  • 1:15pm – 2pm: Discuss requirements for an Epic with the Product manager
  • 2pm – 2:45pm: Squash 2 bugs in the backlog and release them for testing
  • 2:45pm – 3:15pm: Team up with a colleague as Ninja Turtle on our Nintendo system to fight Shredder
  • 3:15pm – 4pm: Release tested features into our production environment
  • 4pm – 5pm: Tackle more features in the backlog
  • 5pm – 6:15pm: Stay late to sneak in a last bug fix – but leave early another day

 

Growth opportunities:

Working as a Back-end developer is the perfect stepping stone to Software Development Lead, Architect, Product owner, Product manager, whathaveyou. To know our software’s ins and outs means future opportunities are practically endless as we grow. While we’re sure you’ll do a good job in this developer role, we’re always happy to promote our hardworking team members as new positions become available. Your growth means our growth.

 

Pants:

You don’t need to go buying new pants to interview with us. We’re hiring real people and want to get to know the real you. Come as you are.

 

If we’re getting technical, your combined experience and education means you have:

  • Developed in PHP (7, 8), JavaScript for both start-ups and enterprises
  • Worked with (each one is a plus) Laravel (the newer the better), NodeJS, sockets, MySQL (Aurora), PgSQL (including complex data types like trees and arrays), Redis or Memcached, SQS or RabbitMQ or any other queues, AWS (EC2, S3, SQS), GNU/Linux/Unix (CLI, Bash, SSH), Docker (including Compose), PHPUnit (or even codeception), Swagger/OpenAPI, git (GitHub, git flow, PR/CV)
  • Are familiar with Agile methodology (Scrum/Kanban mix)
  • The ability to take high-level requirements and build them into fully functional features
  • The ability to adapt to shifting priorities within tight deadlines
  • The ability take initiative and to prioritize
  • Written some technical documentation
  • At least 3 years of practice of the above points

Impostor syndrome:

Not sure you have the experience, but still feel you could be a good candidate? Apply anyway. We’re looking for smart, hard working people, not keywords nor know-it-alls.

Protip:

Cover letters can be long to write, so here’s a shortcut: write us an intro about yourself, and answer with an example to all the points you can in the “If we’re getting technical” section above. Put simply: let us know why you could be the right fit to work together.

You:

Not only can you spot Waldo, but you can describe the process in which you found Waldo in a clear and concise manner. You can also describe what Waldo is wearing, make recommendations on how to find Waldo next time, and what Waldo should be wearing to be found faster too. Have we lost you yet? You should have an eye for detail and be obsessed with making sure things are perfect. You must enjoy breaking things, digging through a haystack to find a needle, and solving unsolvable puzzles. Some technical skills are required, but most can be taught. What’s most important is that you come with a natural passion for problem-solving.
